In Miami at Art Basel...
…which is this big contemporary art fair. I am here in my capacity as my wife’s husband, but occasionally while she is being a fancy curator, I will sneak off and buy art, which in fact I just did. Picture forthcoming if I can find one.
So so so so
bunniesormidgets: Today I went to this really awesome independent bookstore in my hometown and I asked the man working there (who had a very IN CHARGE kind of look to him) if they were going to get John Green’s new book. I didn’t even need to say the title, he immediately said “Of course! I’m really looking forward to it! He’s such a great guy.” I fkjflskjflskdjfd a little, and then mentioned...
I know where Hank and I are going on tour in...
But I can’t tell you yet. It’s frustrating. I want to tell you. But the bookstores haven’t set up ticketing, etc., so I must be a quiet little kitten.

So I know the answer to "WILL MY PREORDERED COPY...
gallifreygirl315: I know all preorders/first prints of The Fault in Our Stars are to be signed. But John only signed 150,000 copies. It seems genuinely possible that more than 150.000 people will preorder this book. So if that happens, what then, John? That will not happen. It won’t even come close to happening. The first print run includes all preorders and all copies that will be...
maureenjohnsonbooks: THE TRUTH REVEALED. Dear Internet. I apologize for this. But I have agreed to come clean about certain conversations between John Green and myself. FOR THE RECORD: I would say perfectly innocent things in live shows on YouTube and Maureen would respond with $%*& jokes. They were very funny $&*% jokes, because Maureen is among the funniest writers alive today. But...
So I'm Narrating This Audiobook...
I’m in Grand Haven, Michigan right now recording an audio version of The Fault in Our Stars. A lot of people have asked me to narrate the audiobook, and after extensive discussions with my awesome audiobook publisher, we have arrived at the following solution: There will be a real audiobook, narrated by Kate Rudd, who sounds exactly like Hazel sounds in my head, and whose audition tape...
Swindon Town Stats
stowngazette: Have you ever wondered just how good Swindon Town is now that Coach Brothers is in charge? Are you a number junkie that just has not had time to put the numbers together? Well the Gazette has dug up a statistician to provide just those numbers. We intend to have two sets of stats: Stats from the day Coach Brothers took over to present Stats for the Swoodilypoopers after they...

If Barnes and Noble indeed sells…that’s a big deal.
I have turned off asks...
because 1. tumblr’s inbox is kind of nightmarish even if you don’t have more than 9,000 unanswered messages, and 2. I have more than 9,000 unanswered messages, and I feel bad about not being able to reply to even a significant fraction of those messages. I’ll continue to follow tags related to me, my books, and chicken nuggets being analogous to family, so if you want me to see...
Christopher Paolini's Tuesday "Inheritance"... →
What’s interesting about this story is that Waterstone’s claims “tens of thousands” of preorders, which is of course a tiny fraction of what Deathly Hallows generated in 2007. The UK bookstore business has been so decimated by 1. Tesco, and 2. amazon/bookdepository that Waterstone’s is claiming their biggest success in four year off a book that presold only tens of...
