Washington Post mulling publication of cookbooks, travel guides

MediaWire tip

A Washington Post reader received a survey Wednesday morning saying that the company is considering publishing books "on a variety of topics." The survey inquired about interest in six areas: the construction of the Martin Luther King Jr. monument, travel guides, Washington-area dining and travel guides, and Washington photography. The reader tells me the Post also asked how much he'd be willing to pay per book: $35, $25 or $15. I've asked the Post for more information; I'll update if I hear back.
