Book Club Meeting #5--The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion

Let's meet for brunch and discuss!

4.5 out of 5 stars based on over 4000 reviews on Amazon.com

The art of love is never a science: Meet Don Tillman, a brilliant yet socially inept professor of genetics, who’s decided it’s time he found a wife. In the orderly, evidence-based manner with which Don approaches all things, he designs the Wife Project to find his perfect partner: a sixteen-page, scientifically valid survey to filter out the drinkers, the smokers, the late arrivers.

Rosie Jarman possesses all these qualities. Don easily disqualifies her as a candidate for The Wife Project (even if she is “quite intelligent for a barmaid”). But Don is intrigued by Rosie’s own quest to identify her biological father. When an unlikely relationship develops as they collaborate on The Father Project, Don is forced to confront the spontaneous whirlwind that is Rosie―and the realization that, despite your best scientific efforts, you don’t find love, it finds you.

    Just a friendly reminder--keep your RSVP current for this Sunday's book brunch! Our reservations need an accurate number. Also, remember that 2 no shows results in your being removed from the group. See you all soon.

    Okay ladies! We have reservations for our book brunch at 10:30am at The Lobby. Please keep your RSVP current because this is a large event!

      For anyone who is curious, I've made two different reservations for tables of 12. There's no way 24 of us will be able to talk at one table. But there's also no way 24 of us are all going to show up! So if more than 12 of us show up, we'll discuss in smaller groups. But if 12 or less of us show up, we'll discuss in one group together. Just show up at 10:30am ready to eat. :)
