Word Nerd; John D. Williams Jr.

Word Nerd: Dispatches from the Games, Grammar, and Geek UndergroundWord Nerd: Dispatches from the Games, Grammar, and Geek Underground by John D. Williams Jr.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

As a committed word nerd, but not a Scrabble player (seriously? I'm not a good speller, which is kind of a prerequisite for playing), this was a pretty interesting read. The tricks, tips and word lists made me wish I did play, but there's no way I could compete. The disappointing part was that I wanted more about the players, the Scrabble culture, etc. and less of the memoir. Yes, I know that this is a memoir, so I should have known better. Still...
