Wanted: Geeks


So we have has a blast with the Geek A Palooza in December, and are ready to fire up the engines of Ready Player One in January. One more thing we need in 2012... we need MORE GEEKS!

The mission of The Geek Girls Book Club is to be a place where anyone can read the books that are generally passed over by the mainstream book club. We have read so many amazing books in just 8 months. (Click the link on the side for the Goodreads group page and you can see all the titles.) My wish for 2012 is to really spread the word about the GGBC and be able to reach more people who would like to be in the company of such excellent geeks as yourselves.

So your mission, if you choose to accept it: SPREAD THE NERD WORD. That's it. Tell your friends, teachers, librarians, barbers, and whoever else would enjoy this group. Maybe we can make the world a bit brighter by making a safe place for all ages and creeds of geek to gather and talk about the things that really interest them. Maybe we can get people to like reading and maybe even themselves a bit in the process. You can print out a flyer and leave it at your local comic or book store or coffee shop (With their permission of course.) Word of mouth and posting on your blogs, Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr would be fantastic as well! Going to a Con? Feel free to spread the word there too. I'd love to see a GGBC tshirt in the crowd!

Thank you to all of you who are so passionate and just plain amazing about this group. I never dreamed that we would have over 600 members in several countries by now. It is all because of the drive you all have to make this happen, and I can never thank you enough. You all rock my geeky socks. Let's make 2012 The Year Of The Geek.

  2. I'm a very slow reader lately. Went through a spurt where I was able to get through a short book a week and now even that takes me a long time. I'll see if I can help you out on Good Reads.
