Online Only: The Common Review

common review.jpgYet another print publication is packing up and calling it quits. The Common Review, the magazine of the Great Books Foundation (headquartered here), is ending its ten-year print run and will be published online only. The online version is set to debut in the fall of this year and promises to offer readers the opportunity to engage with the contributing authors in online discussion forums. New exciting venture or disheartening end of another print publication? Well, the online version will give you plenty of room to discuss.
