Help!

Two awesome events at my favorite kid's book store this week, and I can only go to one of them! Help me decide!

On Tuesday evening YA author John Green and his musically "talented" brother Hank will be at the Little Shop of Stories in Decatur for John to sign his new book Paper Towns and Hank to be all goofy and sing.  Yes, a gathering of Nerdfighters!  They fight world suck and are made of awesome! I love these guys and can't believe they're going to be in town.  I'm a grown man trying not to wet his pants over two nerdy brothers.  How strange is that?

On Thursday at the same shop is my regular monthly book club.  The traditions of the book club has recently changed in that we often make our way down the block to my favorite pub, The Brick Store and quaff a few after the basic booktalk.  And this month's discussion?  The Book Thief. Which I picked.  So I feel a bit obligated.

Now remember, I have big projects in grad school.  The Nerdfighter event will probably end early and I might even get home to get work done.  The book club/beerfest would clearly wipe me out that evening.  But maybe that's a good thing, I don't know.

I can't decide.  What do you think?

Hi fellow Nerdfighter and future librarian! I came across your blog on the Ning and had to comment. I work at the GA State Univ Library and b/c of that I'm sick from handling germy student IDs to check out their books. So I missed the Paper Towns event in Decatur. Tragedies! I saw you went and I'm jealous. Was it so jokes???

BTW love your blog!

It WAS jokes. Just finished posting on it. Hank was absent, but it was great fun. Wish I could have mingled w/other nerdfighters, but had to rush home for grad work. How's the GSU library? Haven't been in there since the 90s!

GSU Library has changed drastically. We are no longer ill-lit and dank. The entire library has been remodeled. You should definitely stop by. I work weekends and I have the purple hair. I work with an awesome nerdfighter-in-training who has bright pink hair. We're "hippin" up the library. LOLz
