If you’ve been following our roadshow videos, you may have noticed our poll asking which songs and books would be the first to occupy your new iPods and Kindles, should you be among the lucky winners at our WestlawNext preview breakfasts.
The results are in, and our (completely and utterly unscientific) survey gave us these insights into your artistic tastes:
- You are true children of the ‘80s, still under the sway of the biggest pop stars of that era, including Michael Jackson, Cyndi Lauper, Prince, and…ahem…Huey Lewis and the News.
- You like your books with a hint of law. Someone named To Kill a Mockingbird – whose protagonist, Atticus Finch, is an inspiration to lawyers everywhere – to the top spot on their Kindle reading list. Others would cram their Kindles with such weighty tomes as the U.S. Constitution and the complete works of Shakespeare – who, despite his infamous “kill all the lawyers” line in Henry VI, may have been trained as a lawyer himself.
- You like the fun stuff, too. Popular nonfiction, science fiction, and even the occasional Terry Goodkind fantasy novel would all make the first cut on many of your Kindles. (Not a peep about John Grisham, though.)
Thanks to everyone who participated in our (completely and utterly unscientific) survey! We really enjoyed your responses.
