13,000 Reviews & 1 Preview


***UPDATE AT BOTTOM OF POST***


Have you been to the Thirteen Reasons Why website recently? Along with the YouTube videos, Hannah's map, and podcasts, readers have been posting mini-reviews, and we're fast approaching the 13,000th review!


In honor of that upcoming milestone, I'm giving away two signed copies of the book to two of my favorite people. And one of those people could be you!

At the end of the day that we reach 13,000, I'll randomly select two people who've left comments on this post. So check back, and when I announce the winners, I'll tell you how to give me your mailing address.

And now for the preview...

This summer, Thirteen Reasons Why will finally be coming out in paperback! If you haven't already seen the announcement at Publishers Weekly, check it out. The cover has been altered slightly, leaving Hannah on the swing while replacing the background with silver foil. I can't wait to hold this shiny baby in my hands!



UPDATE:
Because a lot more people have been leaving comments than I expected, I'm going to double the amount of books being given away, so now there are four books up for grabs! And in case you aren't particularly strategy-minded, if you leave a comment here and at the above website, we'll reach 13,000 even sooner. And the sooner the contest ends, the less time others will have to enter it, making your chances even better.

Of course, I'm only saying this because I get impatient easily and I want to give the books to four of you right now!!!

Oooh! I want to win this book. It's next on my list to check out from the library (library = lame for supporting other authors, i know, but i'm working with limited means here). i just attended the NYC SCBWI conference and you were still the talk of the town. So congratulations and holy shite 13,000 reviews. go you.

all best,
Corrie Wachob

You're amazing Jay... 13k reviews on a fantastic book.

Amy B W said...

Even though we worked together promoting your book, I never did get a signed copy. Maybe this will be my chance! ~ Amy Walter

proseandkahn said...

Congratulations! 13,000 reviews is A LOT of reviews! Mindboggling, really. Finally out it ppb too!

My fave foreign cover is the one from The Netherlands.

Charlotte Armer said...

I would love to win an autographed copy of this book. I read it for the first time in summer of '09 and i've read it countless times since then. The message of the book was fantastic and the style of writing is so unique. Even though I know what happens everytime i pick it up I'm still hooked. by far one of my favorite books of all time :)

Makenna L D said...

I loved this book. I was sorry that I missed when you came to my school, but hey, I got your autograph! Though you spelled my name wrong, but that was rather amusing. Still, I loved your book and thought that the way you wrote it was amazing

Laura Nicosia said...

What a wonderful way to celebrate this milestone. I always promote your book in the Professional Development course on YAL I do. Plus, my students are using your book for their final projects this semester.

Congratulations!
Laura

Corey said...

This was a great book!

Meagan said...

Absolutely loved this book!! It is one of the books that I try to get everyone I know to read.

Laurie Johnson said...

Jay, the more I study bullying, the more I realize you hit every note in 13 R3Asons Why. Not only is in an incredible read--it is probably the best tool for sensitizing kids and teachers, and for pushing us toward a culture of intolerance--intolerance for bullying! Thanks for speaking for those who have fallen silent--and for those who will refuse to go under!

Amberdenise said...

I can't wait for the paperback to come out! I have been "dying" (not the best word to use) to use this book in a teen book club at my library, but I haven't been able to since its not in paperback yet. Thanks for writing such an amazing book! It's one of my all time favorites.

Sabrina said...

Way to go, Jay! I really enjoyed reading your book, and would love my very own copy. That silver foil cover looks great. 13k reviews is fantastic! Congrats!

Sarah P. said...

I guess waiting twelve years to get published was worth it since this is what the wait was all about! You rock!

Jayme Stryker said...

Congratulations on approaching an awesome and numerically significant milesone! :)

battle-studies said...

I love this book. It saved my life and changed the way I interact with people.

kimscarecrow said...

I've been meaning to re-read it so I can post a review on my site. I let a friend borrow it and she loved it!

Sandberg said...

It is awesome to hear that 13 Reasons Why will be in paperback soon! My students would LOVE to have an autogaphed copy. I have an autographed shoebox for my booktalks. Thanks, Jay and congratulations!!!

Mindy fangedmom said...

I would LOVE to win your book Jay! Congrats!! You had me at SHINY!

We just recently had a bullying issue with our daughter on the bus. Thank goodness for being able to keep our tempers under control & for camera's and audio on buses! The boy that was bullying our daughter will HOPEFULLY never do it again to anyone!

This book will make me cry huh?

Thanks for the chance to win!

Shannon O'Donnell said...

Wow. 13,000 reviews is quite a milestone,Jay! I would love to win a copy for my H.S. classroom. My students LOVE your book. :-)

Clare Scott said...

Message here from New Zealand - yes, W-A-Y downunder... I have just read of the phenomenal success of your book in my PW email and want very much to read it and see just why... What is it about this story, your writing, that is touching so many YA readers? (I didn't see the Kiwi cover in that colossal list from throughout the world ;-) But even if there was one, a copy would be so much better coming from the actual man who penned/typed himself into the literary history books. I could come up with 13 reasons why I want this, but it's simple really - it sounds good. I want to read it! (And I like shiny things too, especially book covers!!!) Congratulations...

oO Mariana Oo said...

