An old soul in a new city.
Hello, I am Mary, though my family call me by my middle name. I am an English and Ancient History grad taking the Library Technician program at Durham College. My obsession with the novel runs deep as I started reading Jane Austen when my classmates were obsessed with the Series of Unfortunate Events and Goosebumps (though I’ve read those as well). And although I appreciate Jane Austen as a novelist and have read a lot of her written works, Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights is most definitely my favourite. I have no idea where my obsession with Victorian romance and my new found appreciation for mystery novels of the same time period (mostly Wilkie Collins) arose since neither of my parents particularly enjoy reading or encouraged it when i was younger. All I know is even though I am not a technological wiz and would most definitely fit in better with Elizabeth Bennett and Jane Eyre when computers weren’t even a notion, I will persevere.
