Geekdom of Books: Happy Easter!

Happy Easter everyone!

This week I found something really geeky and amusing which totally deserves a post of it’s own. Luckily it fits at least a bit to Eastern so I could come up with a reason to post it:

The Nabaztag.

It’s these super cute bunny on the left and it can entertain you endlessly or so they say.

What can it do?
It connects via wifi to the wonderful world of the internet and is able to
– tell you what the weather will be like (yes this rabbit can speak LOL)
– read your RSS reader for you (that sounds just fantastic to me)
– inform you about new emails or txt messages
– it can move it’s ears matching to the music it plays with the fitting light show included

and the list goes on and on….it’s a learning little robot with always updating features.

And they also launched a smaller edition of it called

Book Blurb:This professor’s final exam includes a spanking.

There’s no house restoration too challenging for Rae Jackson, a.k.a. “The Fix-It Lady”. There’s no fixing the past, though. Like the day she left college. A semester of flirting with her English professor ended when he spanked her to the best orgasm of her life. Afraid of her own eager willingness to comply with the sexy dom’s commands—no matter what—she fled.

Yet not even five years can dim her memory of his masterful touch.

Conn never forgot the one student who gave him a big fat “F” on the greatest test of his life. After all these years, he’s still …

The Mage in Black (Sabina Kane, #2) by Jaye WellsGenre: Urban FantasySabina Kane doesn’t have the best track record when it comes to family. After all, her own grandmother, leader of the vampire race, wants her dead. So when she arrives in New York to meet her mage relatives, the reunion puts the fun in dysfunctional. Not only is mage culture completely bizarre, but everyone seems to think she’s some kind of ‘Chosen’ who’ll unite the dark races. Sabina doesn’t care who chose her, she’s not into destiny. But the mages aren’t Sabina’s only problem. In New York’s Black Light District, she has run-ins with fighting demons, hostile werewolves and an opportunistic old flame.

Geekdom of Books: Bookish Jewelery

In a frantic search to find something to blog about this week I stumbled upon something I thought all female Book Lovers would enjoy.

Jewelery with a bookish touch. I so love this idea and I found perhaps, something for all of us.

1. Really Geeky Earrings

I found these on Etsy and I totally love the idea. No, we don’t all have to wear Watchmen earrings now. That would be dumb. LOL
No, you can get any book you want in this shop. You just have to ask.

Think about the possibilities. A new pair of books for every day of the week? OMG I love these earrings.
And they only cost 25 USD.

Here is the link to the shop. Copyright for the pic and the art has Lauren Swingle.

2. Steampunk Book Necklace

Steampunk is getting more popular with every day and now Etsy is nearly overrun with Steampunk Jewelery. I think this one is a …

The Devil’s Playground (Morgan Kingsley, #5) by Jenna Black

Genre: Urban Fantasy 

Morgan Kingsley, a kick-ass exorcist, can deal with Lugh, the super-sexy demon living inside her, but does he have to moan softly during her intimate moments with her mortal lover? Understandably, Brian is reluctant to share the pleasures of Morgan’s flesh with a gorgeous rogue from the Demon Realm.

But personal matters will have to wait when the opportunistic owner of The Seven Deadlies demon club in Philadelphia enlists Morgan’s help in heading off a crisis: It seems that demons have started showing up at the hot spot in alarming numbers and in the unwilling bodies of rough trade club-goers. Morgan is sure that Dougal, Lugh’s sworn enemy, is behind this, but why? To find out Morgan must summon every ounce of power at her command—or risk …

Geekdom of Books: Foreign Releases

This post is really just my opinion on what can go wrong when a book gets published in Germany.

And believe me that happens more than you think. And yes, I’m aware of this just being the minority but it makes me angry nonetheless.

It’s a totally subjective post and I can only speak for German releases.
No idea how it works in other countries.

1. Inventing a new English Title for the German edition

Okay I’m not thinking about anything as hilarious as “The Playboy Sheikh’s Virgin Stable-Girl“and other wonderful Harlequin Presents creations but the things we get here in Germany are sometimes rather mind boggling. I can understand when an English book gets a German title cuz that’s what we all would expect but why would they change a English title into another English …

Geekdom of Books: Amigurumi

Today’s post is a bit book unrelated but it soooo cute I just couldn’t not blog about it. 

Amigurumi are little sweet crotched puppets and as always I searched for some more geeky ones and I found a few very cute ones. I tried to make some of them on my own and I have to admit my crafting skills aren’t high enough for crocheting. Man the oney I made look weird to say it nice. More reason for me to admire those who can make these gorgeous Amigurumi.

And before I forget it: Happy belated Pi Day!!!! (Pi Men found here)

The first one is all abot the Lord of The Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien and i just love them. One the right you can see Gandalf. I love the tiny pipe. You can take a look at the rest of the characters here.

Next we have X-Men and what better example to show you …
