Our Nantucket Bookworm this week is James Scheurell, eCare Project Director for Nantucket Cottage Hospital and owner of J Madison Consulting.
What are you reading right now? The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
Short synopsis: A brilliant professor that has trouble in social situations makes a plan, based in science, to find a wife. Throughout the process of eliminating candidates from his pool of potential wives he finds love in an unlikely place.
Short review: A heartwarming and hilarious book that gave insight into the daily social struggles of a geneticist. Reading through the interactions that the geeky Don Tillman has in his quest for a wife is filled with fun, wit, and charm and I enjoyed every page.

Favorite Book as A Child: This one is a tough call but My Side of the Mountain by Jean Craighead George captured all my adventuresome spirit as a child and made me want to go find a hollowed out tree to live in.
I also loved the Bobsey Twins (a book my mom read when she was a child); the LIttle House on the Prairie series and The Boxcar Children
