My Top 10 BookNerd Problems

Originally posted on Metal and the Geek:
When you are an avid reader, there are some things that regular people will say or do that will just get under your skin. Then there are just somethings that come with the territory of being a booknerd. Here are my top ten booknerd problems. Are you ready for this? I am! 1. When you are reading, and someone asks “What are you reading?”  Take note here, If I am reading a physical copy of a book, do NOT ask me what I am reading, just read the damn cover and then google it. If I am reading on my Kindle, do NOT ask me what I am reading, for the simple reason that it is fucking annoying!! Wait until I put it away and then ask.

There are several things that Nerd Fitness does better than other fitness groups and makes it my go-to when I need a motivation boost or a good workout! 1. It makes exercise genuinely fun If you’re struggling to keep to a fitness routine simply because you hate workouts, don’t worry, you aren’t alone. Making a habit is tough especially when it’s something you despise doing. Nerd Fitness works around the incredibly motivating idea that life is a video game. Sounds crazy? It sort of is but it’s also highly effective! In role-playing video games you work to become better, stronger, faster so that you can level up. You work on particular skills like speed and agility to improve them in order to complete tasks. Why can’t real life be the same? Steve Kamb challenges us to believe that it can be. “The overarching…
