Second Book Up!

I read May Sarton's The Small Room a little bit ago, and now I've posted my thoughts up on my blog. Let me just say that I found her a very powerful writer! It's awesome: so far, I've found two incredible women authors through this challenge. I used to always read more men than women; this is helping to balance that out!

I'm not sure what I'll read this month: I still have some Walter Scott, G.K. Chesterton, and Sarah Orne Jewett on my list. I guess it'll depend on what mood I'm in. :)

Do you think, in general, there is a difference between men and women authors, and if so, how would you characterise it? Do you think men tend to write for a more male audience, women more for other women? Or is the gender of author and reader irrelevant to the book? I only ask because you made the point that you've read more male than female authors and I wondered if that matters.

I don't know, with my own writing, whether I write more for women than for men.
