Which book title and subtitle would be more likely to entice you to buy the book? (Book is humor non-fiction, like those written by Dave Barry, Erma Bombeck, Mindy Kaling, Chelsea Handler, David Sedaris etc.)
This is a 2 option poll with 50 respondents targeting Reading frequency (1 3, 4+). A sample of responses:
- This sounds more productive and helpful in my life. I would definitely go for this title.
- I prefer this one because to me it is more humorus.
- I like this title better. It is creative and funny
- From the description, this one sounds funnier and more interesting so it'd entice me more.
- I feel choice B would be more enticing to read and is a funnier title.
This is a 4 option poll with 50 respondents targeting Reading frequency (1 3, 4+). A sample of responses:
- D and C is interesting and they catch your attention right away. I think D is a bit more exciting but, C is a good second. A is a bit confusing but it’s much better the B. B sounds boring and simple.
- "Kin" is my favorite, and I feel like this could be a very catchy title for the first book in a series.
- Wild Bond is descriptive enough where I know it will be about a boy and animal, but also poetic enough that it would spark a child’s imagination. I chose Kin second because it’s good to get kids learning that word. Almost Animal is a bit too silly and does not sound like a published book title.
- i think an 8-12 year old would be more curious about animals and bonds
- I like the word wild in the title as I think it would be appealing to the age range specified. Almost Animal is the weakest because it gives me no insight about the book at all.
This is a 1 option poll with 50 respondents targeting Reading frequency (1 3). A sample of responses:
- I feel like a book about simple investing or how to get started in the stock market would appeal to a large audience.
- I am interested in investing and tax topics.
- A finance book that focused on passive income. This is big for me because it is a great way to invest, and a great way to set up for the future.
- I would want to know about good investment strategies and how to manage my budget so that i come out ahead instead of living paycheck to paycheck. I would love to be able to save and invest in my future so that i don't spend my whole life working and not enjoying life.
- I don't know if this count under the topic, but a beginners guide to taxes would be amazing. A lot of info online, but it's hard to tell what is true and incorrect. Around this time of year, people are asking these questions a lot.
Besides COVID-19, what was the hardest thing you've had to go through in life? What beliefs / habits / activities helped you get through it?
This is a 1 option poll with 50 respondents targeting Reading frequency (1 3, 4+). A sample of responses:
- applying for job interviews, because i had to go through so many to find a job
- My sister died of leukemia after a bone marrow transplant where i donated my marrow. Time and belief in G-d kessens the pain but never erases it.
- The hardest thing i had to go through before covid was the passing away of some of my family members whom i loved. This was difficult because these people were role models in my life, and life without them was completely different than life with them.
- probably when a hurricane went through our area recently and lots of work to rebuild after
- Hating my job was the hardest thing I had to do and not being able to quit. My husband helped me through it.
This is a 3 option poll with 50 respondents targeting Reading frequency (4+). A sample of responses:
- The font lay out of option C is the best. It’s easiest to read it’s easiest understand and comprehend
- A is VERY unclear. C and B are equal, I just prefer the slightly larger font of C.
- I like the clearly lined but offset page of title on B best, It gives an unease that is intriguing. I like A least because it's not TOTALLY clear (though mostly) whether the title is Mark Home, and the Author's name might be McGinn Truths, though McGinn Truths is sort of a cool name for a writer, and might draw attention though prove difficult when trying to search on line, for this reason I would definitely avoid this, it's going to mess up searches at libraries and Amazon.
- Reading vertically then left to right feels unnatural and I actually read it wrong the first try despite the difference in font hue
- I like Option C the most. It has the most centered text, and the white font over the red font is easier to read than the red and white next to each other. I think Option C is most easiest to read with respect to color scheme, and aesthetically it's the most pleasant to look at because the font is centered so it's easy to read the top half and the lower half of the cover without additional stressors. Option B is also easier to read than option A. However, what makes option B my second favorite option is that the text is not centered. That gave me pause when I read the cover because I was trying to figure out the words, and when the words aren't centered it made me think initially that the book was askew or slightly sideways. So it wasn't as easy to read as option C. It's easier to read than option B because the white font is above the red font which makes the contrast easier to see and provides a greater degree of clarity. Option B was the least easy of the three options for me to read. It has to do with contrast and the location of the text on the cover. The way that the text is situated makes it somewhat unclear what the title of the book and the author of the book are. Initially when I read it I thought that Mark Home was the title and McGinn Truths was the author, but that didn't quite make much sense and so after an initial assessment I figured that the color of the text is what distinguished the two identifiers on the cover and so the author is the red font and the title is the white font. However, that took me much longer to discern than option C especially, because option C creates a clear and unambiguous delineation between the title and the author. Option B does as well. Option A the delineation wasn't as readily apparent and so that momentary confusion before I puzzled out the title and author did indeed make option A less easy to read for me. Consequently, I like option C the most as it was easiest to read, option B second most as it was second easiest to read and option A the least as option A was the most confusing to read. Starting with the red and transitioning to the white on the cover is also somewhat unclear because it doesn't center the title effectively. When I look at a book cover I look at the title first, and for option A the title is not what I first see but rather the first name of the author, and so the syntactic transition between words in terms of how the words are arranged on the cover is somewhat unclear. I think part of it has to do with how in Western literature words are written from left to right, such that when I start at the top left of the cover and move right my mind has to process what I'm seeing because the words aren't arranged in a manner that I'm most familiar with reading and so it gave me pause. That pause meant that it was not as easy to read, and since the question is about what cover is easiest to read option A was not easiest to read compared to the other two covers.
This is a 4 option poll with 100 respondents targeting Literary preference (Fiction), Reading frequency (1 3), and Amazon Prime membership (Yes). A sample of responses:
- I like the book cover in option D the best. The cover catches my attention and makes me interested to read more about this book. I feel a sense of tension and excitement from looking at the image.
- I would pick option "B". The book cover looks appealing and unique.
- I like the covers with the presence of a guy there. It makes it seem more tense. 3 is a little intriguing and 4 seems uncreative and something for kids
- I really love the cover in panel B. I think the blue works very well as opposed to the red. I think that there is a mystery theme here and this cover emphasizes it well.
- i would prefer option D because i like the graphics and layout of the information on the book cover feels thrilling just looking at the cover i would want to read the book just judging by the cover
This is a 5 option poll with 100 respondents targeting Literary preference (Non Fiction) and Reading frequency (1 3). A sample of responses:
- I like Option C as it stresses this is non fiction and it peaks my interest to find out more.
- Feels like a real underground story.
- I chose C because how true it seems to me.
- I think that the first saying is not attention getting in options d and c therefore it is more likely to get me to read it.
- i think option C and A give a bit more of a lead in to the overall tone of the book. injustice and innocence.
