New in the NYT Book Review

Are you seeing things? No, the Books section of the New York Times has been redesigned to accommodate its smaller size. It will also include caricatures (because people like pictures better than words, hence the book trailer trend), and little icons to help people figure out if they are reading a normal review or part of a recurring column. The NYT thinks readers are stupid, too!

Out of all this, however, there is this one gem: “This issue also introduces a new best-seller list, devoted to trade paperback fiction. It gives more emphasis to the literary novels and short-story collections reviewed so often in our pages (and sometimes published only in softcover).”
