Newsweek Plans Return to Print (NYT)
Newsweek, the struggling weekly magazine that ceased print publication last year, plans to turn the presses back on. The magazine expects to begin a 64-page weekly edition in January or February, said Jim Impoco, Newsweek’s editor-in-chief. Impoco said in an interview that Newsweek would depend more heavily on subscribers than advertisers to pay its bills — and that readers would pay more than in the past. “It’s going to be a more subscription-based model, closer to what The Economist is compared to what Time magazine is,” Impoco said.

Journo/novelist Anna David signed her book, Party Girl, at Book Soup, and her friends and fans turned out in herds.

She writes:

The experience was quite surreal–from seeing my name on the marquee outside to having people wait in line for over an hour to have me sign books–and over way too fast. The whole night, friends were grabbing me and saying, “This is so amazing! How do you feel?” but I was just completely overwhelmed so I basically stammered incomprehensibly. By sometime the next afternoon, my anxiety had finally quelled and I could relish in how incredible the entire evening was. I was just about eight hours later than everyone else.
