Be Nerdy

So far, what are your thoughts on this book?

I just started reading it, and I love the raw, candid, sense of humor.  I am excited to keep reading.  I think it is fitting for girls of all ages. Tell me what you think.


So far, the best quote I have come across in the book:

“When I was a kid, my parents smartly raised us to keep quiet, be respectful to older people, and generally not questions adults all that much.  I think that’s because they were assuming that 99 percent of the time, we’d be interacting with worthy, smart adults, like my aunts and uncles; my teachers; my ancient and knowledgeable piano instructor, Mrs. Brewster; and police officers.  They didn’t ever tell me, ‘sometimes you will meet idiots who are technically adults and authority figures. You don’t have do to what they say….” (p. 29)

  1. If you are reading this book with the Honey Be Team, please consider the following questions:
    1. Can you relate to the stories? How so?
    2. Do you have a similar story or situation that you would like to share?
    3. What makes Mindy so charming?


  2. So, I am on page 134. I am really enjoying Mindy’s dry and self-deprecating sense of humor. Her writing (and thus her brain) reminds me of my own communication style. And I love it because it makes me feel like maybe one day I can be famous an popular like her.

    I had no idea until reading this book that she was a main writer, producer, and director for The Office–one of my all time favorite shows. It is so cool how all this time she was a “behind the scenes” gal–who made the show famous–and most people thought she just played a “minor role” in the show.


  3. Mindy is a wonderful example of a woman who is totally ok with who she is, she is just “herself.” She is also a wonderful example of a woman who follows her heart, works hard, and lets the journey take her to the next adventure–whatever it might be.
