Monthly Reader Survey

Each month, I ask the readers of my newsletter a question or two. Sometimes, my questions are random fun things that have nothing to do with books. Other queries are about reading and writing.

Join in the fun and answer this month's survey. The results will be shared in next month's newsletter and here on the website, so be sure you're subscribed.

    Greeting Trick-or-Treaters

    No, I’m not rushing the season. The results of this survey will be released with the next newsletter on October 6, just a few short weeks before Halloween. With that on my mind, I wondered how you greet trick-or-treaters? Based on my friends reactions, I’ve listed a few options, but feel free to select other and add your own.

    I love seeing them and greet them enthusiastically.I give them a treat, but can’t wait for it to end.I turn off the lights or leave the house for the night to avoid the little monsters.I don’t get trick-or-treaters.Other / Something else
