It's Back!!! Weekly Geeks - Feel the Love

Yeah!! Weekly Geeks is back, and with a dedicated blog! I think this is a wonderful way to honor Dewey....continuing on with something she started.

In the spirit of the amazing community building that Dewey was so good at, tell us about your favorite blogs, the ones you have bookmarked or subscribe to in your Google Reader, that you visit on a regular basis. Tell us what it is about these blogs that you love, that inspire or educate you or make you laugh. Be sure to link to them so we can find them too.

Sounds easy, doesn't it?? Of course, there are over 90 blogs in my sidebar that I read on a regular basis. And I know there are more that I need to add. It makes it excruciatingly difficult to actually pick a few blogs to single out. But I'll try:

Kailana from The Written World - I've probably said this before, but Kailana is the reason I started my blog! Out of all the book bloggers out there, she is one of the few that I have known the longest. Her blog is beautiful and is chocked full of great book reviews.

Marg from Reading Adventures - Another blogger that I knew before I started my blog. Marg has a wonderful site full of awesome book reviews. Lots of great Historical Fiction and Romance. A must read blog!

Debi from Nothing of Importance - I think Debi and I were separated at birth, we are that much alike. Debi is a mom to three beautiful kids, and is a complete Challenge Addict!! She has lots of wonderful posts about family, books and reading. Another Must Read Blog!

Tammy from Tammy's Book Nook - Tammy and I met when we were members of The Classics Club. She is smart as a whip, funny as hell...and even though she's a Florida fan, I still love her!! Check out her wonderful book reviews!

Chris from Stuff as Dreams are Made On - Chris is one of the first book bloggers that I "met" when I started this blog. He's like a little brother to me. We share of love of all things fantasy. His blog is full of great book reviews. And to top it all off, he's a really great guy!

Carl from Stainless Steel Droppings - Any book blogger who's been around awhile will know Carl. He is by far the best challenge host I've seen. From the RIP challenge to the Once Upon a Time Challenge, Carl knows how to do things up right. Not only does he post about books....but also art and music. Carl's a one-of-a-kind guy, and if you don't know.....take the time to meet him!!

Nymeth from Things Mean Alot - Nymeth has probably single-handedly increased my TBR pile tenfold. She has a knack for picking out books I've never heard of, and making them sound irresistible!! A prolific reader, Nymeth has one of the best review sites out there!! A Must Read for anyone!

Andi from Tripping Toward Lucidity - Andi is just downright cool. She's a soon-to-be librarian, a writer, a teacher. She interested in a greener planet, politics, books and education. To top it all off, she's smart as hell. One of my favorite bloggers!! more. How about Suey at It's All About Books - Suey has a great blog with lots of super book reviews. And always the American Idol updates!! A Must Read Blog!!

Glad to have Weekly Geeks back!! Later!


Debi said...

Awww...thanks! I so agree about the separated at birth thing. Though you definitely got all the "good looks" genes in the deal! :)

I never knew that about cool!

And I guess it wouldn't be classy to put your own name on the list...but seriously, any list of must read blogs needs to have yours on it!!!

Happy Weekly Geeks!

Nymeth said...'re the best, Stephanie.

And that's one more reason to love Kailana :D

Chris said...

What a fun post full of fun facts! I think the only blog I read before I started blogging was Neil Gaiman's. You're so sweet Steph :) You're on my top list too! In fact, I just posted about you.

If my head gets any bigger, or my heart, I won't be able to get through the front door in the morning! :) I am touched by your words and thank you so much for that. It was a rough week at work and reading such nice things about myself on the internet have really cheered me up, thanks!!!

I'm especially enjoying finding out through these posts who got who into blogging, etc. It is really fun to trace our shared history and to realize that we are a great community.

Melissa said...

That's one great list of bloggers... most of which I enjoy, too. I'll have to check out the couple I haven't yet. :)

Melody said...

Great choices, Stephanie!
I'm happy to see WGs back! :)

Kerrie said...

I've just dropped in from Weekly Geeks Stephanie. Marg is a friend of mine too

Andi said...

Thank you, Stephanie!!! I see a couple of new-to-me blogs I need to check out!

Kailana said...

See, just goes to show you, you can't love Stephanie without loving me too! So, don't forget to share the love! lol (But, Steph, you can't blame the TBR pile on me, okay? I am totally for a hands off policy. No lawsuits if it topples over on someone! ha ha ha!)

Anyway, thanks for the mention! You are one of my favourite blogs, too, of course... I am very glad I influenced you into blogging! You are a gift to the blogging world. :) To many more years of great reviews! (Again, I am not responsible for the TBR pile...)

Chris said...

Great blogs Stephanie!

A little bird told me (actually it was an email reminder) that it's your birthday today!

Happy Birthday!

Stephanie said...

Thanks Chris!! Yes, today is my birthday. I'm feeling rather old today....I think it's the fact that I've been to the gym 2X the last 2 days, and I've been working out. HARD! Gotta get this old body back in shape!

Ladytink_534 said...

You picked some great ones and many were the first bloggers I "met".

Nymeth said...

Happy birthday, dear Stephanie!

Marg said...

Happy birthday Stephanie! Hope you enjoy your special day.

Tammy said...

A belated "thanks" for including me in such a wonderful list of bloggers! And I don't hold it against you that you rag on my Gators -- I'd never let sports come between me and my friends (although Florida is right up there on my priority list);)
