POLL: Should erotica be considered literature?

FotorCreated

Ever since Fifty Shade of Grey blew up there’s been many questions about erotica. Can it really be considered literature? Are they really romance novels or are they just women’s version of porn? Is it appropriate to read erotica? The list goes on and on. So what’s your opinion? Are erotic novels real books or just pleasurable reads that should be stopped. Vote in the poll and leave your thoughts in the comments. I’m excited to see where this conversation goes.

POLL: Should books be adapted into movies?

FotorCreated

It seems now more than ever books are being turned into movies. From Harry Potter to Paper Towns it’s gotten a little out of control. It’s almost strange now if a best selling novel doesn’t become a movie. But is this a good thing? Yesterday guest poster Shant Istamboulian discussed books that were turned into great movies but that’s not always the case.

How do you feel about books becoming movies? Is it a bad idea or is it cool seeing your favorite books becoming films? Vote in the poll below.

Which is the best Harry Potter book?

This was probably the closest poll I’ve ever had on this blog, which isn’t surprising. With a majority of only 30.77% the winner is The Prisoner of Azkaban. Also, Happy Birthday Harry!

POLL: Which Is The Best Harry Potter Book?

First, let me admit right now that I haven’t finished this series. Now that that’s out of the way I still want to know what do you think is the best book in the series. I’ve heard many mixed answers on this and now I want to know for real. Is there one Harry Potter book that stand above the rest? If I had to guess I think it would be The Goblet of Fire. Let’s see if I guess correctly.

Results of last week’s poll:

Do you judge a book by it’s cover?

With 66.67% the answer is, “Yes but I still read what it’s about before I buy.” I couldn’t agree more.

POLL: Do You Judge A Book By Its Cover?

I’m the type of person that needs to know what the book is about before I start reading it. I like to read the back or the flap and get a gist of what’s the book about. However, I know people that will pick a book solely because the cover looks interesting and that’s cool too. Plus, in general, I’ll bypass a book if I’m not pulled in by the cover right away. Working in publishing I’ve since learned there are art design teams specifically to make covers for this very reason, which I think is pretty cool.

So, does the cover really influence your book choice or does it not bother you at all? I’m pretty sure I know how this poll will go but who knows? Maybe I’ll be surprised.

 

Results of last week’s poll:

Do you reread books?

With an overwhelming majority of 90% the answer is a resounding yes and I’d have to agree. Happy rereading!

POLL: Do you reread books?

I really enjoy rereading some books. Especially if it’s been a long time since I read it and I don’t remember specifics about the book I love going back and reading it again. However, I know there are some people that are a once and done type of reader and that’s fine too.

So which are you. Only one good read or do you enjoy the occasionally reread? Vote in the poll and comment below whey you like rereading or not.

 

Results of last week’s poll:

YA or Adult Novels?

Although winning by only 10% more than just YA, both was the winner. I guess most of us just can’t choose.

POLL: YA or Adult Novels?

ya or adult

I’m a big fan of both young adult and adult novels. Even so, I often tend to lean towards young adult. Maybe it’s because I am one or maybe it’s because I just truly prefer them. Either way I love both types of novels but I want to know if you have a preference. Vote in the poll below and let me know in the comments why you’re more of a YA fan or a strictly adult novels person.

Results of last week’s poll:

How do you prefer to read?

With 60% of the votes, paperbacks were the winner. Paperbacks or the perfect books because you can fold them over and bend them any which way while still having the comfort of holding an actual book in your hands. It’s a win-win.

POLL: How do you prefer to read?

Hardcover, paperback, Kindle, Nook, iPad, audio. There’s so many ways to read a book these days it’s hard to keep track. Even so, people almost always have a preference. Some like to have an actual book, others prefer the connivence of e-books, and there are those who rather listen to their books. Where do you fall on the spectrum? Comment below why your way of reading is the best way or why you can’t choose just one way to read.

 

Results of last week’s poll:

Do you have to finish every book you read?

This one was close but with 60% most of you said you have to finish every book you read. I applaud those of you that do. I am not one of them.
