Coming Soon!! Star Wars Book Challenge

Star-Wars-Book Challenge Coming SoonSo with the Star Trek Book Challenge almost to a end. I was looking around for another challenge and what would be more fitting than Star Wars!! I always enjoyed Trek (the TV shows & movie more so, than the books). But I’ve been a bigger Fanboy to the Wars and the novels. After reading Star Wars: Dark Force Rising (Star Wars: The Thrawn Trilogy #2) it gave me the idea to do this challenge. So I figured I will read one Star Wars novel a month and post them on the 15th till the release of Star Wars VIII. Think of it as a fun way to count down to the the movie! Now I have some other smaller Star Wars novels that I’ll double up on and add a “.5” to them, much like I did with the Star Trek Challenge. So I’m thinking June 15, 2016 will be the start date for this new challenge and end on December 15, 2017. I believe that will be about 19 (unless I find some other smaller novels to squeeze in there) books in all. At any rate I’m rather looking forward to this and I hope you all enjoy it as much as well.

My wife being snicky got me this for Christmas. It’s perfect for everything I need and what I was oh for in a tablet. I had to get my own stylist for the Tab A. But that wasn’t a big deal, the only problem I has was the cover. The tablet it self was super light and easy on the hands. But the cover added so much weight it was nuts.

Nerd Day Out With Father & Son

Took my little hobbit out on a father son day. Let him call the shots on what shop we should go in. Oddly enough it was all toy/video game shops and comic stores haha.

We found our nerdy heaven down a few rows in Hobby Lobby. Sadly it’s Hobby Lobby, but they have so much cool stuff. Someone got a new toy and then finished the day of with some ice cream.

2014 In Review For Nerdy Life Of Mine

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 13,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 5 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
