I counted some gender stats about 700 books I've read in recent years.

Of Finnish books 121 were written by woman assumed authors (by name) and 108 by man assumed authors; 44 books were undefined (mostly anthologies with multiple authors).

Of foreign books 135 were written by woman assumed authors, 269 by man assumed authors and 23 were undefined.

Quite interestingly it's easier to reach a gender balance on domestic books. Would be interesting to know if this holds in other countries too.

@Stoori That's really interesting! And your stats for foreign books tally with the industry trend.

I found a similar ratio in my own reading a while back.
