I read fewer books than usual this month, partly because of a couple of midway abandonments (not a usual practice of mine, but in both these instances I think justified) and partly because of other commitments.
Earlier in the year I was making a policy of reading only works by female writers; I’ve been progressively relaxing that rule, so that this past month there are just six out of ten books by women. This percentage is likely to drop yet again over the next few months, because most of the yummy ARCs I picked up at BookExpo are by men. Things might have been a bit different had it not been for an odd encounter at the MWA stand . . .
