**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 149 different women and 69 different men. A handful of books had multiple authors, so I counted each author. And a few books didn't list an author at all. That's why this total doesn't match the number of books read.
