Geek is chic! That’s right, now is the time for all nerds to come together and revel in all things dorky. Because what is geekery, really? To us, being a geek is being outspokenly passionate about an interest, no matter what that interest may be: a certain TV show or video game, a funny animal, or a favorite book series. We’ve taken that to the next level with our special Gaming! Graphics! Geekdom! flyer—here’s what has us geeking out:
Grumpy Cat: A Grumpy Book: Grumpy Cat = the kindred spirit of anyone who’s ever had a case of the Mondays. Although Grumpy Cat’s un-enthusiasm might be seen as the antithesis of geekery (she’d never be excited about anything!), her devoted fan base is undeniably geek-tastic.
The Legend of Zelda: Looking for some old-school geekery in a cool new format? Check out this manga (that’s a Japanese-style graphic novel, for the uninitiated) about Link’s latest attempt to save the world!
Raina Telgemeier Pack: Can you geek out over a person? I hope so, because I am totally a Raina nerd. Funny family and friendship stories with amazing artwork and lots of heart—I. Am. Obsessed.
And it’s not just Reading Club staffers who are in a geek state of mind—check out what Gina, a Reading Club Teacher Advisor, had to say about geekery in her classroom:
book.box (bukboks) n. A cardboard receptacle, typically rectangular in shape
with lid, containing words, pictures, ideas and dreams, often
accompanied by excitement, anticipation and the love of reading.
