The importance of a book reviewBy nonfictioness
Book reviews are becoming ever more important these days as more and more people chose their books online. Book bloggers and reviewers can be vital to the success of a book. The power is in your hands to help your favourite authors do well, freeing them to write more of the books you love.
Amazon reviews can help a book to become more visible, the more reviews it gets the better the book will get promoted on Amazon.
After 20–25 reviews Amazon includes the author’s books on ‘you might like’ and ‘also bought’ lists.
After 50–70 reviews Amazon puts the book in a more prominent position and may include it in a newsletter.
