When I first came up with this poll, I didn’t expect many people to have way more 100 books. Boy, was I wrong!

416 readers voted in this poll. This is how they voted: 4% don’t have any eBooks at all, 9% have 31-50 eBooks, another 9% own 1-10 eBooks, 10% have 51-100 eBooks, 14% have 11-30 eBooks on their eReader, 20% (!) have over 1000 eBooks, and 33% have over 100 books but less than 1000. Impressive!

Comment Of The Week

When it comes to best comment, I always try to look for the one that was most useful. While there were many interesting and useful comments on last week’s poll, only one made me go in and change the actual poll, and for that, it deserves a reward!

This comment by Bruce G was both informative, and made me realize that the poll was sorely missing the “1000+” option, which I didn’t expect to be popular. As I mentioned above, I was completely wrong about this. So thank you Bruce for enlightening me, and for doing it so quickly after the poll went live. It truly made a difference!

Needs more levels on the poll!
1807 books on my e-reader as of this morning. (Granted, about 100 of them are craft patterns or magazines). And yes, I’ve read most of them, although some were in paper and I haven’t reread the ebooks yet. Probably about 1/2 of the books have been read or viewed as ebooks. Some are there for reference, some are “when I get around to it” (Like Churchill’s WWII set – have to be in a specific frame of mind to read that set).

Readers used: Ipad/Iphone – using Marvin for most of the e-books (it only does EPUB) , IBooks and Adobe for the PDFs. Dedicated reader: Kobo (since it has an expansion slot, I can fit everything on there).

Where bought: A lot of them are from the Gutenberg Project or ManyBooks.net. Purchases mostly via Amazon. Baen books for anything they sell (I’ll pay their higher prices to go direct to support the authors).

How Many Megapixels Does Your Phone’s Camera Have?

Love our t-shirts? The best comment in this poll will get one of our geeky t-shirts. That’s right, for free! So get commenting!

While the last decade was marked by an endless race to more pixels in our photos, things have calmed down in the past few years. People still look at megapixels (MP) when buying a phone, but aside from phones such as a Nokia Lumia 1020 Nokia Lumia 1020 Review and Giveaway Nokia Lumia 1020 Review and Giveaway Is it a phone? Is it a camera? No, it’s the Nokia Lumia 1020! Read More , you usually don’t see crazy numbers anymore. In fact, some manufacturers even go for much lower numbers than before, claiming that it’s other aspects of the camera technology that matter.

For this reason, we’re curious to see where things stand with your smartphones. When answering this poll, please give the number for your rear camera, as front-facing cameras are almost always lower quality. If you’re not sure how many MP your phone’s camera has, you can check on websites such as GSM Arena.


After voting, hit the comments and tell us which phone you own, and if you think having more MP actually makes a difference when it comes to phone cameras. Don’t forget, best comment wins a free t-shirt!
