  • Which book would you buy?

    This is a 2 option poll with 50 respondents targeting Book Format (E Books). A sample of responses:

    • I like this one better, without the face.
    • The face makes it more compelling to me.
    • I chose B because I feel the cover captures my attention more than the other one.
    • This title flows better.
    • The bright blue eyes and subtle smile are visually intriguing. I want to know more about the scene-- who is watching what's happening? Why does one man have a gun pointed at another man? Why are they in the woods? The eyes make it seem like someone knows something, and I am interested to learn about their importance.
  • Browsing for a book, which blurb would you expand to read more? Why?

    This is a 2 option poll with 50 respondents targeting Book Format (E Books). A sample of responses:

    • I care more about a stories description than what other people thought of it.
    • B indicates that this might be a well-written book. I would like to know more about the actually story though, so in that way B is lacking. A is okay but just not attention grabbing.
    • I want to know what the story or catchline is, not what 4 awards are; especially if I've never even heard of any of the 4 awards.
    • the first sentence on A's description alreqady had me bored
    • I would rather read more about a book I have some idea about than one that just has a list of awards it has won.
  • Which ebook cover do you prefer ?

    This is a 2 option poll with 50 respondents targeting Book Format (E Books). A sample of responses:

    • The cover stands out more than A.
    • The large REFLUX stands out when you look at the cover.
    • I always prefer the book title to be big. It is usually the title that grabs me in. I also prefer how the "AN ANDY TEAGUE THRILLER" is a bit bigger at the bottom. I enjoy reading books that have sequels to them, and that will generally catch my attention faster. I'm not usually as concerned about the author. Unless it's an author I already know and read often, I am more interested in the title, and this one shows it much better.
    • I like the font and the texture used makes it seem more like a thriller.
    • I prefer the book title to be larger than the authors name. I also really like the font and colour of the title in option B, the little bit of texture makes it stand out to me. Attractive cover!
  • Hello! Which book TITLE is most appealing to you? This novel is part of an action-adventure fantasy series that takes place in 1930s America. The cover design is already set, though feedback is also welcome on that. Thank you!

    This is a 4 option poll with 50 respondents targeting Book Format (E Books). A sample of responses:

    • I like the short and concise titles because they are easy to remember and give just enought information, and I thought "supernaturals" was more appealing. The word "mystery" also makes me think of a genre I like.
    • Option B has the most intriguing title. Option A has a pretty cover and burdens sounds more attractive to me than supernaturals
    • Since this is part of an Action-Adventure series, option B doesn't really seem to fit as the title says "Mystery", which would not necessarily be an action adventure novel. D, Sixteen Supernaturals, seems more like there would be some action, going after 16 supernaturals. I have the same thoughts for A as I do for D, however, burdens doesn't seem as active or exciting as supernaturals. C sounds like it could be a mystery but could also be an adventure that happens while looking for Newton's Eye.
    • Option B is a title that gives more information about what the book is actually about to let someone know if they would be interested in it.
    • I went with the easier titles to read
  • Which book title makes you want to read this book?

    This is a 2 option poll with 50 respondents targeting Book Format (E Books). A sample of responses:

    • I like this because it let's the reader know that they have happened in the past few years compared to a memoir sounding like an autobiography.
    • memoirs makes me think it is coming straight from the person who experienced it.
    • Interesting - I believe both lead to a different reading - I like B as it could lead to imaginative adventures not many people have done - vs A which sound like following someone's footsteps
    • I personally like memoirs, so that phrasing would catch my attention
    • Tales sounds more interesting than Memoirs. Memoirs sounds like it's interesting for that person but not for everyone.
  • Which cover (and why) do you prefer for "Dead Center" the first book in the Gritty, Pulse-Pounding, Female Police Suspense Series set in San Francisco?

    This is a 2 option poll with 50 respondents targeting Book Format (E Books). A sample of responses:

    • A looks more gritty and mysterious. It fits the suspense genre better than B. B looks too clean and too polished.
    • I like the human element choice B has. It helps your imagination know what the character looks like.
    • I really like A. It's colorful and it really sets a mysterious mood. B is a bit too busy and has too much going on.
    • I think the expression on the face is very intriguing and I like it a lot
    • B has more color that attracts attention to the book. The difference in the design of the words allows the viewer to quickly see what the title is and who the author is. The bridge is easier to see in B and the target focused on the person highlights the title of the book.
  • Which cover do you prefer for a satirical novel about travel to France, Japan, and Israel?

