Surveys consistently say that 95% of book sales are based on personal recommendations. Readers discover new authors, then they tell their friends. The friends, in turn, tell their friends and reading groups. They also love to tell others about the books their club reads. Book clubs can be an important component of a sales and marketing plan.
