NPR Bucks the Trend & Bumps Up Book Coverage

At a time when American newspapers are cutting back on book news and reviews, it's great to hear that National Public Radio is bucking this mainstream-media trend.

Publishers Weekly reports today that the NPR web site is beefing up its literary features and reviews and adding original online content to the site.

"Books are among the top three topics attracting traffic to the NPR site," NPR's senior supervising producer Joe Matazzoni told Publishers Weekly. "Book content really works for our audience."

Where do you get your book news?

Good news. Living out away from a large city, NPR isn't clear as a bell. I usually get my coverage from January Magazine, the NY Times and random sites.

Don't let broadcast reception keep you from NPR. Even though there are two NPR stations in town, I do most of my listening online. As long as you have a high-speed internet connection, you can listen to just about any NPR station in the country or the national feed from NPR.org.
