BOOK REVIEW LISTINGS--GOOD IDEA?
Someone raised the question recently about whether or not it is advisable to have reviews of your books listed on such sites as www.authorbuzz.com or www.bookreviewdirect.com. The question came in relation to whether librarians check such sites to determine whether they will purchase the books for their library. The word—from the librarians—is that they consider such sites paid advertisements, so don’t depend on them to help make those decisions. It may be that bookstores would be more likely to consult them.
