China Rican reading challenge. Unfortunately I've found without real effort most of the authors I read are white. And I really made no conscious effort. Oops. Maybe I'll make another, less strict, effort once summer is over. But for now I"m being lazy. Now onto the stats

I was originally going to say the only area I don't need to focus on is the male to female ratio. When I take it by the book I'm even. Then I realized 2 of the books, SuperFreakonomics and The Elements of F*cking Style, have 2 authors each. Way to throw me off guys-who-can't-write-a-book-by-themselves.
I'm also still catching up on reviews. I swear I'll have them done soon. Soon-ish. Maybe I'll even catch up to the book I'm reading.
Update: I finally got those other reviews posted and linked here.
