Kirkus Is Closing

Nielsen Business Media has announced that they are shuttering Kirkus Reviews, the long-running review publication for the book trade, as it sells its major assets to e5 Global Media Holdings. (Reports Publishers Weekly, itself primarily a book-industry news and review publication from a firm also trying to sell the division PW is part of.)

It's bad to see Kirkus go, I guess, but I haven't read it in at least a decade myself -- and, when I did read it, the reviews were uniformly wrong-headed. So I can't feel more than minor remorse.
