And now I have to go to work. How can I be expected to work in such an emotional state? Can I call out and say, “I’m sorry, I can’t come in today, I just read an amazing book and I need some time to recover”?
In which John announces that thanks to the awesomeness of nerdfighteria, his book The Fault in Our Stars will be published sooner than previously thought: January 10, 2012. Also, I’ll be signing every copy of the 150,000 first printing, which is gonna take a while. But thank you for your support, nerdfighters. You’re made of awesome.
Somewhat off topic: Guys. Guys. Guys. Guys. I am tumbling FROM AN AIRPLANE. LIke, one that is currently UP IN THE SKY. Anyway, I hope you like my new video.
The vlogbrothers have done a lot for their nerdfighter fanbase, but this is one of the more impressive ones. They’ve done a lot of impressive things in general, of course, but those are usually a COLLECTIVE effort that we participate in and help make happen. This feels like something JOHN is doing for US, which makes me feel appreciated as a loyal fan. I am loyal in that I pre-ordered his book before being able to read a blurb or pick it up or touch it (like I feel the need to do with most other books), and John is thanking me by signing my copy (…along with 149,999 others).
