Books

Fot the past half an hour,I've been trying to upload images unto this, but today it is just not happening..Therefore I cannot blog about what I intended to, in the first place.

A bit like life I suppose--You plan something and life takes its own turns.You change and you cope.
One thing that never changes is the joy a good book gives. The internet is fantastic--it connects across cultures, shrinks the miles,bridges gaps and expands horizons.But at times, servers are down, there is no power or you dont get what you are looking for. There are viruses that can get your system down and all kinds of other complications.

Books are so simple.You curl up witha good book, and it never lets you down.
I love the internet but i simply LOVE my books!

And looks like a lot of people agree with me.

Books are the carriers of civilization. Without books, history is silent, literature dumb, science crippled, thought and speculation at a standstill.
--Barbara Tuchman

A room without books is like a body without a soul.
--Cicero

The greatest gift is a passion for reading. It is cheap, it consoles, it distracts, it excites, it gives you the knowledge of the world and experience of a wide kind. It is a moral illumination.
--Elizabeth Hardwick

Just the knowledge that a good book is awaiting one at the end of a long day makes that day happier
--Kathleen Norris

Good friends, good books and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.
--Mark Twain

  1. A good book to me is like the Wardrobe to Narnia...the deeper you walk into it..the more tangable the contents.

A hundred little flames--new novel from Preeti Shenoy.

Greetings from Birmingham. I type this with a stunning view of the boating canals in Birmingham.


 We had the cover launch of my new novel yesterday at Birmingham, as a part of the Birmingham Literature Festival.

The event was in association with DesiBlitz, which is an award winning web magazine, in UK  for British Asians.
They had carried alovely interview with me some days back. DO READ it.

The entire event of yesterday, was telecast live on Facebook. I have read from my new novel! :)

 I have also read from It's All In the Planets. If you watch the whole telecast, you will see how different the writing approach and the writing styles are in the two books.

I am grateful that the event was a roaring success and that people turned up in  large numbers.


Meanwhile at @LibraryofBham@preetishenoy signs many, many books after her event. #BLF17pic.twitter.com/Aw3ISbHA14 — Birmingham Lit Fest (@BhamLitFest) October 7, 2017


If you have missed the live telecast you can watch it on my author…

Are you guilty of this? #AHundredLittleFlames (post 4)

Hi there,
Hope you had a great Diwali!
For those who joined me late, I am doing a  hundred little blog posts to celebrate  my new book A Hundred Little Flames.

This means a new little blog post every day, till I reach a 100 :)
Today is day 4.

Sometimes, couples in love forget about everyone around them. They don't care what others think or feel, as they are so engrossed in each other, and their happiness. They also think that theirs is the greatest and the best love-story. They may not mean to do it. But they do so inadvertently.
Ayan finds it annoying.

Do you know any such couples? Has anyone you know acted that way?

Tell me in comments!
A new post tomorrow.
Love
Preeti
