Question Tuesday: THE FAULT IN OUR STARS IS HERE EDITION

by on January 10, 2012

In which John discusses The Fault in Our Stars, his new book, which is OUT NOW AT BOOKSTORES EVERYWHERE. (Also at like Target and Walmart and Kroger, if you like to shop for books while shopping for toilet paper.)

Tour tickets still available in a few cities: http://dft.ba/-tourdenerdfighting2012

(For incredibly complicated reasons involving people not believing me about nerdfighteria's amazingness, some preorders--especially in Europe--are unsigned. I am solving this problem. Email me at sparksflyup-at-gmail-dot-com with your name, your address, and where you ordered the book from, and a beautiful and very very rare signed bookplate will be sent to you.)

Can i still get a signed copy from Amazon UK even though i didn’t pre-order? I’m so incredibly sad i missed the (admittedly large) pre-order phase. )’:

Congrats on TFIOS! I’ll be picking up my preorder (fingers crossed it will be signed) at my local bookstore after work today, reading it, then gifting it to a friend. This has been such a fun process to witness – thanks for bringing us along for the ride, and have a great time in your AMAZING blue bus (van?).

I didn’t pre-order but I am definitely going to buy it in stores. I was just wondering if there would be signed copies at the book stores?
*fingers crossed*

Emily, I just bought mine yesterday from an independent bookseller (not a Target or B&N) and it was a signed copy. There was as sticker right on the front saying it was signed. I guess it depends on what bookshops you have near you; you could always call them.

I pre-ordered mine for Amazon.co.uk and it came today unsigned :( I was disappionted to say the least but it’s the actual book that counts and it’s not Johns fault. Thanks so much for trying to sort it all out though and I will send you a cheeky email ;) thanks!

I didn’t catch the pre-order wave in time, so I bought my copy in the store. Next time, I’m pre-ordering a (signed?) copy and going to see you on tour!

The launch event last night was awesome. (I have expounded upon why it was awesome here: http://walktheridgepole.blogspot.com/2012/01/worldsuck-decreased-awesome-increased.html.) Thank you, John and Hank!

Got a signed copy, and about half way through the book. Love every bit of it! Emotions felt= just about all of them. Great job at making me cry!

For those in the UK, I spotted signed copies of John’s new book at Foyles on Charing Cross Road in London when I visited. I am sure you can ring them and ask if they have any more in stock.

Dear Mr. Green,
I just started reading your book TFiOS and I have to say I love it. I really love all of your books, and I love you too in a platonical way. I read the part where Hazel and Augustus are in Amsterdam (on a tram, eating dinner, sitting on a bench) and I love reading everyday Dutch things, such as sitting on the back of a bike and scanning the chip card for the tram. I think it’s a beautiful book and I can’t stop reading it! You really are my favorite author and I have all your books. My top list is:
The Fault in Our Stars
Looking For Alaska
Will Grayson Will Grayson
Let It Snow
An Abundance of Katherines
Paper Towns
I have never met another Dutch Nerdfighter, but I hope to meet one. I am half Dutch and half American BTW. And I wish I knew you were in Amsterdam because I just could have taken a train ride over there and *stalk* you. I hope you write many more books, and I hope I can finally meet you. 
With love, 
A Dutch Nerdfighter.
PS. DFTBA!

Hey, it’s almost 2:30 a.m. in Germany and i’m reading tfios which i pre- ordered but i didn’t know it was a signed copy! That’s so cool. Actually i usually wait until your books are translated into German but this time i didn’t feel like waiting. I didn’t finish the book yet but let me just say this: it won’t let me go to sleep! I guess it’s your fault if i fail the Algebra test tomorrow (i probably would have failed it anyway)!

Heard about The Fault in Our Stars on Goodreads and immediately ordered it the day it came out to read on my Kindle. I just finished it and wanted to let you know how profoundly moved I was by this book.

Thank you so much for doing these signed bookplates for those of us who didn’t receive a signed copy – I was disappointed but at least I have the book itself to devour! :) Looking forward to receiving the bookplate ^^

It’s funny that you wrote in TFiOS about four Aron Franks that died in the WOII. Because my name is Aron, I’m Dutch, and I’m Jewish! Just finished reading it. Loved it! At one point I could’nt stop crying.

Really, a fantastic book. My favorite of 2012. So far.

Sent an email yeasterday! Even imagining, due other foreign comments, that the copy woud come unsigned, it was a bit disappointing. The book itself compensated by far, though. Best wishes!

This was the best book I have ever read. Thank you for writing it.