    This is a 6 option poll with 50 respondents targeting Travel Frequency (Frequently, Occasionally), Political Affiliation (Independent/Other, Democrat), Book Format (E Books), and Age Range (55 64, 45 54, 35 44, 25 34, 18 24). A sample of responses:

    • I really like the more irreverent and comedic covers such as F and B the most of all of them.
    • If the author wants to really sell this as a humorous book, F is the best cover because it looks the most comical. B is the most cheerful and might make a good cover if the intent is to see how the cultures interplay. I liked A as well because it gave the impression that the author wants to pick the best aspects of all of these cultures and combine them. Of the remaining three, I picked D because it looked the least generic.
    • I chose F first because the novel is satirical, and so is the cover. It's funny, it makes you look at it, and you know it's not going to be a super serious book but something more enjoyable. None of the other choices offered this combination. I chose B second because it was uncluttered, to the point, easy to determine what the contents were about, and easy to see what cultures/countries the book would be about. I chose E for my third choice because I liked it better than all the ones left, at least it had good graphics and cultural representation, but nothing about it screamed satirical or tongue in cheek. I chose C as my fourth choice, but I didn't really like it. I just liked it a wee bit better than the other two that were left. boring and nothing made me want to see what was written inside.
    • I like option F the best, because it has playful characters in a perfectly satirical setting. The cartoon cover looks fun, and I could see myself reading the novel. Option B is next best for me, because the cover is clean, and it shows the different country flags. Option C is next on the list for me, since the black background has a playful contrast to the sights that you can see in the respective countries. Lastly, option A is good because it showcases all three countries in one flag. I like how the background is the sky with the flag waving in the front.
    • I think Option F makes the most sense for a satirical novel. I get that it's not a serious book and more for fun from just looking at the cover. I wouldn't be surprised when I started reading the book. I also like Option C because you get a sense of the 3 places it mentions because of the monuments that are significant to each of the 3 places. Option B and A were just Ok for me. They were too serious and don't convey satire as well.
  • Which cover do you prefer for a suspense book about a woman trying to rescue 2 young girls?

    This is a 2 option poll with 50 respondents targeting Book Format (E Books). A sample of responses:

    • with the name being "a silver moon" it makes sense to have a silver color
    • Both covers stick out, but the red in this one looks nice and really catches my eye.
    • I like the silver background better. The red on Option A make you think of blood and gor.
    • I think choice B has a much moodier cover that makes me consider buying it, and I think the color scheme overall indicates something that's higher quality. It shows better overall sense of graphic design, and fits the tone of the book based on the description above. The red on choice A seems too gaudy.
    • I like the green better, the red makes a sexual contattion
  • Which book title is more attractive? (all subtitles are same)

    This is a 4 option poll with 50 respondents targeting Book Format (E Books). A sample of responses:

    • D wins this comparison as it is straight forward and is worded much better than the other options for me
    • C sounds better to me, more interesting and approachable.
    • I like that "Luck" is in the title.
    • Again, D feels like an empty platitude. C makes the most sense to me.
    • It is more intriguing. I want to read or learn more about the unique title.
  • Based on the cover, which book would you rather buy?

    This is a 2 option poll with 50 respondents targeting Books Read Per Month (4+), Book Format (E Books), and Literary Preference (Fiction). A sample of responses:

    • I feel the painted art makes the item stand out a little bit, especially as the alternative appears to be kind of stock items for the cover and just doesn't look very good.
    • The painted illustration of the paranoid looking women seems like an entertaining thriller to read
    • Option B screams self-published book, which calls into question the quality of the writing and editing. I also tend to be turned off by a mention of an unknown series on the cover, particularly if I haven't read anything from the author previously. Option A is artsy and unique. It makes me curious about the book.
    • I think I like this style very much.
    • option B looks action packed, i love the use of technology in the picture. that covers hooks me from the start. i dont know what option A is about just by glancing at it. I dont get the impression it is a mystery it look more like historical romance would pass on it
