Publisher's Summary

The Internet isn't all cat videos. There's also Felicia Day - violinist, filmmaker, Internet entrepreneur, compulsive gamer, and former lonely homeschooled girl who overcame her isolated childhood to become the ruler of a new world...or at least semi-influential in the world of Internet geeks and Goodreads book clubs.

After 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 Internet star.

Felicia's short-ish 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 world 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.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

What the Critics Say

"Everything Felicia creates seems to succeed. This book should be no different. It's a great read - far from 'horrible' and worth every 'Penny'. See what I did there? It's a play on...never mind." (Neil Patrick Harris, author of Choose Your Own Autobiography and Felicia's costar in Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog)

"Reading Felicia Day's memoir is like going on a road trip with an old friend you never knew you had. This is the perfect book to prove you aren't the only misfit in the world, and to remind you that that's a very good thing." (Jenny Lawson, author of Let's Pretend This Never Happened)

"It's hard to keep up with Felicia Day. She's an actress, a gamer, a screenwriter, a songwriter, a producer, a director, a webmaster, a costumer, and queen of the geek girls. It's hard to imagine where such a prodigy could have come from. Wonder no longer. Felicia tells all...well, most...well, some...in her new book. Reading this is like sitting down and having dinner with her, and hearing the story of her life between the clam chowder and the cheesecake. I can't imagine a more charming or amusing dinner companion. Felicia is a lot of fun, and so is her book." (George R. R. Martin)

"I have personal heroes, and Felicia Day is one of them... She's more than a self-made woman - I sometimes think she's not a human woman, that she willed herself into existence, before willing the world to make a place for this new, unfathomable creation. Felicia is stronger than I am, and stranger than I am, and she double-majored in math and violin. I love her for all these things. I love this book because it relates, hilariously and occasionally harrowingly, how she came - or brought herself - to be this singular (though double-majored) creature." (Joss Whedon)

    "Funny and charming and nerdy :)"

    I was kind of tangentially aware of Felicia Day's work but plan to seek more of it out after listening to this. Her story is engaging and funny and she does a fantastic job reading it. If you are in anyway at all interested in nerd culture or just enjoy a laugh you will probably get something out of this book. I appreciate that she is not at all apologetic about being a high achiever but is also honest about her anxiety.

    It's also quite touching in places - there's a bit with a fan that made me tear up a bit. The gamergate chapter is also really interesting and a thoughtful examination of that ridiculous phenomenon.

    I was enjoying it so much, that I listened to it all in one day - so, yes, I recommend this book.

    The pdf is available but not, apparently, on my phone.

    "loved every last word"

    I picked up the audiobook as my
    travel companion for my daily commute. Having been a big fan of Felicia Day for years now I had been looking forward to the book for months. This book, read by Felicia herself, gives wonderful insights into the weird and creative mind of a situationally famous lady gamer/actress/writer/person that made me smile, nod, frequently chuckle and snort but also feel strongly connected during her accounts of her depressions,fears and worries. Hearing her relate her not infrequent struggles with people, the mad mad world and above all herself made me feel okay about my own quirks and struggles.
    Great, inspiring and funny memoir.

    Could not recommend this book enough. Felicia's performance is amazing, a lot of ups and downs, very eye opening towards causes for depression and anxiety.

    A really great listen. I absolutely love the geekness (is that a word?), charm and wit of the lovely Felicia Day. Highly recommended.

    "Brilliant - absolutely fantastic"
    Would you consider the audio edition of You're Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) to be better than the print version?

    Oh yes, because Felicia Day is reading it - her personality just shines through more. Love her.


    What does Felicia Day bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    the true voice of the author in how she wanted it to sound. its written in a way you can hear her, but to actually hear her say the words brings life to it.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The whole book is soo funny. I am geek of similar age and all her references just remind me of a kid growing up in the preinternet days.
    she is quite inspiring, despite her inner voice judging herself (we all do it) she just goes for it and tries really hard.
    I love Joss & he's opening sentiments are just lovely.
    You can't not love her.
    She is a true hero for women today.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't usually read or listen to biographies, but as a friend recommended it - i would also recommend it too. Funny, witty, intelligent and very realistic. There's no standing on ceremony. Having seen some of vlogs and #SPNcon videos - you can see its just her in the words.

    "For all weird geeky girls who never quite fit in."

    always nice to know that build a bear induces crippling anxiety in others - today my friend had to pick out a notebook for me...

    a great story, well told and encouraging to a weird geeky girl with a love of folk music that never quite managed to fit in in 'normal'.

    a must listen to anyone with imposter syndrome, a love of gaming or an interest in all things geeky and anxiety driven.

    "Wonderfully inspiring"

    Loved this quirky, honest and touching work by Felicia Day. The stories of childhood Dragons experiences made me chuckle whilst on the tube, yet a revealing account of her struggle with emotional and physical issues made me pause in the middle of the street (annoying all of the people behind me) and listen to the chapter till the end staging on that same spot.

    Get it, love it. 5 stars

    If you're a fan of Felicia Day, this purchase is a no-brainer. It's a biography, diary and success manual, all wrapped into one perky package - narrated by the always entertaining Codex herself.

    "Inspired"

    Been a fan of Felicia Day for a while. I am not a gamer but a woman in technology. I want to find a way to use technology to make a difference in disadvantaged communities...the book is inspirational in that it makes it seem like anything is possible if you believe in your dream. Thanks Felicia for the inspiration!

    "Absolutely Outstanding"

    This book is like a peak into the amazing life of Felicia Day. You get to go along on this journey with her as she shows you all the highs and lows she has been through, and how she's been able to rise above any obstacle in her way. In this book she also tackles problems about the verbal bulling and abuse people receive online, taking a stand against the trolls. I found this book uplifting and it left a warm glow in my heart. Would definitely recommend to anyone of any a age or gender, as it is funny, emotional and an absolute delight to read :)
