There’s one less place to send your review packets. Nielsen Business Media has decided to close down Kirkus Reviews this month.
Founded in 1933, the Kirkus Review staff and more than 100 freelance writers covered approximately 5,000 fiction and nonfiction titles each year. The bi-weekly magazine was used by both libraries and bookstores to make purchasing decisions.
Nielsen Business Media also ended Editor & Publisher, the monthly magazine which covered the newspaper industry.
