Back in 2006 I theorised that the Borders bookstore in Civic is set up to sell to women and not to men. Some of you foolishly poo-pooed me.
Yesterday, while trying to find my girlfriend in Borders amongst a crowd of other women who look unsettlingly like her (no rushing up from behind for a tickle attack in this heavily decoyed environment), I discovered conclusive proof of my theory.
In the section clearly marked as “Rugby” I struggled to find a single book on the sport.
There are books on Shane Warne, Ricky Ponting, Darren Lehman, Steve Waugh, Andrew Symonds, and lots of Wisden publications. Dan Carter has somehow snuck in amongst the cricketers, but he cuts a lonely figure in there.
