Poll Results and What I Did With Them

Happy Saturday All!

Well, I have a review to put up (which will be done separately) and I wanted to tell you the poll results. Both A Death in the Family and Godforsaken received two votes. I tried to find A Death in the Family and couldn't. I must have 'put it in a safe place'. And I tried to start Godforsaken this morning and just couldn't get into it. So, that's a bit disappointing. The only book that didn't get a vote was The Last Prince of Ireland. I started it this afternoon. I quickly fell asleep, but only because I was up very early. I'm sure it'll be good, I love the author.

I have a survey that I filled out to share with you all. Let me know if you do it as well, I'll come by and check it out!!

Mass market paperback if possible.

Amazon, cause I don't know what brick and mortar is. But BN online is better.

  1. I'm sorry, but I love the smell of books...especially new ones. Those old ones at our library at school are just nasty.
    ....And I loved Richard Scarry when I was little, too! (:
