2016 book census

OK, so that's 2016's book reviews in the bag. Let's take the count:

  • 25 books by women (not counting ones I didn't finish).
  • 9 books by men.
  • 9 GNs by women.
  • 2 GNs (or large webcomics) by men.
  • 4 GNs by mixed-gender teams.

Huh, whaddaya know.

The next frontier is making that count a bit more multi-racial, because damn, this year's was white. I'm not going to break it down in detail because honestly it's just a lot more difficult to pin every author's identity down that way (and I've messed it up in the past), but really there were only two or three authors of color in there, which isn't enough. So I'll keep an eye on that this year.
