Read in November, 2009

Short story odes to geekdom interspersed with single page comics. Sometimes very funny, sometimes very tedious (this is coming from someone who does not identify as geek, but maybe geek-lite....my fav part of the book is the comic outlining the lunch room hierarchy of the various geek clans...I could sit at two of the tables (band geek and theater tech/drama club tables) but would have no place at the computer nerd clan nor among the role players/gamers..though I did have some friends over there.

Good for a few chortles....possibly more for nostalgic adult geeks than for teens? (Buffy fans...you know who you are. Adult women knitting Jayne Cobb's hat...you know who you are.)
