  • For ALT2, she had left the bookshop service in the early 1960s before it was renamed to kirkus reviews in 1969. Same with ALT1 as it wasn't named Kirkus Reviews while she was there. Also, the date is a day off cause I wasn't finished until november 4th UTC time. For the lead, I'm not sure if I should either quote "bookshop service" or not as it was named Virginia Kirkus Bookshop Service. --MrLinkinPark333 (talk) 03:46, 4 November 2019 (UTC)
  • Symbol confirmed.svg Article is new and long enough. QPQ has been completed. No concerning pings on Earwigs. Hooks are sourced and short enough for DYK; I think ALT1 is the most interesting, though I don't think "bookshop service" needs to be italicized in this context.
