This post at the Story Siren made me wonder about when to post reviews. I often read before that readers don’t appreciate a review weeks before the publication date because they can’t get the book right away. The Penguin employee now says
…I often have people asking me why bloggers don’t post more reviews pre-pub. I personally would like to see more reviews pre-pub, especially for big titles we’re trying to build buzz for.
So, what is the best time to post a review of a book that is not out there? As a blogger how do you handle it? As a reader what would you prefer?
