Geek

There are nights when I feel really tired and ready to go sleep then hope to get up early for school the next day.

I lay my head on my pillow, get under my sheets and just before I close my eyes, I read a book.

I tell myself “Just a few pages or perhaps a chapter, then I’ll get some rest”. But half way through, I could not stop myself from continuing to the next page, eager to find out what happens next.

“Just one more chapter”….but after a few more flips of entertaining pages, one glimpse on my cellphones’ clock and it’s 5 o’clock in the morning and I’ve already finished the book.

That scenario happens so often, I feel awful for neglecting sleep and spending so much time on a book that isn’t even a part of my course requirement.

Putting down a good book is really hard to do.

Reading, it’s like an addiction. Really.

Definitely there are others like me, bad visioned and an insomniac  because of reading.

Too much reading.

I love the Think Geek website. (www.thinkgeek.com)

I have browsed through their website for years but I still haven’t purchased a single item. My wish list on my Think Geek account has more than 50 items and it keeps growing.

I made this list for those of you who haven’t bought a gift for that geeky/nerdy friend, loved one, office mate, classmate, or relative of yours.

I’ve skipped items which may be too expensive for a gift and t-shirts and plush toys. This list contains items which are useful and/or unique and all under $50 found on the Think Geek website.
