Imagining the future is a kind of nostalgia. (…) You spend your whole life stuck in the labyrinth, thinking about how you’ll escape it one day, and how awesome it will be, and imagining that future keeps you going, but you never do it. You just use the future to escape the present.

We love these Banned Books Week literary mug shots created by Kate Boryeskne, especially the one she made of Alaska Young from Looking for Alaska. We got these from her website. It’s so great when literature inspires other great art—yet another reason why the freedom to read is so important!

Books are a weird collaboration between author and reader: You trust me to tell a good story, and I trust you to bring it to good life in your mind.

She’s just playing a trick on us. This is just an Alaska Young Prank Extraordinaire. It’s Alaska being Alaska, funny and playful and not knowing when or how to put on the brakes.

Thomas Edison’s last words were ‘It’s very beautiful over there’. I don’t know where there is, but I believe it’s somewhere, and I hope it’s beautiful.

I DID A THING YOU GUYS. fishingboatproceeds (John Green) has impacted my life more than I can even express in words. I’ve learned important things from not only his YouTube videos, but also his books. And I am unironically enthusiastic about this tattoo. Don’t Forget to Be Awesome

This is the special 10th Anniversary edition of Looking for Alaska, available for preorder as of like five minutes ago. The cover was designed by the great Rodrigo Corral, and the book will contain a new introduction, an extensive Q&A, notes from editor Julie Strauss-Gabel about the revision process, an updated essay by me about last words, and several deleted scenes from the early drafts of the book.
It’s hard to believe that ten years have passed. I feel so lucky that Alaska is still in print and still finding readers (some of whom were in preschool when it was first published). Thanks to everyone who has read it and shared it this past decade, and I hope you enjoy the anniversary edition!
