We skipped a week last week because I was traveling, but we’re back with another weekly poll this week. But before we look at this week’s question, let’s check out the results from the previous poll. The question “What factors matter most in your decision to buy or download a book?” resulted in a whopping 700 votes, so we have a solid idea of what makes you guys want to read a book.
By far the biggest factor was a blurb that appealed, followed by tropes. Surprisingly, an attractive cover didn’t rank third, like I had expected, but came after a sale, being in KU, and a recommendation from an author you loved. In fact, only 9% mentioned the cover as being a deciding factor. That was very interesting to see.
Some readers offered some options of their own, including a catchy title, length of the book, part of a series, good sample or opening line, and reviews on Goodreads. Thanks everyone for voting on that one. Super interesting to see!
Let’s look at this week’s question, which is about my books. Which book(s) of mine have you NOT read? Let me know by voting!
