Hey there.

I joined a few years ago but just really lurked so getting on board now!

I'm from Kilkenny in Ireland and am married with 2 little girls (who I hope will read and love the Chalet School one day).

I can't remember my first CS book, but have most of them now...no hard backs unfortunately. It was only lurking here that I actually realised that there was so much more in the HB and i've been missing out most of my life!!

I'm a secondary school teacher and I always wanted to be, so that's why I love school stories and will re-read them again and again. I'm reading Reunion at the moment.

Think that's all!

Hallo blanchgirl - it's super to meet you! How many of the HBs have you read? I didn't know the paperbacks were abridged until a few years ago, and although I was cross, it's also meant that I have lots of 'new' books to discover, since many of the unabridged titles read as almost entirely different books. It's like discovering new CS books!
