I have a new poll this week: Do you agree? Standalone=plot. Series=character
The poll is an extension of the results of last week's poll where I asked if readers avoided reading a book if it was part of a series. Overwhelmingly the participants didn't but there were some interesting comments about the differences between a series and a stand_alone, hence the poll.
