Booksonic in the media

Updated: 2020-03-27

I was recently made aware that a computer magazine had written an article about Booksonic in their holiday edition for 2019. How fun!

This lead me to do some Googling and it turns out this wasn’t the first or last time Booksonic had been featured. So I thought it could be fun to compile a list about when and where this has happened. If you have read about Booksonic somewhere not mentioned or maybe you are even planning to write about Booksonic I would love it if you let me know at [email protected] or in the comments below.

Unfortunately Linux Journal has since had to shut down, the good news is that when they did they published all old issues for free on archive.org so if you want to read this issue it is available here.
