Don’t worry, the site isn’t going to be all-book-promotion all-the-time, but this IS Day 1 and we do want to make sure you know that if you’re a) reading this before 6:30 pm Pacific time on Tuesday, November 1st, and b) in the San Francisco Bay Area, there’s still time to get down to the Apple Store at 1 Stockton Street in downtown San Francisco, right by Market Street and a couple of blocks from Union Square, where celebrated author Chris Hardwick will be appearing to meet and greet folks while marking the official publication date of his book The Nerdist Way. Go, buy the book, greet Chris, and luxuriate in his aura. Fun for all.
If you can’t make it there, or even if you can, here’s something else of which you’ll want to be apprised: Our friends and partners at GeekChicDaily are offering you — yes, YOU — a chance to win one of three copies of The Nerdist Way, along with a Nerdist t-shirt for each winner. And all you have to do is sign up for GCD’s emails (and you’ll like those whether there’s a contest attached or not). If you’ve already signed up for the emails, you can enter, too (you just have to enter your email address). GCD’s own piece about the contest can be perused by clicking here, and the actual contest entry page, with rules and stuff, can be found by clicking here. So click, enter, and good luck. The contest ends November 8th, by the way.
