1.Do you tend to read more books written by one gender over the other? If so, which one? Men? Or women?
I would say 80% or more of the books I read are written by women.
2.Is this a deliberate choice? Or just something that kind of happened?
It's just the way it is. It'll vary from year to year depending on whether I find a new author and read lots by him or her. So far this year I've only read three books written by men. Last year the only book by a male author I read was The Da Vinci Code (1 book out of 40 - I keep a book record). A few years ago I had a spate of 'adventure reading' and read lots of Bernard Cornwell and Clive Cussler. It just happens!
3. And (without wanting to get too personal), is this your gender?
Yes, and I do think it makes a difference. I can't actually ever remember Martin reading anything written by a woman!
