The 2011 Christian Readers Survey

Christian Readers SurveyIn May of last year I created a Christian Readers survey. This was an attempt to answer some questions I had been asking myself about where we buy our books and why we buy them there. I started with the question, “Why do people shop at one e-commerce store and not another” and went from there. The results, based on over 2200 responses, were very interesting, not just to me, but to you (judging by the comments I received) and to Christian booksellers and publishers. (You can see last year’s results right here).

Now that a year has elapsed, I thought the time was right to do another survey. This one is the same, but different. I improved upon last year’s questions while swapping a few others in and out. And now I’d be grateful if you’d take just a few moments to fill it out. There are just 20 questions and I can’t imagine that it would take you more than 5 minutes to complete. Thanks in advance for your participation!

I promise to share the results with you when all is said and done…

    A Difference-Making Ministry for Any Christian

    The experience of preaching is very different from the front than from the back, when facing the congregation than when facing the preacher. The congregation faces one man who is doing his utmost to be engaging, to hold their attention, and to apply truths that will impact their hearts and transform their lives.
