rotto book list

Our Rotto book list is at an advanced stage. Not on here is 'Mental Floss Presents Condensed Knowledge: A Deliciously Irreverent Guide to Feeling Smart Again'. Thanks to Amazon Online Reader we see the book claims the first three keepers of the Wadjemup lighthouse all killed themselves.

"The famous not only for being the first rotating beam lighhouse on that continent but also because its first three keepers all committed suicide!" Love that jaunty excalamtion mark. This was supposedly because of the pool of mercury that supported the lens. Could be true?

Alas, Rottnest Romance is not on here. We guess it's being published, gradually, but it hasn't been published in full so far. Another thrilling 500 words soon.
