  • Which synopsis would most interest you in this sci-fi book and why?

    This is a 2 option poll with 50 respondents targeting Literary Preference (Fiction). A sample of responses:

    • I like B because I feel like it says the same exact thing as A but without so many words. A feels like it has too many "filler" words in it just to bulk it up.
    • I like choice A since it is more in depth and detailed bout what is happening in this book. The reading of choice A was much more compelling and captivating than choice B which seems to skim over a lot of what choice A spoke of.
    • A seems more exciting and interesting to me even though it is longer.
    • Less words are employed in getting theme and story concept across. B does mention England as their destination which A does not.
    • Option B gives a more enticing description of the book. It adds a little mystery and intrigue, which would make me much more likely to pick up this book and read it.
  • Which book would you buy?

    This is a 2 option poll with 50 respondents targeting Literary Preference (Fiction). A sample of responses:

    • A is definitely more mysterious and fascinating. That is the one that would make me think I'm reading a really good book that I will find fascinating. The other has too much yellow for me and the spooky caped person is interesting, but the mirror on A makes the statement.
    • I like choice B because the picture of the person isn't as small and gets my attention quickly. Choice A looks nice, but it reminds me of my grandmother's murder mysteries and it looks outdated.
    • It better captures the title. A Bloodline's Echo implies it may be a story about a familial lineage. There's the literal crimson dashes that look like blood. There's also an expensive looking mirror that looks like it could be a unique family heirloom. The image is also much cleaner and more sharply defined.
    • I like option A because the picture of the woman looks real, unlike in option B. I also like the red and gray color scheme better. The overall picture in option A seems more mysterious than option B and that appeals to me more. The font used for the title in option A also seems like a better choice.
    • A gives more of a sense of mystery, suggesting a deeper plot. I also like the font much better.
  • Which cover do you prefer for a book about a science fantasy murder mystery?

    This is a 2 option poll with 50 respondents targeting Literary Preference (Fiction). A sample of responses:

    • The Option A book cover design has a nice background with images relating to fantasy and mystery The building in the background looks ancient and darker. It looks better for the subject of the book and would attract more attention than the option B
    • The cover looks more mystery with a look of an abandoned city. The zooming on it fit perfectly.
    • a the close-up imagery is more attractive and looks a little less industrial than the other option.
    • I love the concept of the bigger moon on B. It stands out way more than the other one
    • Option B makes me think it's about an oil rig. Option A looks more interesting for a setting.
  • Which book description sounds more appealing?

    This is a 2 option poll with 50 respondents targeting Literary Preference (Fiction). A sample of responses:

    • I preferred Option B since it wasn't as long, and it was also easier to understand. Option A is just too long, so I lost interest in reading it.
    • Option B- it's very clear and appealing from my view point, Nice one
    • I like A and how brief and segmented the sentences are. It is easier to read and kept my interest more than B. B is too long and tedious for a synopsis.
    • Choice a reads in a way that I would want to speak. Pauses in the intense spots. and long dramatic breaks makes it seem more intense. I like having the added and extra details when I am reading the description of a book because I want to really make sure it's a good fit for my taste and that I will throughly enjoy the book before I make the purchase this too leads me to lean to chosing choice a desription of the book.
    • Option A has so much energy! You instantly get a feel for each of the main characters, their situations, and their respective personalities. I love the hint of danger and intrigue in Option A--it's sublimely presented as this lurking danger beneath the surface. Option A just pulls you right into this world and makes you want to buy the book and start reading straight away. Option B, while solid, doesn't quite pack the punch that Option A does. Overall, Option A has me on pins and needles, wanting and needing to read this book.
  • Which design makes you want to buy the book?

    This is a 3 option poll with 50 respondents targeting Literary Preference (Fiction). A sample of responses:

    • The picture with the old barn door (C) is very appealing and eye-catching. Barn doors are verhh in right now and it would pop on the shelves. I picked (A) next because the white on that picture is way easier to read than the black type.
    • I liked the wooden background the most and it really made the title of the book stand out. The next two choices were very similar, but I thought the bold white font of book title stood out next best to me.
    • Option C has the most eye-catching design. The white text against the wooden background pops and I'm more likely to pick this book up over the others. The image on the other two is very dull and not vivid enough. I chose A over B because the white text is more noticeable, but I probably wouldn't pick up either of those books with that cover art.
    • I chose Option A because the cover is a little murky and blurred and implies mystery and suspense. The shadowy view of the house and trees together with the title in bright white jyst seems fitting. Option C seems clear and focused and there is something compelling about it. Option B us a little too blurry and pastel.
    • I think B looks quite bland and outdated and nothing stands out so B is 3. C is the best because it is modern, different and appealing so C is 1 and A is 2
  • Which book would you buy?

