I'm a librarian who loves anime, manga, and reading a wide variety of genres.
I can't imagine going two years without reading a single book by a female author.
On a semi-related note, this reminded me of a conversation I had a few months ago, when a male relative of mine told me he actively avoids reading books by female authors, particularly recent releases. We don't always see eye-to-eye on certain subjects, but I had thought books were a fairly safe and fun topic. Now I'm trying to remember if we've ever talked about female authors.
