The Staying Power of John Green's Novels

A quick glance at this week's New York Times list of best-selling YA titles will make one thing very, very clear: John Green's books have been on there for a long, long time. At number one is Paper Towns, which has remained on the list for an absolutely amazing 116 weeks! (And, being honest here, it's one of his that I haven't read, but I do have a handful of students currently carrying it around).

But even more awesome is the fact that both The Fault in Our Stars AND Looking for Alaska have charted for 130 consecutive weeks. I know a lot of people felt that after the movie had come out, the sales would decline, but here we are over a year later and it is STILL on the list.
