Random Cool Image: The Hardest Survey Question I Have Ever Faced

This morning I grabbed a free ebook I found on the ‘Free Fridays’ Nook blog called Red to Black, which sounded pretty good.

After completing the ‘purchase’, I was prompted to take a survey. I will usually take surveys for tech magazines or sites I like, so I said ‘yes’ and went ahead. I made it half-way down the first page before I was halted by the image above. Can you see what is wrong?

That’s right … there is no option for ‘book’ in the ‘what did you purchase’ question! And since I only included that question let me assure you – there was not a different question about books. This was IT …

I love Barnes & Noble, and my family love our Nooks. But really guys … if you can’t even get BOOKS on a survey you are feeding someone who just bought a book? Well, at least if I had bought a crock pot I would have been covered with ‘home & garden’!

Mobile Technology has played a major role in my life - I have used an electronic companion since the HP95LX more than 20 years ago, and have been a 'Laptop First' person since my Compaq LTE Lite 3/20 and Powerbook 170 back in 1991! As an avid gamer and gadget-junkie I was constantly asked for my opinions on new technology, which led to writing small blurbs ... and eventually becoming a reviewer many years ago. My family is my biggest priority in life, and they alternate between loving and tolerating my gaming and gadget hobbies ... but ultimately benefits from the addition of technology to our lives!
  • Since it was an ebook it could have been electronics …

    Point is – a BOOKSTORE with a survey that doesn’t have ‘BOOK’ as a top-level category is just absurd … and shows how scattered BN has become.
