Book Riot is usually a pretty cool hangout for bookish beings. I almost always find something new to peruse, and I like that they support the Girls Write Now charity out of NY.  But this weekend’s posts were not all that girl-friendly. At least this one titled 15 Books Famous Authors Give Five Stars on Goodreads.

Sorry Johann Thorsson, but don’t you have any favorite authors that are women? Not one? I really like Gaiman too, but come on.

How about:
