My copy of the new book Geek Mom is en route to the Maker House, but knowing (in a bloggy sense) several of the authors behind the book, I’m certain it’s going to be a winner in the eyes of readers of this blog.

And one lucky blog reader is going to be a winner of this book.

The kind folks at Random House are providing a copy of Geek Mom for a friend of The Maker Mom.

Given that the topic of the October #STEMchat is libraries as makerspaces, I thought I’d run the giveaway alongside the chat.

You know- libraries/books, makerspaces/family projects- the planets aligned and we all win.

Or at least one of you does.

To enter to a copy of Geek Mom:

Comment once before October 28, 2012 November 3 at 10 PM Central* sharing a geeky activity your family enjoys (or any old thing, really). I must have a way to contact you, so be sure to include your email, Twitter handle or blog link. Deadline extended due to CAPTCHA comment problem.

That’s it! It doesn’t get any easier.

The giveaway is open to US residents over the age of 18. The book retails for $19.99. Prize fulfillment will be handled by the publisher. Winner will be chosen by

Though not required for entry, you are encouraged to follow The Maker Mom on Facebook, subscribe to our monthly newsletter and/or our YouTube channel. Karma, people.

    When watching a movie in the movie theater, my husband has to indicate the number of the preview after each preview. We even count the previews when watching movies at home. A good movie has at least 6 previews.

    While the kidlet is only 15 months now, I forsee many geeky activities in the future as we spent a weekend at the Maker Faire, and last night we made a sonic screwdriver while watching the debate.

    As eclectic Charlotte Mason followers, one of our homeschool subjects is “Handicrafts”. The traditional subject would typically be filled with needlework, cabinetry, etc. While we do some more traditional things from time to time, what we love is to geek it out and learn about all things electronic. Hovercraft, anyone?

    We are all geeky in our house…my son always wants to know how things work, my daughter knows how move around online better than her parents, my hubby well his phone is attached to him even when he sleeps LOL!

    My daughter is currently having me teach her how to design graphics in adobe photoshop, and her skills are quickly matching my own. She’s 10 with a 145 IQ and a photographic memory. She loves learning all things geeky. She also wants me to teach her what I know about computer programing and webpage design / html coding ect…

    Geeky things we enjoy at our house? Does the requisite nonfiction read (and snuggle) time we do count? :) Or the Lego building competitions?And I’m all over the karma!

  7. Melanie Myatt says

    after reading these comments, I’m starting to feel not-so-geeky. how about the fact that all 6 members of our family can be found with a nose in a book throughout the week, more often than all of us can be found in front of the television?melanie(dot)myatt(at)gmail(dot)com
