Love Is...

It's soon to be February. The month of Valentine, the month of love. But as great as romantic love is, there is nothing as wonderful as the love we have of our friends. Our chosen family, the people who choose us again and again, knowing our best and worst traits.

It seems a sign that the perfect book to celebrate friendship and the love we have for them will be released February 16, 2016. I give you Our new GGBC read:

From Amazon.com:
Leonard Nimoy and William Shatner first crossed paths as actors on the set of The Man from U.N.C.L.E.Little did they know that their next roles, in a new science fiction television series, would shape their lives in ways no one could have anticipated. In seventy-nine television episodes and six feature films, they grew to know each other more than most friends could ever imagine.
Over the course of half a century, Shatner and Nimoy saw each other through personal and professional highs and lows. In this powerfully emotional book, Shatner tells the story of a man who was his friend for five decades, recounting anecdotes and untold stories of their lives on and off set, as well as gathering stories from others who knew Nimoy well, to present a full picture of a rich life.
As much a biography of Nimoy as a story of their friendship, Leonard is a uniquely heartfelt book written by one legendary actor in celebration of another.

The Geek Girls Book Club is built on friendships, on connections that go beyond our families and partners, these people are a huge part of who shape us and make us who we are. Who we choose to be. I hope that you will read this and share it with your friends, and we will all remember how blessed we are to have people who love us, even when we make loving us hard.

The book, written by my forever crush William Shatner (@WilliamShatner) will be released on February 16, so get on your library waiting lists and pre-order your copies now. Because it is released later in the month, we are going to have this one be our February/March read to give everyone time to finish it.

So grab your geeky friends, read this book and keep it, and them, close. You are going to really enjoy this tale of friendship and adventure. We will discuss this one the last Saturday of March, so I will see you here, at our Goodreads group, on Twitter and Facebook (Links for all are in the sidebar). I'll be the one holding my Spock doll wearing my Captain Kirk robe with a tear in my eye.
