Omnictionary.com

by John Green on March 25, 2008

Those of you who yearn for the bygone days of the Brotherhood 2.0 Scavenger Hunt (or are looking forward to the release of my new book Paper Towns) should check out omnictionary.com, a new site Hank and I have been working on. (Click on “Major Facts” to get started; if you poke around long enough, you’ll find the answer to that question people keep asking.) If you find the Easter Egg, feel free to discuss in comments (I hope you think it’s as awesome as I do!), but please don’t spoil the hunt for others.

(To answer the question that will be asked the most: Yes, Paper Towns will have two different covers! Cool, huh?)

Já li também 2 vezes A Culpa é Das Estrelas e por aqui a estréia do filme é um sucesso cara!
Poxa mesmo sem entender nada dos comentários desta página em inglês é porque a conexão é muito lenta. Escreva alguma coisa aí para mim, qualquer coisa mesmo! John vc é demais!

just finished Paper Towns. Read it in less than two days which is a record for me. Taught me a few things. Loved it.

I have started Looking for Alaska and so far after reading John Green books my life has changed, they have thought me a lot in life which may sound over-exaggerated but for those of you that have also read his works may understand what I mean.. Paper Towns was an amazing book to read.

Dear John,
it’s currently unavailable.
Hope you fix it because it will be a great pleasure to experience such an awesome site.

P.S. I hope after filming ‘Looking For Alaska’, you may want to make a film for paper towns. :)

With great love,

Mary Cuffe July 5, 2014 at 8:04 am

Please stop with the random capitalization. You are trying to be like Margo Roth Spiegelman. You will not ever be Margo Roth Spiegelman. I am not saying this to defy your value or whatnot, but to simply tell you that Margo Roth Spiegelman is the only M.R.S that there will ever be. She is herself. Do not try to be her. A quote by Mr Green himself: “But as for me: I must ask the wounded man where he is hurt, because I cannot become the wounded man. The only wounded man I can be is me.”
You are you. You are not Margo Roth Spiegelman.
Please try to understand what Green is trying to show our generation.

GusWaters July 15, 2014 at 12:05 pm

Well said. I agree with this, I’m sure it actually says the message ‘be yourself not anyone else’ quite a few times throughout the book.
Okay?

HazelGrace July 15, 2014 at 12:07 pm

Hey just finished reading Paper Towns and I must say, IT WAS AWESOME! I can’t even tell you how much I enjoy reading your books. I’ve read Looking for Alaska and The Fault in our Stars already and I cant wait to get Will Grayson Will Grayson and An Abundance of Katherines. I also would love to read Let It Snow. My sister is on a mission to collect every single one of your books and even though i would looooovvvee to own some myself I’m not going to interfere since she is allowing me to own the entire Harry Potter and Mortal Instruments series along with The Infernal Devices. But i seriously love your books and they inspire me, and im pretty sure it’s safe to say, others too. So thanks, John Green for being you!
