DE-GEEKIFICATION, CONTD.: Adding strength to

DE-GEEKIFICATION, CONTD.: Adding strength to my theory that I'm not nearly as much of a geek as I always thought, I just saw the list of the Science Fiction Book Club's 50 Most Significant Science-Fiction and Fantasy Books, and of the 50, I have read... one and a half. I read all of "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" in high school, and a little bit of "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's/Philospher's Stone" a couple years ago.
But then again, I have seen the movie versions of several books on the list ("Lord of the Rings," "Dune," "Harry Potter," "Interview With the Vampire," "Slaughterhouse Five," and "Starship Troopers"), and of the 100 films on the AFI's list of "100 Years, 100 Movies," I have up 'til now seen 68. So I may be a film geek, music geek, Twins geek, and democracy geek, but at least I'm not one of those sci-fi geeks.
