"Could a reader not realize they hadn’t read a female author in two years?"

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.
