"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green


Bookin' It Round the Web: John Green Edition

Everything about books intrigues me.  Because of this I'm subscribed to couple magazines, like American Libraries and the Chronicle of Higher Education, as well as a frequent troller of Publishers Weekly, NPR Books, and The New York Times Book section.   
Through these awesome resources, I've gathered a few interesting articles having to do with the book world!  I'm calling this feature Bookin' It Round the Web, and it will be periodically posted when I find some interesting news to share! 
This edition of Bookin' It Round the Web is going to be featuring John Green, the author we all know and love (or have learned about and started to love thanks to this awesome week!!).

If you haven't already figured it out, John is a pretty smart guy.  He gives really interesting interviews, and I don't really think he repeats himself as often as some authors I've read interviews about.  Just like his books, he tries to give a different perspective on things, which is so cool!

Below, I've compiled a collection of interviews all around the web!  I hope you all enjoy them as much as I did (some are even videos! Bonus!).
