That’s the thing about cake…it demands to be eaten.

This is the most brilliant thing out of all things that are brilliant.

I ate the cake the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once…

REBLOGGING BECAUSE I LIKE THE COMMENTS

Oh, I wouldn’t mind, Birthday Cake. It would be a privilege to have my target weight broken by you.

It’s a metaphor. You put the tasty thing right between your teeth, but you don’t give it the power to be delicious.

I saw this little charm at my local Barnes & Noble today.

Apparently a ton of B&Ns have John displays now; how awesome is that?!

I’m a little sad that Katherines isn’t there. I’m going to pretend that it’s because a bunch of people bought them.

I SHIT YOU NOT EVERY OTHER PAGE IS MISPRINT AND JUST THE Q&A IN THE MIDDLE OF THE BOOK. YOU HAVE NO IDEA IM GOING TO ACTUALLY CRY. THIS IS ALMOST BECOMING UNREADABLE

It’s ok. It’s ok. Breathe. Now:

Take it to your nearest Barnes and Noble. Go to the customer service desk - not the checkout. Show them your book and have your receipt or a printout of your order confirmation. Use a few words to explain, but be calm (if sad and confused) and don’t cuss. They will probably go “…huh. That’s. That’s just weird.”

97% probability of you walking out of there with a new copy. 21% chance you will get to keep the messed up one, too.

Godspeed.

How John Green Won the Internet...And Tens of Thousands of Screaming Fans

Anna Minard, you are an honorary Nerdfighter.

This is a very thorough and well-researched story not just about TFiOS, but about our video projects and my other books. I also think Minard’s analysis of my skittishness around autobiographical fiction is very well argued. It made me think differently about my responsibilities as a novelist. Anyway, really cool article!

I like how the article begins with me. 

Good, good article. I squeed.

Hi, Tumblr. This is a thank you.

fishingboatproceeds:

I just found out that The Fault in Our Stars will be #1 on the New York Times bestseller list for the SEVENTH consecutive week.

This is ridiculously wonderful news, and I could never have imagined my book would have this kind of life (particularly given that none of my previous books has been anywhere on the bestseller list for even half this long).

I just want to say thank you.

Thank you for reading the book (and to the many of you who preordered it before you even knew what it was about). Thank you for responding to it with such generosity and thoughtfulness (TFiOS has more five star reviews on Amazon than all my other books combined). Thank you for sharing the book with your friends and family, extending its reach. Thank you for making fan art and fanfiction and all the amazing things that extend and deepen the thing I made. And thank you for believing in Hazel and Augustus.

Yeah!!! Congratulations, John!!

I work in a used bookshop, and a few weeks ago my friend JAred gave his extra copy to our store. Another friend of ours, Carly, came in a day or so later and I recommended it to her. She bought it.

On Sunday, I saw her for the first time since then, and one of the first things she said to me was “Oh my gosh, that was the best. Book. I was laughing hysterically and Karl was like ‘Didn’t you say that book was about cancer?’ And I said yes and he was confused, and then a few minutes later I started sobbing and he said ‘There we go. That’s what I was expecting.’”

(I paraphrased everything except for her first statement, because I do not have THAT good of a memory.)

Frank Bruni Likes The Fault in Our Stars

fishingboatproceeds:

Most of you probably don’t even know who Frank Bruni is (he is a writer for the New York Times), but this is a huge deal to me, because 1. he’s a great writer, and 2. he’s a great eater, which makes him a man after my own heart. It’s strange to me that my book would ever even make its way into his hands, let alone that he would read it and say such nice things.

Now I just have to figure out how I am going to turn this into a friendship that will involve Sarah and I eating at all the best restaurants in New York with him.

Frank Bruni on THE FAULT IN OUR STARS, “Kids, Books and a Five-Hankie Gem”

elysemarshall:

“…I admire [THE FAULT IN OUR STARS] enormously, more so than most of the adult-targeted novels I’ve read of late. And I found myself eager to share it. I bought a copy for a dear friend’s 12-year-old daughter. Then I sent a copy each to my two brothers, for them to pass on to any of their seven children who might be interested. I sent another copy to my sister, for her four kids.

Several days after the copies were delivered, my niece Leslie, 15, sent me a Facebook message that was its own powerful affirmation of reading’s blessedly stubborn allure.

“John Green is one of my favorite writers,” she said. “His book ‘Looking for Alaska’ is arguably my favorite book. It changed my outlook on life considerably. When I saw ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ on the counter, I almost passed out I was so happy. I would absolutely love to talk to you about the book once I finish.”

Few things would make me happier.”

I’m just reblogging this because Elyse Marshall, TFiOS’s publicist at Penguin whom Tour de Nerdfighting attendees will remember standing tirelessly hour after hour flapping books, is finally using tumblr.

WOOO!
