The Weekly Geek 41 - March 5, 2021

Hello, you nerds. Welcome to this short roundup of stuff I'm geeking out about:

  • What I'm reading: Star Wars: Victory's Price This is the third book in Alexander Freed's Alphabet Squadron trilogy. The series takes place shortly after Return of the Jedi and follows five New Republic pilots tasked with hunting down a lethal TIE fighter wing. Freed's excellent writing drops you right into the cockpit of an starship spiraling through a dogfight. The books require no Star Wars knowledge outside the Original Trilogy to enjoy. At the same time, the series' numerous connections to other works serve to please longtime fans while acting as a great launching point for fans new to Star Wars material beyond the films.

  • What I'm Prepping for: The CrossFit Open. The event is open to anyone and sees CrossFitters across the world participate in a series of challenging weekly workouts. Top qualifiers can continue on their journey to the CrossFit Games. I've decided to cut my effort back to 30% this year so that others from my region have a fighting chance to qualify. It's a sacrifice on my part, but I feel it's only fair.

That's it for this week. If you like discovering awesome new stuff, be sure to share and subscribe so you don't miss any nerdy stuff!
