  17. I would love to win this book because I was the biggest geek in high school and still am! I wanted to join the role-playing club, but I went to one meeting and was the only girl there so I never came back. And I wanted to join the SCA but my parents didn't let me. Yet I got the autographs of 5 of the first 6 Doctors Who!

  59. I'm a geek. I've always been a geek. I've embraced my not-so-inner geek ways.
    And I hang out with high school kids at my church (I'm a volunteer with the youth group). And some of the kids are geeks. Some of them are having a really hard time with that (cause even though it's easier being a geek now, I don't think it's ever going to really be easy. Or maybe it's just middle and high school in general that are hard.) Anyway, I'm always looking for ways to try to convince the reluctant geeks that things are not so bad and being a geek is actually a lot of fun. This book looks like something that I could share with a couple of my geekier kids. Thanks for the chance to win!

  61. It sounds hilarious + I'm a bit of a geek. Science High School, loved Math until I hit Calculus, love fantasy and sci fi, plus quite a few other things...

    Those are just a few of the reasons why I'd love to win this book.
