Rosie Project Is Like Reading a Romantic Comedy Movie

The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion is a humorous story of a man finding love. Don Tillman is a professor of genetics at an Australian university. He is extremely intelligent, quirky and probably has Asperger Syndrome. His only friends are Gene, also a professor and a philanderer, and Gene’s wife Claudia, a clinical psychologist. Don decides he wants a wife and gets advice from Gene and Claudia. He makes a questionnaire to weed out smokers and those who are chronically late. Then Rosie comes into his life. She smokes and is chronically late.

Spooktacular Reads

Are you a fan of thrills, chills, and things that go bump in the night? With Halloween right around the corner, it is the perfect time to check out some spooky reads to get you in the "spirit" of things? Here are a few of my suggested titles.

The Bond between Dogs and Humans

Right now we are celebrating Fond du Lac Reads with the book Thunder Dog by Michael Hingson. Mr. Hingson is a blind man who was in the World Trade Center on 9/11 and survived with the help of his guide dog Roselle. Dogs do not have to be service dogs or therapy dogs to have a big effect on our lives. If you are a dog lover, you know what I mean. Books that highlight the dog/human bond are on display at the Library in conjunction with Fond du Lac Reads.
