My name is Abi. I’m twenty-eight. And I have two thousand books.
About nine hundred of the books are Girls’ Own, and I decided some time ago that it was time to spread the love. Elinor Brent-Dyer has her own enthusiastic fan groups and Elsie Oxenham and one or two of the others aren’t doing so badly, but there’s not really a lot out there for those of us who are general fans of the whole genre.
This is where I come in, because, quite frankly, I love it. I’m not really entirely sure why, but I can read ten variations on new-girl-makes-good and still come back for more. Maybe I’ll write a post on it sometime. Anyway, this blog is where I’m going to write about the characters, the authors, the plots, the themes and the books themselves.
As for the rest of my life, I’ve just started working in a call centre. A fairly acceptable call centre, as they go, but still. I like to read, watch films, listen to folk music and talk about pointy things. I have a random obsession with bagpipes (but don’t worry; I refrain from foisting this on unsuspecting innocents) and am writing a novel or two.
