Sense & SensibilityI am a boy. Albeit an old fart version of same. But the relevant point of that statement is that I read boys' books.
Not in any macho way, or any sexist way, or even any misogynist way. It's just that in my culture boys tend to read boy author heroes, girls read girl writers they can identify with.
So today, at my age, I bought Sense & Sensibility. How about that gals? Cannot say why. Part of the reason is I'm moving house (and country) as some of you know already. So I have all my things - including my library - in storage. Allied to that I can't order more from amazon as my address could change at any day, depending on house sale outcomes. So today, at the local supermarket complex, where they have a quite good local bookshop with a small English language section, I thought I'd buy a cheap novel to tide me over.
This is it. I went straight for a girlie book. Don't know why. Just felt like it.
