How To Fall In Love With A Book

In the modern landscape of publishing, the internet and its decentralized nature has made publishing your book easier than ever. This means even writers with relative little experience but large audiences could be able to publish their works.

Take John Greene for example. Although more well known for his hit educational YouTube series, Crash Course, he has also become a sucessful award-winning writer for his Young Adult novel, The Fault in Our Stars in 2012.

This book recieved critical acclaim for its mature themes, relatable character, and powerful story. But a major part of the books sucess was thanks to John Green himself. He clearly has a strong understanding of wiritng and is a huge book-lover himself. Because of that, his style and ideas show how well he understands the experience and excitement of opening up a new book and enjoying it for the first time.

Its not just the action of reading, its an entirtely different experience to read a book you just click with. And its an entirely different matter to have someone that understands that feeling who you can talk to.

That is the same experience Hazel, the 16-year old main character feels throughout the book. Despite her hardships or perhaps because of them, Hazel is an avid reader who enjoys reading and feels a sense of power in the books she reads. She doesn’t just enjoy them, she feels a need to share and talk about them. Its this love that allows her to form bonds with other characters, including her love interest August.

This unique love of reading is perfectly summed up with this quote.

“Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.”

-John Green, Author
