The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice.
Check out the links for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Participants don't select their favorite, coolest or most intellectual books, they just use the one they are currently reading. This is the book I'm reading right now:
Book title: The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
I may have discovered a solution to the Wife Problem. As with many scientific breakthroughs, the answer was obvious in retrospect. But had it not been for a series of unscheduled events, it is unlikely I would have discovered it.Friday 56:
As I completed dinner preparations, Rosie set the table---not the conventional dining table in the living room, but a makeshift table on the balcony, created by taking a whiteboard from the kitchen wall and pacing it on top of two big plant pots, from which the dead plants had been removed. A white sheet from the linen cupboard had been added in the role of tablecloth. Silver cutlery--- a housewarming gift from my parents that had never been used --- and the decorative wine glasses were on the table. She was destroying my apartment!My thoughts: I've just started this popular book about a genetics professor who is socially awkward yet sets out on a scientific project to find a wife. My daughter read this book last year and recommended it and now both of my book clubs are reading it for March. That will be a nice chance for me to catch up on personal reading since I'll only have to read one book club selection this month. Oh no, I am starting to sound like Don Tillman, the awkward professor who wants his whole life to be scheduled and ordered.
