I know you may enjoy books by both, but if you had to pick just one, which would it be?
I'll explain it later.
Edited to add: Please indicate "my own gender" or "the opposite gender" if you would. That's because, if you say something like "I like reading the males perspective" when your forum user name doesn't indicate if you are male or female doesn't tell me what I need to know.
By the way, there are no wrong answers and you're not being judged in any way.
