Due to "the economy," the Washington Post will discontinue the stand-alone version of Book World, its Sunday book review, and fold it into two other parts of the newspaper. This leaves just the New York Times and the San Francisco Chronicle as the country's only two papers with separate lit-crit sections. [ArtsBeat/NYT]
