Although a much smaller portion of the population used the technology, text messaging has been around since the 1990s. What is truly remarkable is that the author of the book 'Text-Me-Up' has managed to save every line she's been sent since 1999.

After 12 years of dialogue between Tracey Moberly and her friends and family, the British woman has logged her extensive collection of back-and-forths in a new book. It follows three primary narratives that offer insight into the life of the author, communicated through snippets of information and supported by written contributions from some of the main characters. Albeit an unusual structure for the compilation of an autobiography, the 'Text-Me-Up' book marks a new, exciting and contemporary genre to pop culture literature.
