According to the New York Observer Tom Lutz, launched a book review site lareviewofbooks.org.  While I applaud any endeavor to provide honest reviews, I felt that the tone of the article made it seem like a one of a kind endeavor.  In my opinion there are other sites that offer book reviews and remain committed to the industry.  Portlandbookreview.com is one such site, which I will admit, I do reviews for them.  Another such site is the Sanfranciscobookreview.com (I do not review for them.)  So, while Lutz is offereing another option, which is always a great thing for writers, he is not the only one.  Print media may be cutting reviews, but they are alive and well on the web.
