#readwomen2014: who will you read in 2014?

2014 has been declared as the year of reading women by the Guardian in an article. This article now went viral with the hashtag: #readwomen 2014, with more and more readers joining, and new notes and links appearing continually in the twitterstream. Here's the key line from the original article:
 "Female authors are marginalised by newspapers and literary journals, and their books are given 'girly' covers. Take action against this inequality by making sure the next book you read is by a woman."

Here are the links to the original article, the twitterstream and a tagboard with collected messages:
