Nerdy or just shy?

In college, my geeky friends and I would endlessly parse the meanings of the words nerd, geek, dweeb, dork, twit, and so on. We felt that we had the fine distinctions between these categories down to a science.

Now that I've read both American Nerd: The Story of My People by Benjamin Nugent and Introvert Power by Laurie A. Helgoe, I have come to the realization that I am a shy, dorky, SF-loving Nerd Groupie and Children's Literature Geek - but alas, I am not a nerd.
