A poll for the ladies on reading

Please only participate in this poll if you self-identify as having a female 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.

Poll #1450250 Women reading books by men

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 men?

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

Mean: 56.76 Median: 55 Std. Dev 26.20
