Welcome to the Nerdfighter Ning!

We hope you have a nice time hanging out here. There's one thing though... Running a website has a few costs associated with it. There's the physical server hosting, and you've got to make sure your domain doesn't expire. Any donations towards this would be most appreciated.

Books I recommend!

Sorry that I haven't been around very much lately! My father has been ill and in hospital for the past two months. He's on the road to recovery now and that means that I have more space in my brain to concentrate on bringing you all more book recommendations and blog posts!

Here are some of the books I've been reading and enjoying lately. Feel free to share in comments your own recommendations and/or write your own lists and reviews in the blog section and send them over to me. I love hearing about them.

Thanks to our task force for helping me edit this video and make sure I wasn't too clumsy with the work, especially to Sahitya.

Here are some resources put together by the task force:

If someone is pressuring you:…
