Salon and Barnes & Noble have entered into an online content sharing agreement. Select articles from BN.com’s Barnes & Nobel Review will appear on Salon, and Salon in turn will share selected elements of its content on BN.com. Salon’s site will, of course, also feature affiliate links to BN.com, for readers who want to snap up copies of books mentioned on the site.
“Salon.com has long set a high standard for smart writing and editorial excellence on the web,” Barnes & Noble Review editor-in-chief James Mustich said in a press release. “In an era in which compelling writing about books is fast disappearing in newspapers and magazines, it’s exciting for us both to have this opportunity to nurture it online.”
Long known for its political coverage, Salon has recently been stepping up its lifestyle offerings.
