As many of you know, I am a relatively nerdy person.  I mean, come on.  I seriously am nerdy!  Anyway, so I was thinking, is there any way I could become nerdier?  Is that even possible?

So I Googled it, and of course, Wikihow has a list of steps!

Here is what it says: (Note that I'm skipping stuff)

✔ Be Unique:  I don't think I need to go over this one.  I don't wear what everyone wears.  I don't talk like everyone talks.  I don't blow off school, like some do.  The list goes on...
Be willing to commit yourself to commit yourself intensely to an interest:   Lets see... Blogging, Young Adult Literature, School, Movies, Books, Fandom, Comics, Cartoons, Video Games, Drawing, Music, Jokes, Writing...ect. again
Read Everything:  Now what is this blog called?  Hmm?  Remedyleaf's what, blog?  Book and writing blog?  And what do you do with those two things?  You read them! ;)
Read More Serious Books:  Classics?  Did I not just pick up a copy of Jane Austen's Emma today?  I think I've got it covered.
Be Persistent and Focused on the Positives:  I'm an optimistic person.  I'm leaving it at that!

So I think I hit all those points, eh?  I'll keep you posted on my trek to become an extreme nerd!

Now for the Special today:  Books To Read

The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan.


Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school... again. And that's the least of his troubles. Lately, mythological monsters and the gods of Mount Olympus seem to be walking straight out of the pages of Percy's Greek mythology textbook and into his life. And worse, he's angered a few of them. Zeus' master lightning bolt has been stolen, and Percy is the prime suspect.

Now Percy and his friends have just ten days to find and return Zeus' stolen property and bring peace to a warring Mount Olympus. But to succeed on his quest, Percy will have to do more than catch the true thief: he must come to terms with the father who abandoned him; solve the riddle of the Oracle, which warns him of betrayal by a friend; and unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves.

Now I know what you're thinking, How on earth has Remedyleaf not read this?!?!?! And to be honest, I have no excuse.  I just never got around to reading it.  So thought I'd start, and have recently requested it from the library.  So there.  I will be joining the fan-boat soon enough!!!!
