Hazy Dreams and Reflections

Do we have a dearth of woman writers? – It seems every other shelf in the library fiction section is overflowing with Woman authors. Every other novel seems to be written by women. Why do we even have to think that there is a deficiency? Then I found my answer here – The second shelf. It tells you exactly how the top creamy layer of Literary fiction reflects the status quo of gender disparity in all the other streams of life. Woman writers are there, but mostly deemed to be on the second shelf knowingly or unknowingly. Literature awards, renowned reading lists – the top is brimming with male authors with a very few mentions of noteworthy female writers.

Do not judge the book by its cover. Well, What about the author? Are we being a little judgmental about the Author’s gender as a reader? – Recently I was reading an article about the reasons why…

My Blurb Book – For review

Ever since I did that solo European Tour last year and collected a whole lot of photographs, I have had this urge to have a book printed with it as a memoir. Not a coffee table kind of thing, but something as a pat on my back (is that narcissistic ?) for the first step that I took, which is always the toughest one for me. That tour was a huge confidence booster for me and I will forever be grateful for all those who were there in that group because they made me feel at home and I really really enjoyed their company as much as I did those places. It was also the tour where I covered one of the 7 wonders of the world or rather one of the new 7 wonders of the world , the Roman Colosseum. Today, after so many discarded efforts, I finally completed that 20 page book with selected photographs for each place visited as part of that tour. I tried my hands at Book Wright tool from Blurb and got it done today. The link is given below. I am not planning to sell it, obviously, but am definitely planning to print it for my personal use. It would be of great help if you could review the same (all pages are shown in the preview) and let me know your view, comments or corrections (my English , especially my grammar isn’t that good). Somehow the font I used looks good when I see it in the software, but in the preview, unless it is viewed full screen, isn’t very clear. I might have to rethink about the font.
