The Midwest Book Review is run by editor-in-chief Jim Cox. Established in 1976 to help promote literacy, library usage and small press publishing.
MBR started as a one hour weekly radio show on WORT-FM and debuted as a weekly 30 minute television show called Bookwatch on WYOU-TV, in Madison, Wisconsin. Now, it’s solely online via the MidwestBookReview.com website with nine monthly book review publications: Bookwatch, California Bookwatch, Children’s Bookwatch, Internet Bookwatch, Library Bookwatch, Small Press Bookwatch, MBR Bookwatch, Reviewer’s Bookwatch, and Wisconsin Bookwatch. The magazines are curated by Cox’s team of 81 volunteer book reviewers from across the country.
