Thanks to all who took last week’s poll. Since I’m a book reviewer/blogger, among other things, I wanted to see if I was far afield from what readers have before them. So now I can breathe easy: The votes were fairly evenly divided between
- Literary Fiction
- General Fiction by lesser or unknown writers
- Whodunits/Suspense genre books
The surprising thing here is that only one vote chose nonfiction. Admittedly, this wasn’t a wide-spectrum poll and with relatively few voters. But it seems to indicate a renewed interest in fiction, of all sorts.
This should encourage fiction writers out there.
