Old Survey, New Survey

Results from the last survey: “What’s your favorite FRL feature?”

Book reviews: 3 9.7%
Blog reviews: 6 19.4%
Indepth reporting on issues ending in “gate”: 22 (71%)

This week I’m asking “How long before publishers stop publishing in paper?” I think it will happen, eventually, even though this is a week when I requested fifteen books by interlibrary loan, purchased six new books, and pondered and procrastinated about gleaning the pile.

Maybe the survey question is wish fulfillment. In theory with book purchases it’s “one comes in, one goes out.” Too often it’s “one comes in, now I will find a loophole to justify not getting rid of a book.” Someday we will move again, and then I’ll weed the shelves. Honest.
