NPR to Provide a Daily Dose for Book Lovers

On more than one occasion I’ve been stuck in highway gridlock and wished, among other heart bookthings, for a book station on the FM dial—you know, 24/7 reviews, news, gossip, maybe even some audio excerpts. That day is still far off—radio is more profit-driven than ever it seems—but happily, NPR is giving book lovers a bit more to listen for with the announcement of a new feature in its daily programming. Beginning today, “Book News” will feature a daily dose of reading and publishing-related news that, as NPR says, will be “culled from the headlines, news wires, academic journals, press releases, and authors and publishers themselves. Finally, something to look forward to in traffic. For more details, visit NPR.
