Geek Out

Read Girl with the Dragon Tattoo on my Nook

I read "The Geek Chronicles 3 Dear God Help!!! Love,Earl"

I couldn't relate very well to the main character, and it seemed like the way he handled his bullying problem was very unrealistic. The upside is that it's a very quick read,less than an hour for me, and good for at least some entertainment.

Watched the First Season of Doctor Who

After being surrounded by Doctor Who references for years, I'm finally clued in. The first episode in this season didn't hook me, but a friend recommended watching "Blink" and "Silence in the Library" from Seasons Three and Four. Those sucked me in and then I went back to the first season and thoroughly enjoyed it.
