hmm.. I'm unfamiliar with this. But what percentage of the hype is word-of-mouth anyway? Rowling wasn't known when she published her first book, but did her books subsequently get boosted up w/ lots of marketing?

the 'more than a third' question was asked after the first one; the students were read aloud the amendment. Of course the poll results may not be accurate, but the numbers are so large I don't think it would make much difference.
