Sales of prestige product books are limited by what is considered credible by buyers–when your book becomes an available #1 best seller, you have faith that enough people will find your product a worthwhile read. And a book that finds itself inside a #1 bestseller list by itself will only increase faith that people may be interested in your product.

I have known that feeling; I have seen it as a pundit and best-selling author; and I saw it recently with RoboidArt which was a #1 Best Sellers Blog post and the most buzzed about title for the first 10 months of its existence. So what can readers expect from an #1 Best Sellers book that appeals to a book reviewer?

The Brief and Strange Life of Oscar Wao with the Prayers of Mrs. Mound from an androgynous android, the Esquire Vanity Final Issue with a live computer interface wedding and a scary story of an “Alienate-Grief” Facial Anomalies Examined from a virtual avatars body.

E-books and other sources of information about fictional characters are less credible than literary or historical accounts, films and television programs.
