Back at the end of January, we asked you to fill out our Reader Survey. To make BookPage better for you, we wanted to learn about your reading preferences, hobbies and habits. To thank you for answering our questions, we promised to give away a lot of really great prizes.
Well . . . two months later, the results are in and the winners have been chosen (and contacted). Here are some results, at a glance. Keep reading to see a list of winners.
12,353: Number of people who completed the survey. (Wow!)
7: Percentage of our readers who live in Illinois (the highest of any state, followed by New York and Ohio).
74: Percentage of our readers who buy books for kids.
Mystery/thrillers: The type of book our readers most enjoy reading.
Book Clubs: The most popular column in BookPage.
