Working title: Brainy Girl
Kendra, the hard-working owner of an independent bookstore is struggling to keep her shop afloat in an age when everyone is buying books online or downloading them electronically. She's an awkward bookworm who has spent her life so deeply invested in the lives of fictional characters, that she has forgotten to live her own. It's very sad.
Until one day, fate intervenes.
Colin, a handsome doctor enters her bookstore looking for a birthday gift for his demanding fiance. Kendra goes to retrieve a book for him on the top shelf and, due to her clumsy nature, drops an entire volume of hard-bound encyclopedias on her face.
She wakes up in a hospital with severe head trauma. Colin has operated on her because he is a surgeon, it turns out. He couldn't close her skull entirely because of the staggering amount of damage and now a portion of her brain is constantly exposed. Fortunately, it is the most beautiful brain he's ever seen. Colin realizes he never loved his fiance, and for the first time starts to understand that love isn't just about finding a girl with a pretty face, it's about pealing that face down and looking at what's behind it. Kendra also falls in love with him because he is handsome and successful and the movie says so. Everyone learns a valuable lesson about how special brains really are and also how dangerous books can be.
So that's it. I have a lot more like this but I wanted to gauge your interest first. I look forward to hearing from you.

You've got the wrong Katherine. This happens a lot to me. But I did work in a library once.
