I use the term “nerd” in here a lot, and my Commandments post proclaimed me a “book nerd”. But what exactly is a nerd? And how does it differ from geeks, another popular term?
I think I’m both nerd and geek- a neek, if you will, because I don’t like the term gerd. It sounds weird.
But when I say “book nerd,” I mean people whose lives very closely resemble my Commandments. I mean people who camp out for days to get the first copy of their favorite sequel. They don’t necessarily have to stalk authors or turn everything into a totally obsessive fangirl-fest. They just have to be really into reading.
Thus, dear readers, today I introduce the “book nerd” species into this hierarchy of nerd/geek/dorkiness. Arise, bookworms, and conquer!* Because, unlike the Trekkies and the Comic-Con dresser-uppers among us, we have at our disposal the power of words!
You know what they say:
And another thing: never let your title bring you down! Bear your mark of nerd/geek/dorkiness proudly! It’s a badge of honor, says I!
Okay, that’s enough for the randomness that is this post.
*Okay, maybe not conquer, per se…
