December poll results



Happy New Year everyone!

Here are the results of the December poll:

What's your favorite way to read or listen to Diana Gabaldon's books?
  • 20.76% - Reading the books in hardcover.
  • 19.24% - Reading the books in paperback.
  • 14.18% - Reading on my Kindle, Nook, or other e-reader.
  • 12.91% - Listening to the audiobooks on my iPod or other portable device.
  • 7.59% - It depends on the situation, or what mood I'm in.
  • 4.81% - Listening to the CDs.
  • 3.04% - Reading on my iPhone, iPad, or similar device.
  • 14.94% - All of the above.
  • 0.25% - I haven't yet read any of Diana Gabaldon's books.
  • 2.28% - Other
There were 395 votes in this month's poll, and I think the results are very interesting. I was surprised by the number of people who voted "all of the above".

I didn't vote in the poll, but my favorite is listening to the audiobooks on my iPod.  (I'm going to put SCOTTISH PRISONER on it today, as a matter of fact.)

Thanks so much to everyone who participated!  Please take a moment to vote in the January poll, which is all about excerpts:  do you read them or avoid them?
    One other thing I wanted to share with you:



    The chart above shows the number of monthly visitors (in yellow) and page views (red and yellow combined) for Outlandish Observations in 2011.  You can see why I've been delighted with the results in the last few months!  This is a very positive trend, and I hope it continues through 2012.

    I haven't tried listening to DG's books since I tried the abridged versions years ago -- I think I'm going to follow your lead, Karen, and upload one to my ipod...after all, it's a new year...time to try "new" things! Theresa
