Say it ain't so C-Span!

I am very sad this morning as I just found out C-Span is canceling Booknotes:

In announcing the cancellation of “Booknotes” — C-SPAN’s popular author interview program — yesterday, host Brian Lamb was haunted by the numbers. He spends 20 hours each week reading books in preparation for “Booknotes,” he estimates. That’s 1.8 years of his life that have been dedicated to reading since the show debuted April 2, 1989. Now he wants to reclaim some of that time for his personal life.

Oh fine, he thinks about his personal life but did he ever think about my life? So selfish Mr. Lamb, so selfish . . .

I guess I will have to be satisfied with Book TV now.

About the author

Kevin Holtsberry

I work in communications and public affairs. I try to squeeze in as much reading as I can while still spending time with my wife and two kids (and cheering on the Pittsburgh Steelers and Michigan Wolverines during football season – oh, and watching golf too).
