Kirkus Reviews isn't dead yet
Reports that Kirkus Reviews, the biweekly magazine that provides more than 5,000 book reviews a year, would be shutting down at the end of 2009 may have been premature.
The publication, which was founded in 1933, has a potential buyer, and will continue publishing at least during the negotiations, which could take 2 to 3 weeks.
"It sounds promising," Kirkus manager editor Eric Liebetrau told the Associated Press. He would not say who Kirkus' potential savior was, however.
