Do you prefer books written by women or by men?

If the author is good enough, his/her gender becomes irrelevant. At that point I cannot tell a difference between a man's or woman's writing.
 
  99 votes, 46.9%

By women.
 
  49 votes, 23.2%

I do not think it matters much.
 
  36 votes, 17.1%

It depends on the genre.
 
  18 votes, 8.5%

There's no difference. So this question is a moot point.
 
  4 votes, 1.9%

It matters whether the protagonist is female or male, the writer's sex has little to do with anything.

PC#4. So...
Let's assume you're that top notch, sassy movie producer with all the right connections in Hollywood. Some rich, spoiled jackass throws a bunch of $$$ on you and asks to bring JR Ward's "Black Dagger Brotherhood" to the screen. You decide to focus on Lover Revealed, because, well... let's be honest: who could resist Butch? So you get all excited, right? RIGHT??!!! Admit it, what can be better than working with with this hunky film star? Working hard, working weekends, working long hours, working after hours... working HARD, working WEEKENDS, working LONG HOURS... Tell me WHAT could be better?! I mean, we are talking: tall, heavy duty hunk with broad shoulders and impressive guns. And together with that big body goes a deep voice and an attitude to spare. But all this cockiness and self-confidence fits him, somehow, because... Because God knows our meat pie's a looker in that rough, tough kind of way*... Wait!!! So which film star are we talking about? 'Cause I'm lost...
