Book: Felicia Day's "You're Never Weird On The Internet (Almost)"

I switched away from fiction to nonfiction memoir for my sixth book of the year.  I've been reading Felicia Day's tweets and watching her on television for a while now so I decided to read her memoir, "You're Never Weird on the Internet (Almost)".

Felicia Day is an interesting person.  She reminds me of me if by me I meant who I wished I was.  I mean she is an introvert who is talented and driven enough to overcome her doubts and become successful.

Felicia Day is nerdy - she is often refereed to as the Queen of the Nerds - and the book is sprinkled with nerdy gaming, Sci-Fi, and fantasy references.  She dumbs it down quite a bit so that non-nerds aren't turned off by the geek but I wish she would have gone full nerd at times.  It would have been fun but I'm sure it would have eaten into her book revenue.

I liked Felicia Day before I read this book and I think I like her more now that I've read about her life.  I enjoyed the book and I'm sure there will me more chapters in the future.

I gave the book four stars on Goodreads because I was entertained, informed, and a little geeked out after reading it.
