John Green Signs 150,000 Books

By Jason Boog Comment

With the final signature photographed above, novelist John Green ended his quixotic quest to sign 150,000 copies of his upcoming book, The Fault in Our Stars.

He left a short message on his blog: “I want to thank nerdfighteria for being so supportive, Stan Muller for doing everything other than signing, my brother for hanklerfishing, and everyone at Penguin for indulging my strange dream … if you want one of these signatures, I’d encourage you to preorder today from your local independent bookstore.”

Green will be the keynote speaker at Mediabistro’s Publishing App Expo, a conference on December 7-8 showing writers and publishers how to share their stories on tablets and other mobile devices.
