Taking a Poll...

My stacks of reading material keep getting ever higher, even though I've met my goal of a review a day.

So, here's my question...

...would you be okay with more "Sneak Peeks", unofficial reviews with no endorsements or ratings, but letting you know what is out there in the world of Christian publishing?

...or do you want my stamp of approval, my official bookmark rating before you go out and buy?

Vote now...so I know which direction to take. If we do the "Sneak Peeks" you'll get a LOT more blogging from me!

Leave a comment with your vote...

Happy Reading!

I enjoy both the reviews and the sneak peeks. Decisions on what to read or buy are often based partialy on input from friends and other readers I know share similar tastes or pet peeves about books so the sneak peeks might encourage me to check out a book further but probably wouldn't be an immediate got to have this reaction.

I like your reviews. The sneak peaks do nothing for me. I tour some of the same books you do but a lot of your reviews I have not read the book yet. They do help me figure out what I might like to read. :)

Hi Deena! I'm hoping you are feeling better today. Been praying for you! My personal preference is for reviews rather than sneak peeks, because I can find similar peeks anywhere. But I understand time constraints and if you went to the sneak peeks it certainly wouldn't stop me from coming around. :-)

Reviews will help me decide what to read more than sneak peeks. Although, if it's a popular author (for example, Susan May Warren) a sneak peek would be enough to interest me.
Also, when you review a book I've read I'm very interested if our opinions are similar. (Still waiting to see what you say about Death of a Six-Foot Teddy Bear. Hmm..)
Take care. Do you really read a book a day? Do you speed read?

And, yes, I do read a book per day...otherwise, I wouldn't have said I did:-)

Sorry noney, reviews for me too. Sneak Peaks are not enough and are the "promo" for the book, I need real live feedback!
Feel better okay!

I prefer reviews, too. I'd rather hear what you thought about a book. I can see what's available in Christian Publishing by just perusing Christianbook.com or one of the multitudes of catalogs they send me. It's the personal touch I come here for.
