Geek Dad Book Giveaway

My hunch is many of you probably check in often with our friends over at the Geek Dad blog on Wired.com. I've always considered it one of the best parenting blogs on the Web--especially for dad _flossers. If you're not a regular, you're missing out on great posts like this one: Top 10 Helpful Hints for Geeky Dads-To-Be, written by Geek Dad editor and friend of the _floss, Ken Denmead (wish I'd read that one before I had my son!). Or how about this really well written post by one of my favorite regular contributors, Jenny Williams: Disneyland: A Great Destination For All Generations.

Today's an extra special day over at the Geek Dad blog because it's their debut into the publishing world. And we're happy to help them celebrate their first book by giving you _flossers a chance to win one of three copies Ken and his publisher have been kind enough to provide for us. Full of all kinds of cool projects you can do with your kids, the book is a must-have for any dad (hint: perfect father's day gift!) who loves to get geeky with the little ones. Some of the projects I can't wait to try with my son are: Build a Binary Calendar, Portable Electronic Flash Cards, Fly a Kite at Night, and Model Building with a Cake! (You can check out the full table of contents over at Amazon.com.)

So who's ready to win a copy? Great! HDYK? co-puzzle master Josh Halbur and I have put together a fun little series of challenges you'll have to solve before you can be considered eligible for the random drawing. We'll leave the contest open until midnight PDT tonight!

If you're accustom to playing our monthly 5-day Trivia Hunt, then you know we turn comments off so people can't accidentaly leave spoilers. Ready to get your Hunt on?

Take the Geek Dad Book challenge now!
