News & Opinion: Publishers Push in the Blogosphere

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 2:33 PM – Filed under: Current Events & Public Affairs, Publishing Industry

This article from the The Book Standard attributes bloggers and their reviews to the success of Freakonomics.

I will tell you that I track certain titles to see what people are saying and the level of conversation with Freakonomics was on par with Blink when it first came out.

If you were one who got a copy from William Morrow, leave a comment. Did you review it on your blog? Do you think it was the right book for the blogosphere? Would you accept books from other publishers?
