Why Fish Don’t Exist is SO GOOD

Commander Odinstark says:

I got a McDonald’s ad for the first time in ages after watching this

AwesomeTyme says:

How fast do you read books?!

Ryan Davis says:

Finished Why Fish Don't Exist. Loved the book so much. Thanks for the recommendation

Patti Tucker says:

In the same vein as "I Am Still Alive" is "The Hatchet" by Gary Paulsen. Very good read. As is it's sequel.

Khaled Kassem says:

"-another non-fiction book I've loved in these times: The Cholera Years."
Did anyone else catch that? Was that on purpose?!

Richie says:

he is drinking the stars!

Sophie MacDonald says:

I'm halfway through listening to Why Fish Don't Exist (on Libro.fm, which is a great way to get great audiobooks without creating trillionaires!) and I think I know why John likes it: I weep openly every few minutes. It's also read by the author, who could make me sob by reading her shopping lists to me.

Emily Newhouse says:

The thing that got me out of bubble of constant video game playing to deal with anxiety was taking improv classes again (virtual) and a fairy tale literature class i found out about through Enchanted Living Magazine called Rapunzels Circle: Finding Enchantment in Quarantine. It made me so happy. And there was a facebook community as part of the class. Connecting over our magical assignments like finding a corner of your "tower" that's beautiful and makes you happy or learning about the history and symbolism of a plant in your vicinity was the bridge back to me feeling good again.

GHANGSHON NYIZER says:

anyone come here from crash course?

Claudia Jade says:

John: “I wanna know what you’re reading to help you” me: “I’m reading your books so idk if that’s gonna be a revelating fact to anybody”

Kyoshi's Fan says:

i didn't realize john green is that old lol

J S says:

Have you read Johnathon Livingston's Seagull. Short read but very meaningful. It was huge in the 1970.
