*I don't know *what* books happened to get missed. And I'm not likely to go through my lists to find out.
**This note is for both books by men and women. I did repeat authors. And I tallied for each book I read, not for each author. So I didn't read books by 152 different women and 83 different men. A handful of books had multiple authors, so I counted each author. That's why this total doesn't match the number of books read.
