A Discussion On Local Books By Some Filipino Book Bloggers
Hi, there's a nice, and fun, discussion over at Guy Gone Geek that may be relevant to the marketing concern. Alongside a debate on the attractions of zombies vs vampires was an observation on how local publishers hardly make use of popular books sites, like Goodreads, Shelfari, and Amazon. Search for local books and there are few. Users would have to upload titles, authors, tags, ISBN themselves. This is pity because these book sites are also widely used to generate book recommendations. One just has to type keywords or search within a category. I know my TBR has grown to monstrous proportion partly due to the diabolic power of these sites to generate search results. I would click on a link, read the book overview and reviews, and go, “ooh, like.” =P
