    Nerdfighters Unite: Hank Green’s An Absolutely Remarkable Thing is the Next B&N Book Club Pick 

    Of the many wondrous effects the rise of internet culture has had on the world, perhaps the most delightful is the Rise of the Nerd, led by folks like Hank Green. Along with his brother, John (author of smash hit YA novels including The Fault in Our Stars), Hank has racked up nearly two billion YouTube views across sixteen separate web series, include Vlogbrothers, Crash Course, and SciShow—all while running the hugely popular Nerdfighteria web page and newsletter and several other blogs and companies, all of which share that Big Nerd Energy that is the Green brand.

    Unlike his older brother, Hank hasn’t published a novel—until now. An Absolutely Remarkable Thing hits bookstore shelves on September 25, and it’s coming in hot with a lot of advance excitement. Because we know it’s going to be a book everyone will be talking about, and because we want to be in on that discussion, we made it our next Book Club pick. Here’s why we can’t wait to read and discuss An Absolutely Remarkable Thing—and why you should join us.

    The Plot

    Twentysomething April May encounters a bizarre sculpture resembling a Transformer wearing samurai armor. Her friend Andy records her climbing onto it and posts it to the internet. By morning, April has become #famous as the first person to discover the statues—eventually dubbed “Carls”—which have mysteriously appeared all over the world. Her life changes rapidly as she’s swept into the whirlpool of viral fame—and into the quest to discover where the Carls came from, and what they might mean. Green, no stranger to being internet famous, is exploring how that fame twists and chops reality and peoples’ lives, and we can’t wait to read his take.

    The Influences

    Green has cited Frank Herbert’s classic science fiction novel Dune as a major influence on the book; considering that what we know of the plot isn’t so Dune-like, we can’t wait to analyze where Herbert’s novel might have guided Green’s hand. Green has also said that since the book is, at its core, a mystery, he read a lot of Harry Bosch novels to prepare, and that he got a lot of advice from none other than fantasy author Patrick Rothfuss.

    The Design

    To start with, the cover is awesome, but the book’s appeal as a physical object goes beyond that: Hank had a lot of input into its overall design, recruiting artist Jason Markow (known as TEKSTartist) to design its endpages. (Markow detailed how that happened and how he developed the final work over at his blog). It’s rare for an author to be that involved in the visual presentation of their work, and makes having a physical copy of it even more rewarding

    So, color us excited. We want to download this book directly to our brains and then spend the next few weeks eating snacks and discussing it with everyone. The third B&N Book Club is scheduled for Wednesday, October 24—see you there!

    Thank You, Teachers: Barnes & Noble Presents August Educator Appreciation Days 

    In celebration of all that school teachers and administrators do for local communities, Barnes & Noble would like to do something extra for them in return—and just in time for back to school season.

    All year, Barnes & Noble offers educators 20% off school supplies. But during our Educator Appreciation Days, kicking off this Saturday, August 4, we will have special discounts at stores nationwide for all pre-K-12 public, private, and homeschool teachers and administrators, every Saturday and Sunday throughout the month of August. The celebration includes 25% off most books, toys, games, music, and more, 10% off select tech tools and all Café consumable purchases, and limited-time giveaways from Sterling Publishing (while supplies last). The offer will also be valid at BN.com the weekend of August 25 and 26.

    “We are thrilled to announce Barnes & Noble’s August Educator Appreciation Days, which give teachers and administrators the opportunity to get the supplies they need at a great value right in time for the new school year,” says Tracy Vidakovich, Vice President of Business Development. “At Barnes & Noble, we think it is important to recognize teachers and administrators for all they do, and we do so all year long. For the past nine years, through our free Barnes & Noble Educator Discount Card Program, we have given educators 20% off list price on most in-store and online purchases for classroom use throughout the year, and an additional 25% off during special appreciation events.”

    Teachers can take advantage of these special savings by applying for a Barnes & Noble Educator Discount Card. Forms are available in store or can be downloaded online.

    In addition to our year-round discount and August Educator Appreciation Days, Barnes & Noble also has a full week of Appreciation Days lined up October 6–14, to continue our support of teachers during the school year.

    Administrators and teachers may also inquire about Barnes & Noble’s partnership programs on bookfairs to help raise funds, while also hosting events throughout the school year to help make reading more fun and accessible for children and families across the country.

    *Discount exclusions can be found in the Educator Program Terms and Conditions. Educators must present a valid Barnes & Noble Educator Discount Card to receive discounts in-store.
