Friday Poll ~ Are There Too Many Books In The World?

First, the results of last week’s poll—Should All Writers Blog? 

Too Many Books?

Top Vote at 50%—No.

25% for Maybe.

Almost 17% for Yes.

And, one vote in the “Other” category—“If they want to.”


Now, with self-publishing in full swing, there are more books pouring into the world every day than ever before.

Leaving questions of the quality of this abundance of books aside , some folks think it’s harder to sift through it all to find something to read.

Some aren’t bothered by the flood and just grab what strikes their fancy first.

Some people are working very hard to keep up; and, they’re writing apps to help readers sift through the welter of choices…

So, this week’s poll—Are there Too Many Books In The World?

Again, it’s a real simple poll; but, there is that “Other” space to make the results more complex :-)

    Books will find their readers, eventually.

    About last week’s poll, I know for fact that not all should because I should not. LOL.
    You’re really wonderful at it. I tried so hard and just can’t do it, so I leave it to people like you who seem to love it and are good at it. ;)
    As for this week’s poll, as the world’s most passionate book hugger, I think I speak for bibliophiles everywhere when I say, too many books? No such thing. Sifting through mounds of unread pieces for my next new favorite is just another thrill. Keep ’em comin’. Variety is the spice of life.

    Happy Saturday & I sure hope you’re feeling less wonky today.

    “Books more books!”
    They all nodded clutching their hardbacks, paperbacks, and digital literature-literary-literacy-literally. The world was better for it.
