So confession time in case you never saw an earlier post I made... Despite being a Nerdfighter for several years now, knowing John was a published writer, I'm pretty sure I've been subscribed to the Vlogbrothers since before he published his first book... I've never actually read any of them.
I did see the two movies based on two of his books. The Fault in Our Stars which made me cry so much that I don't think I can manage to make it through the book. And Paper Towns which I actually enjoyed.
When the movie first came out in theaters the book was everywhere. Once I finally watched the movie and decided that was the book I wanted to read, I couldn't find it anywhere anymore.
Well today I went to a Barns and Noble out of town since there aren't really any local book stores... well not ones like that, there's a few little shops that sell used books but not likely to find anything in there. Anyway... I finally found a copy. They also had Looking for Alaska and the previously mentioned tear jerkier.
Another reason I wanted to get the book is from what I've heard the ending was changed for the movie version and while I generally enjoyed the movie I did not care for the way it ended. I'm kinda hoping that the book has an ending I'll actually like. I don't actually know what the difference is between the book and the movie so I'll find that out eventually. I'm going to try to read it over the next few weeks. I usually read a chapter a day, some times two or three at once if I'm really into the story. I haven't really looked to see how long it is but just from the size I'm guessing I should finish it before Halloween... which now that I think about is kind of an odd choice for a book to read just before Halloween when it's not a horror. They did have other books like It which has a new movie now but my ex is already afraid of clowns and she'd never let me bring that anywhere near her. lol
Anyway... so since I'm making this thread to talk about the first John Green book I'm starting to read I want to know...
What's the First John Green book you read?
How long did it take it from when you first found the Vlogbrothers YouTube channel to when you finally picked up one of his books? (If you don't remember exactly just use your best estimate. That's all I did cause I don't really remember exactly how long I've been a subscriber.)
And third question, just out of curiosity... has anyone found his books first and then gone to the YouTube channel from there? I'd be interested to see how many people picked up his books not knowing who he was.
Ni, peng, nee-wom! Ecky, ecky, ecky, pakang, zoom-ping! Baa weep grahna weep ninny bong!
