Publisher's Summary

In the tradition of #Girlboss and Mindy Kaling's Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, a funny, quirky, and inspiring memoir from online entertainment mogul, actress, and "queen of the geeks" Felicia Day about her unusual upbringing, her rise to Internet stardom, and embracing her individuality to find success in Hollywood.
The Internet isn't all cat videos - almost.
There's also Felicia Day - violinist, filmmaker, Internet entrepreneur, compulsive gamer, hoagie specialist, and former lonely homeschooled girl who overcame her isolated childhood to become the ruler of a new world - or at least the world of Internet-geek fame and Goodreads book clubs.
Growing up in the South, where she was homeschooled for hippie reasons, Felicia moved to Hollywood to pursue her dream of becoming an actress and was immediately typecast as a crazy cat-lady secretary. But Felicia's misadventures in Hollywood led her to produce her own web series, own her own production company, and become an instant Internet star.
Felcia's shortish life and her rags-to-riches rise to Internet fame launched her career as one of the most influential creators in new media. Now Felicia's strange life is filled with thoughts on creativity, video games, and a dash of mild feminist activism - just like her memoir.
Hilarious and inspirational, You're Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) is proof that everyone should embrace what makes them different and be brave enough to share it with the world, because anything is possible now - even for a digital misfit.

Feels like I've spent a week hanging out w/Felicia

I've been a fan of Felicia since the first season of The Guild. I feel a little weird admitting this, but my brain registers her as one of my friends even though we've never met. I can't think of another actor, artist or celebrity that I both admire and consider a kindred spirit. All week during my commute to and from work, I've listened to Felicia read her book and I applaud her candidness, her honesty and her indomitable spirit.

While listening to her story about meeting one of scifi's leading ladies and commenting on her golf cart, I seriously almost got in a car accident from laughing so hard. It's not all laughs, though. There's some very brave and honest soul bearing moments. I found this book incredibly inspiring, and I'm so glad I chose the audiobook format. If you get this book, *NO NOT* miss the .pdf download that comes with it.

inspirational and hits homes for fellow nerds. I tried desperately to pace myself but this book is about as addicting as World of Warcraft.
