Reading Habits Survey Results

Graph--Books Per Month This survey has been a great success so far and surpassed my expectations on the very first day. Thanks to everyone! And, please, if you haven’t already taken it, do so now. Just because I’m sharing the results and announcing a giveaway winners (SURPRISE!) doesn’t mean the survey is closed.

So, here are some of the basics of the survey results.

13 to 17 year olds have a tiny (very tiny) edge over the 18 to 21 year olds. 39% to 38%. Girls have the vast majority, which doesn’t really surprise me. Girls have 83% against the boys’ 17%.

Homeschoolers comprise 88% of the survey compared to Public Schooler’s 10% and Private Schooler’s 1%.

You all read an average of 5.1 books a month in a wide variety of genres. Most of you enjoy several different genres, but fantasy and historical fiction are overwhelmingly the most frequently read genres. The same concept is true for the age groups you read in. Most of you read in several different age groups, but primarily read young adult or adult books. 84% of you are more likely to by hard copy books than e-books and predominately get your reading material from the library.

Thank You, everyone!

And now what you’re really waiting for. ;) The giveaway. I decided to giveaway two books instead of one because of how many people entered. There are three books to chose from and I’ll give them to the winners on a first come, first serve basis. The two winners are.

I’ll be emailing both of you to ask for your mailing address and which book you would like to win. Obviously if you would like the kindle copy of Supervillains of the Day I won’t need your mailing address. ;)

Thanks to all who participated. If you would like to see the more detailed results, I would love for you to join The Reading Habits Survey “Team”. Follow the link to read the details.
