Poll Results Are In!

Thank you to everyone who took the time to read the poll question and answer it! I really enjoy seeing the results. Speaking of results, how did everyone vote on what they'd do once they'd read a book, fallen totally in love with it, and discovered that it was the first in a series?

Out of 119 votes cast--

40 voted for buying as many of the books in the series that they could get their hands on. I can totally identify with this one. It's the thrill of finding a new author and the security of having series books just waiting to be read!

34 voted for making an emergency trip to the library. (And in many cases, I would imagine they'd go online to reserve the books!)

26 actually had the restraint to only get the second book in the series. This is admirable and probably shows that I'm not the only one who's fallen in love with the first book in a series and then had the rest fizzle out. What a disappointment!

13 voted to check their favorite swap sites for the other books in the series. I would imagine many of you who read my blog regularly guessed that I cast my vote for this. You'd be 100% key-rect!

4 voted to make a note of the series--they may get back to it, they may not. Sounds like they've got TBR shelves packed to bursting like mine!

2 voted to wish list the other books in the series in hopes that they'd get them for birthdays or other gift giving occasions. I wish them luck. Seems like most people don't pay a lick of attention to my wish lists, even though I do keep them current!

Thanks again for voting in the poll. As you can see, there's a new one up. I tried something different with the new poll: you can choose more than one answer. Let your voice be heard!


  1. Truth be told --- if money were no object, then I would definitely rush out and buy as many in the series as I could get my hands on. However, since I must pinch those pennies, I had to limit myself to purchasing only the 2nd in the series.

    It was fun to read the results.

  2. What an interesting mix of answers. I always enjoy your poll questions!

  3. I had voted for buying all the books by that author in that series. It's exactly what I do too whether or not I get to read them. lol. I love these polls. They're a lot of fun.

  4. I went for the emergency trip, since safest way to get the book here at once :)

  5. I like the polls a lot. It's fun to see what others do. I voted with buy the rest of the series. I don't necessarily buy these all brand new as I love used book stores.

  6. Molly--I know what you mean. Money usually is "an object". :(

    Thanks, Melissa!

    Dar--just laying in "fuel" for retirement, eh? Makes perfect sense to me!

    Blodeuedd--As long as you didn't break the speed limit getting to the library! ;)

    Margot--I no longer buy them all new either. I have two excellent used bookstores very close by.

  7. You always have the best polls and such good writer-ups. I was one of those who check the most popular answer.

  8. Thanks, Beth! I've started carrying a small notebook around because I never know when I'll get an idea for a poll question, and I certainly can't rely on my memory! LOL
