If you're a nerd (however you want to define that term), it's been a good decade for Nerddom. When the editors of Good Read Magazine got together and decided on the sections the magazine would have - "A Nerd Section!" was blurted out by the nerdiest of us. Nerd stopped having a negative connotation a while back. Mainstream media caught on to what the niche nerd community knew for a long time. Nerd culture is f*cking awesome. You get to escape into fantasy and story, the characters are rich and complicated, and debates about fictional sci-fi and comic characters no longer only occur at your local comic shop, they happen at the office.

With the shift in nerd culture comes a shift in culture overall. The nerd isn't just about comics and spaceships. It’s about the things that light your spark and reignite your inner child. The point is, we hope you share with us all the things that you're passionate about, the things you're a nerd for. We hope this section becomes a place where we share our passions for gaming, cosplay, clothing, movies, larping, comics, tech, music, style, novels, television, toys, board games, replicas and everything in between.

Hopefully, we'll all discover some new and interesting stuff along the way. 'Cause like we said, nerd culture is f*cking awesome.
