Weekly Geek Week TWENTY TWO

For the who/what/where/when/etc, please visit Dewey here.

My first visit to a blog I had never visited before was Kristian and Rachel’s American Bibliophile.     (Rachel reads and writes and wears cool shades.   Kristian judges books by the cover but this works for her, so who am I to judge!)   However, I can’t tell – or I’m missing it?  – who is writing what posts?     Lots of stuff here, readings all over the genre maps and good short posts about books, reading, and whatever.   A great mix of stuff.

For my next visit, I chose to linger here because of the blog’s title;  I love words.    And I’m in love with the header:   Worducopia : I love fountain pens, too!   My favorite post was this one and it happens to be (at the time of this writing) the most recent.  go figure!    In good Geek-Spirit, I had to investigate further and find out if we have similar reading tastes…     We do and we don’t.  I couldn’t find anything we’ve both read, at least recently.    But I love her writing style and I’ll be back for more.     And she loves nonfiction.     This is an excellent post:   Memoirs.

Blondie Rocket over at Reading Comes From Writing has a great post that really highlights her reading style – I got a good glimpse what kind of reader she is before I ever read a review.   The one review that inspired me the most to add the book to my tbr was this one:   A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of A Boy Soldier. I like that she really mixes up genres – nonfiction, light mystery, recent releases, etc.

Nice to meet ya Everyone!   Happy Weekly Geek and Happy Halloween Week, too.

    Thanks for checking out and reporting on Worducopia! Now I’ve discovered yours in turn–a true find.

    You’re right that we’re not reading the same books but have similar taste, and I love that you did the Readathon during a Red Sox game party and only got a couple hundred pages read and had to take a break to pick up 73 screws for your husband. (We’re Cubs fans but my sister lives in MA & I would’ve liked to see the Red Sox in the World Series.) You’ve inspired me to actually try the Read-a-thon next time, instead of not participating because I won’t be able to Do It Right.

    Hey – I’m a Cubs fan, too! I put in a truly dismal effort for Read-A-Thon this time but now I can only improve. I only cheered at the June one, which is very fun, too.

    Nice work Care! I have been very lax and lazy in my Weekly Geeks participating of late. I am hoping to improve sometime soon.

    I have read ‘A long way gone’ too and i think it was one of the best books i read last year. You should certainly give it a try.

    and so I shall. It’s being added to the list.

    Sounds like you had a fun time checking out these bloggers. I did have a happy Halloween! Did you?

    Thanks Dewey! Sure, Halloween was fine. It’s not my favorite holiday, but it was a fine day all the same.
