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 :-)

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 :-)

Now that you’ve voted, check out the article, “Are There Too Many Books?
