It's 2012, time to get smarter!

Getting a bigger and better brain should be everyone's New Years' resolution. But how do you do that without a mad science degree? Well, it is pretty easy. Just join the Geek Girls Book Club!

In the random chance you haven't heard of the Geek Girls Book Club, here is the story. Waaaaaaay back last year, you might remember hearing about a certain NY Times reviewer saying "While I do not doubt that there are women in the world who read books like Mr. Martin’s, I can honestly say that I have never met a single woman who has stood up in indignation at her book club and refused to read the latest from Lorrie Moore unless everyone agreed to “The Hobbit” first. “Game of Thrones” is boy fiction patronizingly turned out to reach the population’s other half." Well, when GGBC founder Nicole Girtman saw that, she was angry. Then she decided to proved that author wrong. Thanks to that article, Geek Girls Book Club was born! Less than a year later, its members come from all corners of the world.

Of course, our first book was The Hobbit, and since then we have touched on almost every geek genre. January's book is the wildly popular Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. So grab a copy and start reading!  On January 28, head over to the GGBC websiteGoodReads page, FB Group or Page, or Twitter at #GGBC, and chat with geek girls and guys (yes, we have boys!) about your favorite parts of the book! 

So take this opportunity to get a little smarter and make some new friends. Hopefully I will see you there!
