Book lovers can now feel the Foursquare love.

Get the brand new Foursquare Badge – Bookworm – by checking into libraries and bookstores : )

Bookworm 4sq Badge

When you earn the badge , you get text that reads – “You Nerd!” ha.

Foursquare announced this badge on Twitter this afternoon – http://bit.ly/hN6Eox “For all you braniacs, get your read on. Introducing the Bookworm Badge. http://4sq.com/f8ffAB #newbadge”

For libraries - this may help libraries engage Foursquare to reward library patrons and to complement 4sq promotions. More about this in my  February 16 keynote about libraries and location based services with the Trendy Topics event about these technologies.


In other fun Foursquare news -

NASA is also now on Foursquare! http://foursquare.com/nasa And you don’t need to go to space to enjoy the NASA/Foursquare partnership. It’s a good day for nerds everywhere.

Foursquare also tweeted this today – http://bit.ly/hJlL8C – “No longer just for astronauts! Get the @NASA Explorer here on Earth; follow http://foursquare.com/NASA and visit some space sites. #newbadge”
