So, the librarian in my town went to ALA (I think in June?) and got a copy of Paper Towns which she wonderfully lent to me under the condition that I wrote her a review. I've never really written a review before so I apologize if it's a little weird...and I probably would have written it differently for the nerdfighters but if you're interested: here it is!

I'm very sorry that it has proved impossible to organize nerdfighter gatherings in Scandinavia; I will do it next time, but this time has just been crazy busy. The catcher video will come right when I get back next week; ive… Continue
In which John applies peanut butter to his face while discussing the apparently-still-going-on war between Russia and Georgia over the semi-autonomous regions of South Ossetia and Abkhazia. Anything to keep you people interested.
