Personally blurbs do not affect my opinion of a book much, if at all. Consider that books are so easy to order online. So, if a blogger (such as yourself) posts about a book with a link, if it matches my interest, I'll at least pull it up and look it over. If it looks to be worthwhile I'll put it on my Amazon list. Reader reviews can also be helpful on Amazon. Unless it is a home run blurb from someone who is well-known and influential, it seems like it would have minimal impact. Whether someone I've never heard of likes a book means very little. It is a small data set, but at first pass it makes sense.
