Real women read “Boy Fiction”

The NY Times review of Games of Thrones said “I can honestly say that I have never met a single woman who has stood up in indignation at her book club and refused to read the latest from Lorrie Moore unless everyone agreed to “The Hobbit” first. “Game of Thrones” is boy fiction patronizingly turned out to reach the population’s other half.”

In response I present Real Women read “boy Fiction”


Rumielf and her well worn copy of The Hobbit.

Many articles on the review.
New York Times insults female readers, they write back..

Nerdy Bird, Newsrama and many others reply to NY Times review saying Fantasy is Boy’s fiction.
