Poll #845392 Questions unrelated to one another

(For my serious consideration.) If you were in the fiction section of the bookstore, or even the YA urban fantasy section specifically, which title would you be likelier to pick up?

Heaven Universal
The Angel of Death Valley

(Just because I'm curious.) How high do you set your thermostat for regular at-home hours?

60-61 F / 16 C
62-63 F / 17 C
64-65 F / 18 C
66-67 F / 19 C
68-69 F / 20 C
70-71 F / 21 C
72-73 F / 22 C
74-75 F / 23 C
76-77 F / 24 C
78-79 F / 26 C

Body type would have something to do with that last question, I'm sure; but I don't think it's as simple as "big people are warm; tiny people are cold." In fact, a lot of skinny people are skinny because they have metabolisms that burn like rocket fuel; therefore, they are comfortable at lower room temperatures than the average person. In addition, I'm betting it has to do with what you're used to. Those from toasty parts of California really can shiver and pile on sweaters when it's 62 outside. I have seen this personally. Meanwhile, Alaskans often wear shorts when it's 45. Again, personal witness.

I actually rather liked both titles, but "The Noun of Noun Noun" is just a structure I see so often that if I'm just scanning titles, I sometimes filter out. As for the thermostat--I don't think we even have it on yet, and it's been averaging in the 50's outside (thus my two layers of socks, two layers of shirts, and gloves without fingers that I'm constantly wearing). But when we DO turn it on, it'll be about 64, if tradition holds true.

I know--"Noun of Noun" is a structure I myself have picked on lately, so I'm reluctant to use it. At this rate I'll be finding something else entirely...but maybe I'll fall back on 'Heaven Universal.'
