Simon Pegg’s Nerd Do Well, Review and Giveaway

Simon Pegg is right up there with Nerd royalty.  He’s been the star of nerd classics like Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead and is a genuine nerd himself with a Star Wars obsession.  Now he’s written a memoir about both his real life, and the imaginary spy one in his head.  In Nerd Do Well you’ll find out how Simon made his way from child, to geek, to successful actor.  His stories are full of self-deprecating charm and humor and are sure to leave you laughing.  You also get a separate story about Simon the spy and his trusty butler Canterbury on an adventure that’s all in Simon’s head, or is it?

The publisher has given me a copy of Nerd Do Well to give away to one lucky reader.  To enter, leave a comment below and I will pick a random winner next Tuesday, June 28th. (Open to residents of the US only.)

Congratulations to Jo Anna on scoring the free copy of Nerd Do Well!!

    Like Simon, I fell in love with zombies after I watched 'Night of the Living Dead' as a child. I hope I win. I'm literate, sometimes funny, and have my MFA in creative writing, which means I put of my writing a lot by reading others'. Pick me, pick me, pretty please!

  5. It's definitely on my list of books to pick up. Haven't seen him in a role I haven't liked yet.

    Have I mentioned that there's a zombie museum in Monroeville Mall? :))

    There's something incredibly charming and encouraging about Simon Pegg's vision of incorporating his own geeky obsessions into his work. I'm so pleased that the book is out in the US. 😀
