A poll for the gents on reading

Please only participate in this poll if you self-identify as having a male gender.
I know it's hard to remember what-all you've read recently, but please try.

UPDATE: for anthologies, please count them as the gender of the majority of the authors.
FURTHER UPDATE: Please don't eliminate books from reporting in this poll based on their topic or genre, then comment afterward to tell me how the stats would be different if you hadn't done that. The poll is not intended to be aimed only at fiction, or SF - the question at the end is an add-on. The goal of the poll is to survey the genders of the authors of ANY BOOKS you read in the past 2 months.


Poll #1450130 Men reading books by women

How many books can you specifically recall reading in the past two months?

Of those books from the last 2 months, how many were by women?

Do the math: roughly what percent of the books you read in the past 2 months were by women?

Mean: 39.33 Median: 40 Std. Dev 32.14