    This is a 2 option poll with 50 respondents targeting Literary Preference (Fiction). A sample of responses:

    • Simply because I was captivated by this book cover as soon as the page loaded. While it is pretty cool that choice B has death's-head hawkmoth, the cover was not as interesting. If this book really has terrifying tales, choice A gets me thinking: "Will there be a tale about a man without head that carries a balloon with him?".
    • Option "B: With the Death's Head Moth imagery and the saturated red cover kind of equating with danger makes the potential contents titillating, immediate and a siren call to horror fans. (Note: Choice A is also visually interesting with a feeling of Dali-esque surrealism that was a VERY close second.)
    • I think that the moths on B are more appealing and creepy especially for stories based on true events. The moths in B remind me of one of my favorite creepy fiction stories (The Silence of the Lambs) so I'd be drawn to this cover if I saw it on a shelf or an online listing.
    • I think A looks a lot scarier and stands out. B is very subtle, and if I were looking at a book on a shelf, I probably wouldn't even notice the skulls in the moths.
    • I would buy book option B, because the title of the book, the look of the cover of the book, and the images on the cover combined with the colors used, all match up to make it look like it's very interesting and potentially scary.
  • Which cover do you prefer for a book of literary fiction?

    This is a 2 option poll with 50 respondents targeting Religious Affiliation (Christianity) and Literary Preference (Fiction). A sample of responses:

    • The sky looks more realistic in B.
    • I like the red in the clouds
    • I chose B because it looks more like a sunrise than a sunset, as in A. The sunrise in A seems more inspirational and hopeful -- getting ready for something new. The sunset in B is a little less hopeful, like the end of something. So I think the sunrise in A fits more with the title and the theme of the book.
    • I don't really see a difference between the two, so either would work
    • I think they're both good, but I think B is a little better because the colors in the sky are a bit more subtle and lighter and I like that it doesn't have the red in the corner like A.
  • Which book title is catchier?

    This is a 3 option poll with 50 respondents targeting Literary Preference (Fiction). A sample of responses:

    • My first choice is Option B because it makes me curious on what the revolution is about and why is it the fifth one. My second choice is Option C, it sounds very intriguing. I would want to know more about it.
    • I went by what tires i liked best
    • Fifth revolution sounds like that movie with bruce willis and nerual night sounds so basic
    • I ranked the potential book titles that I found the most curious. I think "The Neural Night" sounds like a very intriguing novel.
    • I just thought that the Fifth Revolution could be interesting by itself and allows it to cover a number of different topics. To this end the book cover art would be important to sell readers on the book. I was intrigued at what a "near life" experience was and in comparison thought that "neural" night was close to "neutral" night and if someone was glancing quickly they might dismiss that option.
  • Based on the cover, which book would you rather buy?

    This is a 2 option poll with 50 respondents targeting Religious Affiliation (Christianity) and Literary Preference (Non Fiction). A sample of responses:

    • A is much more noticeable. It catches the eye.
    • This cover looks very calm and peaceful. It looks like a location which you could be at peace and connect with God.
    • The contrast in colors is really attractive making option B much more appealing to me.
    • I chose image a because it looks thrilling, mysterious and invokes wonder.
    • Not everyone likes children
  • Which Comedy Travel Adventure book title would make you want to buy the book if you saw it on an Amazon Travel Humor book sales page?

    This is a 4 option poll with 50 respondents targeting Literary Preference (Non Fiction). A sample of responses:

    • the first two are better to me. Not fond of "idiot" in the title.
    • "Half man Half idiot" is funny and memorable enough to stand out.
    • I ranked them in order of what sounds like be the most descriptive and funniest and most humorous title to the least.
    • I'm looking for a book written by an author with a unique perspective. "Midlife" suggests this the most. "Half Man Half Idiot" is at least a funny title, so it gets second place. The other two seem least interesting.
    • Opton C was the least offensive title for me and I would buy that one above all else. Option B was a rather vague title for me. Option D and A I did not particularly like because it has the word Idiot in it and I do not feel any book title humorous or otherwise should use the word idiot in it. It is too condescending.
