The Huffington Post launched a book section, which means you can expect them to republish book stories from the AP or cajole celebrities to write about their favorite books for free. I keed, I keed. Anyway, anything to get people to read or more interested in reading if okay by me.
The site is partnering with the New York Times Book Review (bonus!) and aims to be, as editor Amy Hertz tells The Observor, “a gathering place for all kinds of book lovers — readers, booksellers, writers, editors, reviewers, book publicists, sales reps, book designers and printers — to speak to each other, to exchange ideas, to honor where we’ve come from as well as the road ahead.”
