2014 Statistics Survey: A Bunch of Randomness

Posted December 29, 2014 by Andi in General, Statistics Survery / 12 Comments


As the calendar ticks down to that final day of the year, there is one thing you will always find and that is some sort of end of the year survey or questionnaire or bets of list. It is basically a given. Jamie of The Perpetual Page Turner does one (which this survey is sort of inspired by) and Top Ten Tuesday on The Broke and the Bookish do them. They are a fun way to see what everyone’s reading year was like. But what they don’t show you are the random stuff. The bizarre facts that you may notice or the unusual books you have read over a certain amount of pages.

Brittany of The Book Addict’s Guide and I were talking and decided it was time for a “Statistics Survey”. We don’t want to know how many followers you have or the number of views you get on a daily basis. We want to hear the quirky stuff. Together we have composed a fun survey (which we will both fill out at a later date) where you can tell us some of the more bizarre kind of reading trivia.

We have included a linky at the end where we hope you will take our little questionnaire and link back so everyone can see what interesting facts are out there about you.stats1

    Yay! I just finished mine! I may tweak it a little. Oh, and I borrowed your graphics. I hope you don’t mind. (I credited you for making them.)
