“Best Of” Reader’s Poll!


Dear Cherished Readers:

It’s that time of year again: the end. Which can only mean it’s time for all the “best of the year lists.” Best books, best movies, best albums, best hockey goals, best startups, best advice . . . There are a lot of “best of” lists!

Did you ever wonder who compiles these lists? Who gets to decide what’s the best? It’s a subjective business, ripe for misguided and biased opinions. That’s why this year, instead of me telling you what’s popular and best on bydavidklein.com, I decided to ask you, my loyal readers, to vote on your favorite blog posts in various categories.

I want to thank all of you who took the time out of your busy schedules to participate in my reader’s poll. And I wish you all the best in 2023 and hope you continue to be a regular reader of this blog. You’re all “the best of” in my eyes.

Here are the results of the poll:

Best Moody Reflection
Best Cheery Reflection
Best Advice – Given or Gotten
Best Novel Published
Best Original Work of Short Fiction
Best Unauthorized Blending of Fact and Fiction
Best Photo
Dawn, just outside my window.

Runner Up:

  • Facebook at its Finest. Sometimes the rabbit hole is a rewarding adventure and you come across a gem from JD Salinger.

Part II: Reviews

Throughout the year, I post reviews of some of the stuff I read and watch.
