« A Modest Proposal | Main | On the Occasion of a New Volume by Clive James »

March 20, 2007

Free Stuff

Last month I mentioned that Political Theory Daily Review had found a sponsor -- the magazine Bookforum. As it happens, the new issue just arrived in my mailbox yesterday, even before it reached the newstand, which doesn't always happen.

Well, now you can read it, too. As of the April/May issue, nearly all of the contents are online for free. It looks like a couple of items are print-only, out of about 45.

I'm still partial to the paper version. Easier on the eyeballs, for one thing; plus, the ads in a book publication actually count as information that I actually want to see. But at a time when most newspaper review sections are shrinking when not disappearing, it's good that one publication seems to be doing well enough to make its content available to the largest possible readership.
