February 2012 Debut of the Month.

This is such a funny, warm, heartfelt, touching and unforgettable novel and as a bloke I’m not even sure I’m the target reader at all! Set in 1999 when email was just emerging - follow the will-they-won’t-they romance between a glamorous office junior and painfully shy IT geek!

Attachments by Rainbow Rowell

It's 1999 and for the staff of one newspaper office, the internet is still a novelty. By day, two young women, Beth and Jennifer, spend their hours emailing each other, discussing in hilarious detail every aspect of their lives, from love troubles to family dramas. And by night, Lincoln, a shy, lonely IT guy spends his hours reading every exchange. At first their emails offer a welcome diversion, but as Lincoln unwittingly becomes drawn into their lives, the more he reads, the more he finds himself falling for one of them. By the time Lincoln realizes just how head-over-heels he really is, it's way too late to introduce himself. What would he say to her? 'Hi, I'm the guy who reads your e-mails - and also, I think I love you'. After a series of close encounters, Lincoln decides it's time to muster the courage to follow his heart ' and find out whether there really is such a thing as love before first-sight.


Attachments is such a fantastic book! It's funny and heart-warming, and just a beautiful, beautiful read * ONCE UPON A BOOKCASE * An original, quirky but enjoyable book with many likeable characters and a plot that keeps you guessing all the way through. -- Carl Difford * South Wales Argus *

About the Author

Rainbow Rowell

Rainbow Rowell writes about people who talk a lot. And people who feel like they’re screwing up. And people who fall in love. Fangirl is her second YA novel - the first, Eleanor & Park, spent six weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. Rainbow has also written about for adults - Attachments and Landline. When she’s not writing, Rainbow is reading comic books, planning Disney World trips and arguing about things that don’t really matter in the big scheme of things. She lives in Nebraska with her husband and two sons.
