You're Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) by Felicia Day

Several years ago, my friend told me about these two webseries called "Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog" and "The Guild." I watched both of them, loved them both, and wanted to know what else I could see Felicia Day in, because she was wonderful. (Perhaps surprisingly, I don't watch Supernatural, but I've heard she's great in it.) I actually got to meet her at a convention in DC last year, and she's friendly and funny and overall just delightful. So of course I wanted to read her memoir, You're Never Weird on the Internet (Almost).

Coincidentally, I picked this book up around the same time I started watching a lot of shows on Geek & Sundry, which is a multimedia production company she co-founded. The first half of the book is about her childhood and how integral the internet was to turning her into the person she is today, and the second half is mostly about her experiences getting her webseries "The Guild" made and the development of Geek & Sundry after that.

If you enjoy reading about Felicia Day and her work, you might want to check some of it out! "The Guild" was turned into graphic novels, available on Hoopla. You might also be interested in the biography of Joss Whedon, friend and foreword-writer of Felicia Day, also on Hoopla.
