Do you want my age group now or the age group I was in when I first started reading e-books? The answers will be different.

I'm 19. I'm not really surprised at the results so far, all my friends don't even read physical books, never mind ebooks.

I voted my age. I went with 30-40, since I recently turned forty and forty-one is the first year of my fifth decade. Works for me.

And what decade were you in before you turned 1? (an 11 year long decade 1?) Your approach only works for our calendar, since they skipped over year 0.

I'm in the 15-20 category (actually...I just noticed the 20-30 option. Might have been better to go with that...oh well). However, I must be one of the few. None of my friends have expressed an interest in ereaders and today was the first time I saw one at my university(a nook in case anyone was wondering). I'm switching schools at the for next semester, however, and the school is much bigger so we'll see how common ereaders are.

After the Edge of Night, and before the 4:30 movie (before Oprah that was what aired in the 90 minutes for the local 6:00 news) ... "Judgement at Nuremberg" was kinda boring for a little kid; "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane" was better.

Poll is flawed!

No choice for Portugal.

Portugal? What does Portugal have to do with a poll on age? I'm a little puzzled by that one. Can you elaborate?

You are not alone, perhaps an insider bailout joke?

The real flaw (as others have discovered) is the decimetrical confusion.

If one is 20, what do they choose? "15 to 20" or "20 to 30"?

Etc.

"Portugal" was just a reference for people who still had a humorous.

Faint memories, but I think at that time I was more Into "The New Zoo Review" I was at a young age heart stricken for Emmy Jo.

I thought 30-40 was for someone who was between 30 and 40 yrs old, so I voted in the 40-50 range since I turned 40 last birthday.
