    I'd been watching Vlogbrothers videos on and off for a year, but my first John Green book was "Paper Towns" and I was 18.

    24. I have read all of them in the past year, in one massive binge, but I'm not ashamed. They made awesome Christmas reading!

    Sadly I am a baby in the Nerdfighter community. I began with TFiOS last summer when I was 20. Bought it on my Kindle, finished in in 3 days, and then bought the 4 pack of his novels (including a hard copy of TFiOS) and marathoning Vlogbrothers non-stop!

    I was thirteen when I read "The Fault in Our Stars." I recently read "This Star Won't Go Out," and started thinking about the books again. What inspiring stories.... I can't even think, trying not to cry aah.

    In chronological order: TFIOS, Looking for Alaska, Paper Towns. 

    Apparently I'm a young adult.

    I was/am 15, and it was TFioS, but if I has known John before that age, I would probably have read it earlier
    i'm the same way, i got into YouTube kind of late and read it when I found them :)

    I was 13 when I read TFIOS.  It was the first book that I had read for the entire summer because I was too focused on reading Anne Frank for school.
  • TFIOS I was in year 8 or year 7 so I was about 12/13

    TFIOS when I was 14. Which lead to me reading all the other books and also vlogbrothers. :D

    I was 11 and it was An Abundance of Katherines. 

    To love, to be loved, to love always and sometimes. This is truth. 

  • I was 16 and it was Papertowns :)

    I believe I was 14, just under a year ago, when I read TFIOS. My friend had started reading it, so I did too. It was amazing. I have a curse where every time I read a book, a movie comes out a few months or so later. The TFiOS movie hadn't even been announced—I think it was announced like 3 months after I finished the book. Since then, I've read all John's books except his co-authored ones, which I haven't gotten around to yet. However, I only officially became a nerdfighter about a week ago. I read the books before finding the channel ^^ I'd seen some of their crash course videos before, though, and really liked them. So perhaps I was unofficially a nerdfighter. DFTBA!

    I was 24 and read TFiOS first. Then immediately consumed the rest of his books. That was only a little over a year ago. But what a difference a year has made after discovering Nerdfighteria! :)

    I was around 14 and I believe it was either The fault In Our Stars or Paper Towns.
