Between the Bookends at GeekMom

Geek Culture

It’s time for another look at the GeekMoms’ never-ending stack of books. Collectively, we sure manage to make our way through a fair number of pages, whether we’re reading them on dead trees or e-readers. Here’s what we’ve read this month.

Sophie has just finished reading I Want to Believe (The Official Guide to the X-Files, Vol. 3), the novelization of the second X-Files movie written by Max Allan Collins and possibly the worst novel ever written; she’s not even sure it had an editor. She is a quarter of the way through On Stranger Tides, an adult’s pirate novel by Tim Powers that provided the vague plot for the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides film, although so far the plot bears no resemblance at all to the film. She also hopes to begin 50 Shades of Grey: Book One of the 50 Shades Trilogy by E. L. James this week after picking up an offer to see what all the fuss is about.

Patricia had to take a break from Chad Orzel’s How to Teach Relativity to Your Dog – she was thinking too hard for the book to be “light reading” and decided to hop on board this month’s GeekMom Book Club selection: Pilgrim of the Sky by GeekMom’s own Natania Barron! So far it’s been such a fun adventure! This is also the first Kindle download she’s read in about 2 years. Which means she can turn on the white-on-black screen and read late late late into the night, yay! She will return to How to Teach Relativity to Your Dog in May.
