I just watched John Green's video blog of October 16, 2007 in which he displays his extensive home library.
Which prompted me to think to myself...
"I want a home library so much!!!"
I've got two bookshelves in my small apartment, and I have to share them with my…Continue
I'm Kelsey, and I want to talk about walking.
It's been very nice the past couple weeks over here in Michigan and I decided to take a walk up to library. The library is about a mile and 1/2 from my house, not too bad.
I walk this mile and half and each time I go (5 times this week) I get yelled at by boys in cars. Saying stuff like
"Nice boobs hot ass"
Or just the honking of the…Continue
so this is going to be short I think it would be quite productive of us as a community to gather educational videos and what not and collect them all into a virtual library that is sorted by subject and in order you should watch them, this would include channels like Crash course, some Vsauce, minutephysics, and more ! I think this would be a great idea because if something like this was available to everyone we could do things like help home schooled kids and their parents or help the…Continue

Hello fellow nerdfighters! :)
I've noticed that my book collection is severely disorganized. It's horrendous! I've been inspired by the earlier videos of John Green to reorganize my entire book collection. Today is the first day of that project. I've successfully cleared a lot of shelf space in order to make room for all the new books I've bought (my friend just got me a copy of the Handmaid's Tale).
I've decided that I'm going to my books into the…Continue

(It occurred to me while editing that you are not actually able to confirm that I ever put on pants.) In which John travels to Amsterdam--where he lived for two months while finishing The Fault in Our Stars--to promote the Dutch edition of the book. Along the way he visits places that were important to him and to the made-up people in his novel, including the Spui Square,…Continue

In which John discusses cooties, cuties, whales, Moby Dick, and fish while visiting an aquarium. He also talks about things that are both fun and hard without making a single that's what she said joke.
Hey, ARE YOU A SPORTSRACER? Ze Frank inspired us to start videoblogging, and in the best news ever, he is bringing his show back:…Continue

Listen, Jena, I’ve really been enjoying the Nook I got for Christmas (thanks, Mam and Dad). Three dollars and five minutes got all Mark Twain’s books onto this little eReader. I love our apartment full of actual books, though, so I thought I should figure out whether or not eReaders are going to ruin books. Also I photographed my newly organized library. You married into this.
Maybe the internet crippled the music industry,…Continue
If you need something to read between now and TFiOS, I have written a few other books, including Looking for Alaska: http://dft.ba/-looking4alaska An Abundance of Katherines: http://dft.ba/-aokatherines and Paper Towns: http://dft.ba/-1h5U

I just renewed my library card last week and can't decide what to read; I've already checked out the Watchmen Graphic Novel Collection (YAY) and Wednesday Wars by Gary Schmidt (It's a really great book so far!), I also have Paper Towns on hold so I can read it for the first time EVER.
Anyway, I was wondering if anyone had some particularly good authors, books, or series you think I should look into checking out. I really like drama, horror, and fiction but…Continue

I quite like kid's books. Lauren Child, Hilary McCay, Those Terry Pratchetts for younger readers, Roald Dahl... the list goes on...
But at my local library, my choice afternoon hangout, (No John Green yet though) there's one guy who kinda stands out. His name is Eoin Colfer, and I believe you have him over the pond... anyway, his books are hard to get into, but when actually interested, the rest of reality goes ghjfghj.... and fades away. And there's more. The books feature…Continue

So I went to the library the other day. Not because I was looking for books, but because my computer DIED on me and I needed to get online. Unfortunately, it seemed fate was not on my side and every last computer was taken. But was fate REALLY against me?
I decided to go to the young adult section and the first thing I see it John Green's Looking for Alaska. I just finished reading An Abundance of Katherines and figured "why not?" and picked it up.

I finished The Fellowship of The Ring! Hooray! But I got a bit huffy with the ending. OK, I was huffy for a long time...
So, I walked into school, and happily join in a conversation about Harry Potter, which ended with The Great Books vs Movies Debate, so I chipped in with my piece, and...
Lord Of The Rings is a book, too?
YES. Yes, oh poor, deprived, uncaring child, Lord of The Rings is very definitely a book too. I kinda felt a little bad, so…Continue
Encyclopedia Idiotica: Part 1…
My school library's budget got cut (by a lot) which means that we can't get as many new books as we had hoped. My librarian has found a space in the budget to get some new novels, and has asked me to find some fantasy and science fiction novels that teens would enjoy and actually read.
SO NERDFIGHTERS! this is where you come in! if you have suggestions for books (even if they are not fantasy/sci fi) that would be good for my library, please tell me!
Good evening Nerdfighters, It's Sunday.
The entirety of this blog is completely unconnected between topics and comes to you in four parts (:
I need to go to the library tomorrow to return Will Grayson, Will Grayson so that it won't be overdue and the librarians in my new town won't have any reason to dislike me, I figured I should pick up some new books anyway. To be honest, I need to read my summer reading books, The Curious Case of Dr. Jekyll and…Continue
