Today’s Booking Through Thursday:
All other things (writing quality, story, etc) being equal, which would you rather read?1. Something written by a man or a woman?
2. Something with a male or female protagonist?
3. Something funny or something tragic?
4. Something short or something long with many parts?
5. Something simple or something layered?
Tricky, this one. My statistics from last year (not yet shared but they will be once I have finished reviewing everything and got the stats all up to date!) will be shared but I suspect that my favourites would be along the lines of woman writing about woman with semi-tragic fortunes in layers, many-parted book.
(* Bel Canto has a male protagonist)
