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
15(37.5%)
The Angel of Death Valley
25(62.5%)

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

60-61 F / 16 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.

There was no option in your poll for "How high would you keep the thermostat if your significant other did not insist on setting it at 70 F, causing actual icicles to form on the sleeping children", so I just assumed that was a given. :)

Icicles at 70? Hehe. Good thing you live down south--you'd freeze here in Seattle. And that's to say nothing of, oh, Minnesota. (Mind you, that's way too cold for me.) But I feel overheated at anything above 70, so, as I say, depends what you're used to...
