I decide to create an Awards page to update as necessary. So far I have been given, and handed on, 10 awards by fellow bloggers. Should you feel like passing an award on to your fellow bloggers, consult the page, and by all means use one of the awards I've listed there.
Last week's poll asked What happened to the last book that you read?
- 30 people responded:
1 - returned it to the lender
7 - handed it on to someone else to read
6 - returned it to the library
0 - sold it at the used book shop
3 - advertised it on Book Mooch (or similar)
12 - put it back on my shelves11 - other
Even though 30 responded to the poll, it is an exceedingly small proportion of those who visited my blog last week (808) - just 3.7%. I'd love to bump that up a bit.
This week's poll (see right hand column) asks Do you ever listen to a novel?
