A significant advantage that traditionally published books have over self-published books is the blogger and consumer reviews they get due to readers not being aware of self published books.
While the media reviews appear in newspapers and magazines, most are relevant for just a day or a week. With limited book reviews on the internet, what is a must is a significant number of consumer and blogger reviews that are perpetually present on the web. Anyone surfing for the book also gets to see what other consumers and readers have to say about the book and this, in turn, helps in forming the buyer’s final decision.
Newspapers and Magazines
Just like sports fans head to the last pages of the newspaper every day, book buyers check out the book review columns of newspapers and magazines to get a list of the recommended books.
