A Note From

I recieved a email from someone at and she wanted me to share this with you:

I hope this note finds you well. I work with Anna Jarzab and Nicole Bruce and am writing about the 2009 Reader Survey. The goal of the survey is to identify trends and topics that are of interest to readers of young adult literature, both teens and adults. Results will be shared with the media, publishers, authors, booksellers, librarians and educators in September 2009.

In addition to questions about, a website from The Book Report Network, the survey addresses:

-How often they buy books and where they shop
-How often they visit the library and/or take out books
-What kinds of books they are interested in reading
-Who and what influence their reading selections
-How they feel about required summer reading
-What they think about eBooks and digital reading devices
-What their other media habits are

The survey can be found at

We hope you will mention the survey on your site and encourage all of the teens you know --- and anyone else who loves young adult books or works with teens --- to take the survey.

We estimate that the survey will take about 15 minutes to complete. As a token of their appreciation for filling it out, respondents from the U.S. and Canada will be eligible to enter a random drawing to receive a copy of one of 27 titles, which are being provided by publishers. There will be 775 winners selected. See the full list of 27 titles at:

The survey will close on August 31st so please visit to answer the survey now!
