Nerd Quirk #183. Laughing out loud while reading a book in a public place and getting funny looks from other people by nancysammy ... Nerd Quirks Admin: Monica Jean (16 y/o student, Massachusetts) ... Yeah, it happens. But the best is when you find someone else doing this and ask them what they're reading. A good laugh is the best recommendation! :-) pet peev, school, nerdi, funni, nerd quirks, book, thought, harry potter, nerdquirks
Read all three - good books if you keep in mind that they were written for teenagers
A Game of Thrones 4-Book Boxed Set (A Song of Ice and Fire Series); $29.99 for Nook
The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (Dover Thrift Editions)
it took me months but I just finished all 5 books in the series. Amazing! Too bad the HBO series isn't living up to the books.
