Book Comments/Review

I think that a section one each book for comments and reviews on that particular book may help to boost sales of that book. However to save any one commenting it could be implemeted that only customers who have purchased that book could comment on it.

Just a thought

Love this idea.

Would be great to read reviews on other books and to get one on my own.

I’m all for this—it’s always great to get feedback.

Yes, this does sound like a good idea indeed, as long as the comments are from buyers only

Might it be more useful to read reviews to understand why people did NOT buy the book?

But a review should be based on the final product and not a 15 page preview, don’t you agree Tony?

I often see previews that inspire me and I’d love to tell the author that, so I think feedback should be open to all. Would *love* to see this feature added! Surely getting work seen and receiving feedback is part of the joy of Blurb?

Hi,

Just wanted to thank everyone for their comments in this thread and to let you know that we’re listening. Last night I posted a preview of a prototype for an upcoming book comments feature. 

Let us know what you think here.
