Announcing Polls!

Posted on: March 6, 2011

It’s time to add more interactive features to my blog! You can always Recommend Books, vote LIKE on a post, or rate a review. Now you can also respond to polls. On the right, I have posted my first poll to find about more about the ages of YOU, my readers. Over subsequent weeks, I will post other polls about reader demographics.

That’s not all I have planned! Over the upcoming months, I will start writing articles (not just book reviews) on topics related to books for young people. There are so many subjects to explore such as favorite or not-so-favorite books, clichés such as missing parents, or lessons learned and life-changing books.  In some of these articles I will include polls.

Stay tuned and visit often to see the new changes! Together, we can make Allison’s Book Bag an online community of readers.

Very cool, Allison! This is a very interactive and awesome idea! Let me know how it works!


Most votes so far seem to have come from my family and from Zoetrope members. Other readers seem to reach my reviews through searches and so probably never see the front page. At least a few votes though seem to have come from outsiders. Moreover, whether due to the poll or due to my posting links to my reviews at Book Blogs, my March hits have surpassed all other months.

Summer Reviews

Books can take connect us with strangers, take us to unique places, and introduce us to new ideas. They can also offer hope in a chaotic world. And so I must share what I read!

Each week, I’ll introduce you to religious books, Advanced Reader Copies, animal books, or diversity books. Some I’ll review as singles and others as part of round-ups. Just ahead, there will be reviews of:

  • Joni: The unforgettable story of a young woman’s struggle against quadriplegia & depression by Joni Eareckson
  • The True Story of the World’s Most Beloved Animal Sanctuary by Samantha Glen
  • Brothers in hope : the story of the Lost Boys of Sudan–refugees by Mary Williams
  • The Inner Life of Cats by Thomas McNamee
