In the last 20 months I have been watching and assessing the trend in the adoption of e-readers. We've been subjected to a lot of hyperbole from Amazon about how sales of e-books have been increasing and it certainly seems that there is a marked adoption of e-readers in the crime fiction reading community.
I've summarised the poll results here: e-book poll has closed: interesting & significant results
For the next two weeks I am running another poll: Series or Stand-Alone?
Do you have a preference? Do you avoid reading a series? Have your say.
