Check my rhyme it’s Brontë Turner’s book blog time!
Since I was a nipper I have loved the written word
Note the photographic evidence here, I was a toddler nerd
When I was young, this was not an issue
Everyone clapped and said ‘It’s educational!
Better on the Blyton than sniffing glue
Perhaps she won’t steal cars if she is reading Camus’
But my oh my how times have changed
Now people look at me like I am deranged
Just cos I loiter in Waterstones sniffing the books
Reading while walking and getting bad looks
Then I joined Facebook and things got worse
Plagued my crew with essays about this and that verse
They said, ‘woman this obsession must be contained a bit
Facebook’s for cat videos, not this sh*t’
So my family and friends they staged an intervention
Told me to create a blog to avoid medication
So here it is, virtual pen to virtual paper
All about what I’m reading and other bookish capers
