*KRISTEN’S PICK*

The day I got this book I was meeting my husband for dinner, and (as usual) he was late. Which was okay, for once, as I got to start reading at the bar. My husband paid the price for being late, there was no loving chit chat at dinner, but a lot of “shushing” from me, along with assorted remarks like “I am trying to read”, and “where’s your book” (I love the guy, don’t get me wrong). When we got home, I stayed up reading until the end and I bet you will too. Larry Doyle (an ex Simpson’s writer) has crafted an uproarious love letter to geeks everywhere. With a definite Simpson’s flair, (and I mean that in the best of ways - I’m a huge fan!) right down to the obligatory “Millhouse” of a best friend (read gay) who also, no matter what the situation, cannot stop spouting movie quotes, including their directors. Who doesn’t have a friend like this? I have two (you know who you are). I can’t imagine anyone not liking this book!

So, what do you think?
