Five Fandom Friday: Favorite Fictional Dads

Well Erinn's getting on schedule! 
Favorite Fictional Dads...THERE ARE SO MANY, but here's who I've narrowed it down to:

1. Andy Taylor (The Andy Griffith Show)

Good ol' Andy. I grew up watching this show and seeing how this Dad juggled family time with running the town jail. A single father who raised his son to be a respectful man, and a guy that earned that same respect by putting others first.

2. Atticus Finch (To Kill A Mockingbird)

There's so much about Atticus that reminds me of my father. Most of all, that he never bends his beliefs when people oppose him. How he never discriminates the people around him.

3. Harry Morgan (Dexter)

Harry accepts the dark side of Dexter and helps him work through these emotions. I adore seeing a father figure on television that doesn't treat their children like foreign matter.

4. Bobby Singer

Let's go on a hunting trip boys! I know that Bobby isn't a father (though could have been as speculated by many of us in the fandom), but /he was a father to Sam and Dean. Teaching them to function in the chaos around them. A tough man with thick skin, but a heart bigger than most men in the supernatural field.

5. Henry Spencer

Finally, Henry Spencer, This dad reminds me of Harry Morgan but with a son whose life revolves around fanatics. He supports his son but makes sure his motives are in the right place, All survival skills aside, his genuine concern for his child, even in retirement, warms my heart.

Thank a man in your life that has helped you make it through various situations, whether it be through mental, physical, or emotional support.

Book Review- The Nerdist Way: How to Reach the Next Level (In Real Life)

Try to ignore Castiel creeping in the back...that sneaky little angel. I fished up this fantastic book today and decided to review it ASAP because many of you may like it as well.

The Nerdist Way: How to Reach the Next Level (In Real Life) by Chris Hardwick
Published By: Berkley
Pages: 304
Genre(s): Autobiography, Humor, Self-Help, Nerdgasm

A self-help book geared toward the nerd brain. Compartmentalizing, blowing things up bigger than reality, obsessing over things, long hours lost, and fun times are literally written all over these pages.

I went into this novel blind. I would have realized that it was in fact a self-help book for nerds if I would have looked a little closer, but this oblivion was a blessing in disguise. It turned out to be just what I needed having recently graduated from high school, reading this was a great passage into the weird buffer that ends with adulthood. So nerds around, pick up this book and share in the fun with me!
