Thank you to everybody, who voted on my poll last week.
I was rather surprised by the results. Out of the 11 people who responded only 2 people said they preferred e-books to a traditional paperback or hardback book. That’s only 18%, a lot lower than I expected.
I thought the poll would be fairly even, as the way of books is progressing further and further down the e-book route.
It was also, rather nice though to see that people still appreciate physically holding a book in their hands. I personally love the look, feel and smell of a new book! However, I like the fact I can carry a small device around with me and have hundreds of books with me at any time, sure saves space in a suitcase! 🙂
My motives for running the poll were somewhat biased. I was interested in the results not only for curiosity reasons, but also because within the next few months I am planning on self-publishing my own book and I was intrigued to learn which formats people preferred, to indentify which format to use first for submitting my work.
Anyone else surprised by the results?
