Reading & Writing

This page is meant to share two things, books/comics I am currently reading and blog posts (either to this website or to GeekDad.com) that I am planning to write in the very near future. Some of the books/comics that I read I will post about but most I will not, so if you are curious about anything I am reading just get a hold of me via the Contact page. I'll provide links to where you can find the things I am currently reading in case you are interested.

The purpose behind the "writing in work" section of this page is so to provide a way for readers of this blog have any input or feedback about things I am working on before they are published. If so please share (via the Contact page).
