Ugh, just when I thought I had a reading plan for the rest of the year the Mrs. and I start watching the Harry Potter movies and I start wondering… should I be re-reading the Harry Potter books? Which becomes an issue for me. Right now, I’m elbows deep in the first First Law trilogy. Fun fact, our good friend Kyle was very much on … Continue reading When Books Attack- Should I Re-Read Harry Potter?!
I wish books came with soundtracks. Honestly, I don’t understand how we live in a world where books don’t have soundtracks. Think about it, movies, tv shows, and video games all have soundtracks to accompany the stories they tell. How is it that books haven’t adopted this same philosophy? This seems like something that could further boost sales in the book community, not to mention … Continue reading Why Don’t Books Come With Soundtracks?!
Finishing a book is usually one of my favorite feelings in the world. It’s right up there with whenever tacos are presented or when Hudson the Cat makes steady eye contact and then slow blinks at me. Finishing a book is a sense of victory and no matter how many books I’ve finished, and there have been a bunch, that feeling never goes away.

Every so often, I have to come to the pages of I Am Geek and make a confession. These confessions don’t come easy. I like to believe that I have consumed a great deal of pop culture in my life maybe even enough for two lifetimes. I’m not here to measure or brag… which is a lie. I’m totally bragging. Even with that mass consumption … Continue reading Dune Trailer- What’s In the Box, Sandworms, & Oscar Isaac’s Tremendous Beard
No year would be complete without me coming here and gracing your eyeholes with a post about my reading struggles. Now, before we get into the “meat and potatoes” of this column, I do want to preface that I am killing it with my yearly reading challenge. Like Michael Myers style… get it? Because he’s a killer? No? Whatever guys, whatever. Weird horror movie analogies … Continue reading Annual Reading Dilemma
There are days when you want to write. You get that itch. You even have an array of topics that you can cover. Those are the best days. The days where you can almost pull a topic out of a hat and then sit in front of the keyboard for an hour, maybe an hour and a half, and bang out some thoughts on a … Continue reading Difficulties In Writing But Saved By A Trailer
There are very few things as exciting as new book day. The anticipation of a new story, or a continued story, and the giddiness that follows turning to that first page. The feel of the words in your hand just waiting to dance through your brain. The promise of adventure and the ability to fall in love with characters and the story they live in. … Continue reading Bookmarks or Folded Pages?
