While doing my daily news feed check via FeedDemon, I discoverd that ThinkGeek was carrying Just A Geek , a book I’ve been eyeing for a while. I don’t do much book readin’ these days, as I think my reading eyes are worn out from all the surfing I do, but every once in a while something sounds interesting and I bite. I did end up reading the Masters of Doom on my flight out to E3, but haven’t been able to get into anything since.
For those that don’t know, Just A Geek is written by Wil Wheaton, an actor known for his roles as Wesley Crusher on Star Trek: The Next Generation and as Gordie Lachance in Stand By Me. Wil has a popular weblog that he updates pretty regularly, with combinations of his run-ins with Holllywood and interactions with his wife and kids.
Since I’ve been following the site for a while, I decided to spring for his new book when it came out. I’ve almost picked up his last, but after hearing about JAG, decided to use it as the ice breaker. I’ll try to remember to let you know what I think, once it shows and I actually crack the cover.
