I make no secret of it, I love a good book - there's nothing better than having a book you can't wait to get to each day, stealing moments when you can read...
...while you stir the dinner, waiting for the kids to get their shoes on, or stealing a page or two while you eat your lunch, and THE ROSIE PROJECT was one such book for me.

My friend then also mentioned Overdrive, and electronic catalogue of books that libraries make available to members.
I waited for two days and then got notification that it was available and had read and returned it before I would even have received it from the regular system. It is so quick and easy to use and I really don't know why libraries are not promoting it more, mine had never mentioned it to me...
So now I am onto my third Overdrive book and enjoying not having to wait so long to read popular new release titles.
Onto the book...
The Rosie Project is the story of Don, a University Associate Professor and, obviously, his quest to find a suitable life partner.
The character Don is a quirky and rather eccentric personality who would definitely be on the Autism Spectrum with his need for order and organisation including schedules for meals, shopping and life in general as well as his self-expressed social awkwardness.
If you enjoy the character Sheldon Cooper from the tv sitcom The Big Bang then you will love The Rosie Project as Don bears a number of similarities to Sheldon, but I feel he is far more lovable!
Are you an e-book reader?? Have you discovered Overdrive? Got any good reads to recommend to me??
