Washington Post to Expand Sunday Edition & Increase Book Coverage

The Washington Post will increase its Sunday edition paper by creating separate Arts and Sunday Style sections. Beginning with the January 23rd issue, book coverage will play a larger role in the modified Sunday edition.

According to Yahoo! Finance, two types of book reviews are planned. The Sunday Style section reviews will examine books that focus on pop culture topics and the Arts section reviews will focus on arts-related books.

Responding to the news, fiction editor Ron Charles posted on Twitter: “INCREASED book coverage in a mainstream newspaper! When’s the last time you saw that? (Maybe indie bookstores will come back too!)” Other changes will include a new KidsPost tabloid and a more developed Real Estate section.
