Book Report (sort of): Geeky Dreamboats: A Celebration by Sarah O'Brien and Lacey Soslow
When I saw this Geeky Dreamboats: A Celebration book on Fred Flare, I knew I had to have it. So when I opened it on my birthday last weekend, I was pleased as punch. Once I started leafing through it I found it was - gasp - even funnier than I could have imagined. Chockfull of favorites such as Michael Cera, Jemaine Clement & Bret McKenzie, Topher Grace, Adam Brody, Conan O'Brien, John Krasinski, and Paul Rudd (my personal favorite), this nearly pocket-sized who's who of nerdy knights in shining armor delivers a refreshingly quirky perspective on what makes a dude drool-worthy.
Of course, some of the selections may raise an eyebrow. But as O'Brien and Soslow explain, "Some of these cuties may appear a little dreamier than geeky or a little geekier than dreamy, but remember, the prevailing theme here is the beautiful and poetic combination that makes up the sexy nerd. Not everyone strikes that perfect balance, but we've found a slew of cuties who come pretty close, and we've ranked their appeal with our trusty Geekboat Meter." (Introduction) Well put, ladies.
Whether you're thirteen or thirty, Geeky Dreamboats: A Celebration is sure to earn a top spot on your list of guilty pleasures.
