Kerouac favorite book survey results update #2
Now that we have a whopping 13 responses, here is the breakdown from my survey asking respondents to pick their favorite Kerouac book from a list:
On the Road 38.5%
Visions of Cody 23.1%
The Dharma Bums 15.4%
Dr. Sax 7.7%
Desolation Angels 7.7%
The Subterraneans 7.7%
There's a lot wrong with this survey. Too many choices for one item. Not a big enough response. No restriction on voting multiple times. No way to tell if a respondent had actually read all the choices and thus made an educated choice (versus, for example, picking the one book they had read).
Consequently, one cannot put any stock in the results, despite them looking pretty much as expected. But the point was fun (see original post), after all, and not science.
If a few more votes drift in, I'll provide another update.
