Friday Poll ~ Readers’ & Writers’ Distractions

As always, we lead off with the results from last week’s poll—Are there too many books in the world? 

Readers - Writers Distractions

The top vote went to “No” with 66.7% of the responses.

The “Other”, Fill-in answers were “Hell No” and “Not when you consider the millions of poor who can’t get any books” at 16.7%.

So, “No” was actually 83.4% !

Then came “Yes” and “Maybe” with 8.3% each.

Sure looks like most readers of this blog are  quite happy with billions of books :-)


Now, this week’s poll—What Distracts You from Reading or Writing?

I’ve constructed the poll so you can answer as a reader, or a writer, or both…

I actually did a mini-survey with some readers and writers to come up with the answers you can just tick-off with your vote.

And, of course, there’s the handy “Other” so you can fill in your unique votes.

When you use “Other”, be sure to preface your distraction with “Reader” or “Writer” (or, Both) so I can tally them separately…

Naturally, you can vote for as many choices as you want :-)
