Does selling a million books mean much these days–especially to the average reader?

Thursday, September 22nd, 2011

Question by Sky: Does selling a million books mean much these days–especially to the average reader?
It doesn’t even dawn on me–personally–if the author in question has sold a million books or not.

The question I’m asking myself is: “Is the book I’m holding in my hands good enough to read?”

I’m often sold on the cover work and the plot–two things that come to mind when I go book-hunting.

But these trends…? These “fad” novels? Turns me off completely.

I won’t even look at them–much less read them.

Thoughts?

Best answer:

Answer by Rachel
It doesn’t matter to me how many copies a book has sold… it’s all about the quality of the book, whether recognized or not.

Granted, I love Harry Potter. But I would love it even if everyone else hated it… because I honestly like it…

Most books lately that sell a lot of copies however, are just fad books, with no real substance *cough* Twilight *cough*…

Know better? Leave your own answer in the comments!
