Thank you to everyone who filled out the survey last week. Note: it’s still open if anyone else wants to send in feedback. It will be interesting to look back to see how this changes and grows.
From the people who filled it out so far, mystery & crime was the top genre.
Iris Johansen, Patricia Cornwell, David Baldacci, Tami Hoag, Stephen King, Barbara Kingsolver, Adriana Trigiani, Sue Grafton, Margaret Maron, Tom Hardy were some of your favorite authors. Many more were listed.
Favorite books included; anything by Winston Churchill, “The Grapes of Wrath,” Even Duncan series by Iris Johansen, “The Prodigal Summer” by Barbara Kingsolver, “Secret Life of Bees,” by Sue M. Kidd, and the Bible. Plus many more.
The biggest thing I learned from the survey is that you would like to see more book reviews. Even though you have your favorite genres, you were open to see reviews from a wide range of books from old to new, from fiction to nonfiction. So that is my goal. Along with the reviews printed in The Roanoke Times’ Sunday books page, I’ll have more reviews running on just the blog. Look for those coming soon.
