Size Matters

LOL! I know what you're thinking, but that's not what I plan to write about. It's to do with a couple books I've read lately. Well at the least, two books I'm reading now. Yes. I'm too impatient to read one at a time.

Anyway, for some reason authors are describing their heroines as short and they're 5' 5" to 5' 7"!  Hello! The average height for a woman in the U.S. is 5' 4". So that's not short. Sure the males in some books are extremely tall but the heroes in the books are not more than 6' 3". Compared to his height, she is shorter, but she's not "short." Yes. There is a different.

Think about it.
