Kirkus Reviews Hints at “A Few Interested Buyers”

kirkus.jpgToday the Kirkus Reviews Twitter feed sparked hopes that the book review outlet could survive.

The book review outlet posted a brief, encouraging note: “Kirkus currently has a few interested buyers. Stay tuned…” Our digitally obsessed sibling eBookNewser spotted the news.

On Dec. 10th, it was announced that Kirkus Reviews would close, taking away about 5,000 book reviews a year–a tremendous loss for the publishing industry. Earlier thia month, the venerable book review outlet Kirkus Reviews returned to the microblogging site to reassure readers that the January 1st issue of the magazine will still be published.

UPDATE: The post has since disappeared from the Kirkus Reviews Twitter feed. GalleyCat has reached out to the magazine for comment.

UPDATE 2: Sarah Weinman reports on Twitter: “Per the managing editor of @KirkusReviews: ‘no new info at the moment. Just still working through possibilities, but nothing to report.’”
