Survey status

It's been several months since the book blogger survey opened. What was meant to last a month ended up getting delayed due to several technical difficulties and a few personal complications. However, in this time just under 300 book bloggers kindly filled out this little form. To all participants - thank you.

But all good things must end (especially ones that were meant to go a long time ago). As of today, the book blogger survey has closed. And, if I may say so myself, it was an astounding success. Obviously we'll know more once the actual numbers are in, but so far I can say that we're going to learn some interesting things about this book-obsessed world of ours.

There are many (many) ways to look at these numbers and I hope to analyze them from every possible direction. So I apologize for what's about to happen, because it's going to take some more time. However, this time I will post results along the way - first, the dry numbers, then delving deeper into the stats (though, again, I know very little of actual statistics). With time, I hope a fascinating tapestry of the book blogging world will emerge.

These statistics are for the book blogging community as a whole and therefore passing the message and statistics along is very much encouraged. Feel free to contact me (the name of this blog at gmail) with any questions, comments, complaints, etc. Once again, a most sincere thank you to all participants. This would have been impossible without all of you.

Now the fun part begins.
