Nerd Alert

I'll admit it.  I'm a nerd.  Not like a smart nerd, no pocket protector wearing, broken taped up glasses, pants that are too short stereo-typical nerd.  I'm a book nerd.  I love to read.  I enjoy reading so very much.  I love it. 

My dream would be to have a library in my house.  A room of books.  I only keep the books I would read again.  If I don't see myself wanting to read something again, it gets donated, or brought to work to put on our shelf here.  If I want it, I'll place it on my bookshelf.  There are some books I've read on my kindle, or borrowed someone's book and then marched out and bought a hard copy for myself.

Yes, I have certain books archived on my Kindle.  However, I want the book on my shelf.  I want to keep the Kindle space clear for books.  I LOVE books. 

Currently, I'm reading "A Song of Ice and Fire" series by George R. R. Martin.  You may know it as the Game of Thrones television show on HBO.  These are the books that was based off of.  Now, I read the first book before watching the 1st season, same with the second.  There are some minor changes, some tweaks to make it a season's worth of TV. The seasons would be very long if it followed the book.  I tried very hard to stop at the end of book two and not read ahead.

I can't help it.

It's my escape right now.  I drift off to a world with castles, kings, queens and dragons!!! I'm so tired of the Fairy Tale Princess story.  I love them, don't get me wrong, but this is a more accurate depiction of life back in those days.  

The books are just incredible.  I'm glad to know that the author is working on book 6 because I don't know what I will do when I get to the end of Book 5 and there isn't anoterh book to dive into.  Sure, I'll read something else but ... I'll be desperately waiting to get back into the fictional world of Westoros!!

I purchased the 5 books on my Kindle but, I will be purchasing the actual books to put on my trusty bookshelf.  I think I'd like to purchase the seasons on DVD too.  

Oh ... and my other total nerd-isms .... DOCTOR WHO!!!!!!!!  Ahhh, it's the 50th Anniversary of the start of Doctor Who.  There is a special on Saturday called The Day of the Doctor.  I went in and made sure it was recording.  I also noticed that all week on BBC it's like a Doctor Who extravaganza.  I am so excited.  If I ever need something to watch I can clip on BBC and be whisked away to another fantasy land. 

I'm not a big fan of real life at the moment so my nerdy fantasy-lands are the greatest place for me to be.  Real life just sucks sometimes.  Not completely, but it sucks. 

OK, I have to go back to being a nerd now.
