Nerdfighter Book Recommendations!

I'm a huge fan of Hank and John Green, the "vlogbrothers." On their various YouTube channels, the brothers Green have taught me about biology and world history, science and literature, and reams of interesting things about human nature and general knowledge. On their main channel, author John Green recently featured a series of book recommendations. Check it out below, and then follow the links to see their various channels. I guarantee you'll find something that interests you! I've also included links to all of the books mentioned in the video. links to the books in the video:
