Yes! It makes me really want to read the next book.

How do you feel about images in a book (YA or Adult)?
I'm not crazy about images, but scroll work or another design is fine at the chapter heading.
I don't mind images if it's a single image per chapter.
I love images! I'm find with 2-10 per chapter!
Honestly, I think images should only be in children's books or graphic novels.
I'm fine with it if the image is at the end of each chapter.
I don't like images, scroll work, or designs in the books I read.

Young Adult books do not seem to have a clear cut line of how much is too much in terms of sexual acts. What is the most "sexual" characters should get in a YA book? (Target audience-teens and early 20's)
After sexual tension builds up intercourse is fine, but don't have the entire book filled with it.
Anything, as long as it doesn't border on erotica.
Intercourse if it is tasteful (Making love)
Making out from the waist up-hands only
No more than kissing-without the tongue
Just hand holding, hugs, etc.
Full body making out
Other-please comment below
Making out from the waist down-hands only

What would you do if bookstores became a thing of the past, and we completely switched to using ebook readers?
I'd throw a protest! I could never live in a world without REAL books!
I'd find ways to track down some paperbacks, and hardcovers, but would mostly use the ebook reader.
I don't think that will ever happen.
I would LOVE it! Ebooks are better, and they are more convenient.
Eh, there would always be libraries so I wouldn't care!
I'd stop reading.

If supernatural beings announced their existence to the world...how would the world react? (I asked this in another group once, and they liked it)
They would be persecuted
The world would view them as a disease, and would attempt to cure them with a vaccine...
The world would learn to live with them as equals.
The world would banish them to a remote place where they can do no harm...

Would you date someone who hated to read?
It wouldn't bother me as long as they understood MY love for books.
It would depend on how much I liked them.
No. They would have to pick a book once in a while or I wouldn't date them.
Yes. I would find something else in common with them.
No, someone who doesn't read doesn't deserve to share a meal with me...let alone a relationship!

If you were in someones house for the first time, and there were NO books in sight...what would you think of them?
It wouldn't bother me. Everyone is different.
I'd figure that their books were stacked away out of sight since I could not fathom not owning any books...
Ugh! No books, how could I even think of encouraging a friendship with someone who doesn't read!
I would try to introduce them to the world of literature, but would end the friendship if they wouldn't at least TRY to enjoy reading.
I prefer people who don't read. I like being unique.
