June poll results

June Poll Results

Here are the results of the June poll:

Do you read excerpts from Diana Gabaldon's upcoming books?

  • 59.4% - Absolutely! I will gladly devour any excerpt I can get my eyeballs on.
  • 15.2% - No, I would rather wait and see those bits of the story in their proper context, when the book comes out.
  • 10.9% - I read the ones Diana posts on her web site and/or blog, but that's all.
  • 10.1% - I used to read them, but I don't anymore.
  • 0.7% - I read excerpts, but only for certain books.
  • 0.7% - I read excerpts, but only the shorter ones that are not posted as attachments.
  • 1.5% - What excerpts? Where can I find them?
  • 1.5% - Other
There were a total of 138 votes in this month's poll. Thanks to everyone who participated!

As usual, I didn't vote in the poll myself, but if I had, I would have gone with "I read excerpts, but only for certain books." I have been avoiding excerpts from ECHO for about a year and a half now, but I will gladly read excerpts from anything else. <g>

And if you are one of the people who chose the "What excerpts? Where can I find them?" option, look here.

New Poll for July

The July poll is about your favorite female characters from the books. There are so many strong-willed, self-confident, memorable women in these books, I thought it would be interesting to see what you think. Please take a moment to vote in the poll, and leave a comment, if you want to explain your choice.

My other vote is for the white sow, an alpha female to the max!
