John Green: Choose Your Gods Wisely

If you don’t follow publishing or bookselling news, you probably have no idea that BookExpo America (BEA) took place last week in New York City. Someday in the near future, I hope to be a featured author meeting and greeting my readers and my literary idols at BEA.  In the meantime, I’ll just watch this vlog from one of my most favoritest authors of all time, John Green, and live vicariously.

If you don’t feel like watching John Green “geek out” with some amazing authors, I’ll just give you this quote to think about:

In our hyper-secular world, worship is still inevitable, but it’s vital to remember that our gods don’t choose us; we choose them. I could have chosen a mob wife. Sure glad I chose [Jeffrey] Eugenides.

  1. I’ve never read his books, because I don’t read much contemporary and his books never sound like something I want to read, though I think I might try An Abundance of Katherines one day. But I have long enjoyed his yuotube videos. He’s just got so much…energy.

  2. An Abundance of Katherines was great. If that’s the only one that calls to you, then go for it. Honestly, his latest book – The Fault in Our Stars – was my least favorite of his collected works. (Sorry, John! I still think you are a SUPER GENIUS) But Paper Towns is absolutely hysterical. I could not put it down. It’s my absolute favorite of John’s novels, the one I advocate to anyone who will listen (obviously). I mentioned Paper Towns over on Cathy C. Hall’s blog and her response told me she enjoyed reading it too. Just sayin.
