Poll results

Here are the results of a few recent Wizards Wireless polls:

Question: Are you a member of GoodReads?


1st place (14 votes)

  • Yes

2nd place (2 votes)

  • I've thought about it, but haven't joined yet.

3rd place (1 vote each)

  • I used to be, but I'm not anymore.
  • What's Goodreads?

4th place (0 votes)

  • No
Based on the results of this poll, and the huge reaction I got when I asked this question on the Kidlitosphere discussion group... I'd say that an awful lot of people use the GoodReads website. For the person who voted for "what's GoodReads?" see this post. I've been having a lot of fun seeing what friends and fellow bloggers are reading... although I can already see that the hardest part for me will be to keep my GoodReads reading list up to date.

Question: My favorite books written by Lucy Maud Montgomery are:


1st place (13 votes)

  • Anne of Green Gables

2nd place (7 votes)

  • The Blue Castle

3rd place (5 votes each)

  • Anne's House of Dreams
  • Rilla of Ingleside

4th place (4 votes each)

  • Anne of the Island
  • Anne of Windy Poplars
  • Emily of New Moon
  • I haven't read any of her books

5th place (3 votes each)

  • Anne of Ingleside
  • Anne of Avonlea

6th place (2 votes each)

  • Rainbow Valley
  • Emily Climbs
  • Emily's Quest
  • The Story Girl

7th place (1 vote each)

  • Chronicles of Avonlea
  • Mistress Pat
  • Kilmeny of the Orchard
  • Jane of Lantern Hill
  • A Tangled Web

8th place (0 votes each)

  • The Golden Road
  • Further Chronicles of Avonlea
  • Pat of Silver Bush

As I expected, Anne of Green Gables got the most votes in this poll. But I was delighted to see so much love for The Blue Castle, which is a far more obscure book. For my favorite L.M. Montgomery books, see this post.

Question: Does anyone read these poll result posts?
It's the best way I can think of the archive the results, but they always seem so lengthy to me. Should I keep writing them?

See the new poll in the sidebar about what sources you consult for book recommendations.


  1. Sure, I enjoy the recap on polls. Post away!

  2. I read the results, and I always vote. :)

  3. I was thinking about your love of Anne of Green Gables just yesterday...
    being overseas we watch BBC alot and I have fallen in love with a new series called "Lark Rise to Candleford." It reminds me of the anne of green gables stories. You might like it. I believe the series is based on the Lark Rise To Candleford trilogy by Flora Thompson. Just thought I would share if you wanted to check out a new series...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lark_Rise_to_Candleford.

    I like the polls too BTW.
