This week's poll is a suggestion from our member achyif. Compared to your other reading intake, is manga proportionally more or less? For me, I tend to read novels much more than manga, especially since I own an Amazon Kindle Paperwhite.

You can submit poll ideas here (and try to keep them manga/anime-related)

First sunrise - votes: 386 (3.8%)

There were 10047 total votes.
The poll ended: January 12th 2013

Of course, the winner would be manga since we're a manga site. But after that, 2nd most popular is a bit of romance~

I put "about the same" because there is no option for "I listen to audbiobooks more than I read manga."

I used to read a ton of novels; now I listen to a lot of audiobooks and rarely read... I can't work/do chores/anything menial or repetitive without my audiobooks anymore.

I read way more novels than I do manga. I read for a hour or two every night to wind down, and I carry my kindle everywhere I go, so I always have my nose stuck in a book if I can. I read a lot of manga as well, but my first love will always be novels.

The pen is mightier than the sword...and considerably easier to write with.

About the same..I think
I read a lot of manga and novel,but content wise Novel and Light novel have a lot more content.
1 volume of novel normally cover from beginning to ending or ending an arc,if you think about it, we get more from Novel.I feel more sense of satisfaction reading Novel due to this. While manga will be...."I need the next one now!"

I chose about the same because I read everything. I love reading though novels are my favourite I do read mangas, magazines, newspapers and occasionally I'll read essays (which aren't as boring as they sound)

I'm currently reading much more novels, since I've kinda exhausted the supply of mangas which interest me. (over 200 series read)

I read 77 books and about 40 manga last year.

Which is not counting what I read on the computer.

I put "about the same." I'm a creative writing major, so I read a lot of student work as well as published literature for all my English classics. On my iBook app, I'm also always downloading free public domain lit!! smile wink grin (I'm a classics junkie!!) Plus, I read a lot of stories on Fictionpress and Wattpad, so those count, too. Still, I read a lot of manga. Not so much lately because I get into these FP-WP-MU love triangle-y phases. laugh

I put about the same, although I may read more non-manga stuff. If you include forums and news and tech blogs and the like.

I read more manga now, but I could never give up on my novels! biggrin
Actually sometimes I could say it's about the same, only more because it's easy to breeze through several manga volumes in a short amount of time.
Probably not as much when I'm busy with studies, but that's a given.

I put about the same. I mean, I am a student. Textbook and articles don't come in manga version although if they did, they'd be way more interesting.

At the moment, I'm reading more manga. My novel reading increases a lot over the summer though. I usually end up blasting 600+ pages books in a few days when I have nothing to do. But yeah, I'm in a manga mood at the moment so I've been reading more than usual recently.