An amazing book,I loved how the paperback looks, congrats on those 13,000 reviews, the book deserves it.

-Mariana S

Liana said...

so happy for you

Jessica-Domh said...

Wow, congratulations to all those reviews! Just left mine :D I <3 13 Reasons Why!

Katie said...

13000 reviews!!! Wow! I'm re-reading 13RW at the moment, I think this is the 20-something-th time I've read it...

Cass (Words on Paper) said...

Wow, congratulations, Jay! :D You remain one of my favourite YA authors, so hurry and get that new book of yours into the churner. Can't wait to read it.

I'm not sure if you'd even be willing to send internationally, so yeah . . . I guess I enter only if I can. But I'd be willing to pay off the excess fees. Anything for a signed copy of Th1rteen R3asons Why. *creepy smile*

Sandy said...

Oh pretty! I love the paperback cover. I want to get it just to put it next to my hardcover xD. And congrats on the upcoming milestone its time for some foil confetti!

Cibele Ramos said...

Nice cover!
Never read this book but I'm looking foward to it.
Congrats for the 13.000 reviews ;)

Lindsey said...

I've been dying to read this book ever since I first heard about it, would love to win a copy!

Dayse Dantas said...

WOW! This looks really great. And I'm not just saying that as in "I'll say anything to win this book", I am seriously looking forward to read this. It's one of those books that you look at the cover and you just know it's going to become one of your favorite books of all times, you know what I mean? I know, I know, we're not supposed to judge the book by its cover, but I think that only works metaphorically. Personally, I've been judging books by their cover all my life, and very rarely have I been wrong. But anyway, this book is way more about the cover, I know that. I don't even know why I broght this cover thing up. May I start over?
This book sounds great, can't wait to read it and if it's a sign copy, EVEN BETTER.
and that's that. :D

Heather Zundel said...

I have to admit, every time I went into a Barnes and Noble, I would crack open a book and watching the printing numbers climb. Really, congratulations and superb job.

lindseybousfield said...

Cool cover! Would love to win!

Jamie - I'm a guy, btw said...

Wow, 13,000 reviews...that's amazing! Congratulations on that milestone, and thanks for including us in your joy!

Miss Page-Turner said...

Hey great! The cover of your book in paperback looks soo very good, cannot wait to experience its content aswell:)

Beth S. said...

13 Reasons Why is definitely one of my favorite YA books of all time. I also enjoyed listening to the audio version. Awesome narrators.

Ana Lucia said...

First of all: Congratulations! I've heard lots of great things about your book but can't find it in my country. Hope I win one of these. And I love the coverS! All of them.

Congrats on the impending birth of your new paperback!

Bwyatt said...

I really loved this book. I think all high school kids should be required to read it b/c I really thing it could change a lot of lives. So congrats on everything, and thanks for such an introspective look at the effects of bullying.

Gray said...

One of my HS students asked me to order this book. Read the reviews and I have to get this book in our library asap !

ladystorm said...

Wow, thats really cool about almost getting 13,000 reviews. Congratulations! I haven't read this book but I have heard a little about it and would love to try it. So crossing my fingers in hopes of winning!

lisa said...

13RW is SO worthy of 13k reviews and MORE! Congratulations, sir. :)

Here's to hoping I win the paperback!

Elaine AM Smith said...

Congratulations. I would LOVE to win your book Jay! I was reading reviews last night. If I don't win I'll be parting with genuine money - that is even more SHINY! ;)

Teril said...

I think these kinds of books are very valuable for teens since they broach topics that might be hard to talk to adults on. I would love to have a copy.

Kaya H said...

This has been on my TBR I cannot wait to read it. I think the topics addressed in 13k are valuable and from what I have read on it in reviews, I wish I had a copy when I was a teen and going through problems.
Thank you for putting copies out there for us readers.

I've been wanting to read 13 Reasons for a while but just haven't had a chance to and now after reading what my friend posted today (http://www.wastepaperprose.com/2011/02/reading-therapy.html) i want to even more. Books to impact you in so many different ways and i love that books like 13 Reasons exist in the world!

Congrats on this totally crazy milestone!

Anni said...

I missed a chance to get my copy signed last year due to . . . erm, being suicidal (seriously), so this is awesome!

Nikki (Wicked Awesome Books) said...

I read this book last year and it changed how I look at life. It is incredible...if I can cut my review down, I will post the mini-review version of it on the website.

I'm looking forward to getting the paperback copy!

I don't know if I can post a comment for my participation because I am living in France, but I hope it.
Even if I will not win the book, I will buy it soon !
Thank you !

PS : sorry if my english is not good...

Elia said...

Oh my goodness! I've been wanting to get this book for AGES! Since it came out, but I can never seem to find it it paperback for some reason... Is it out in paperback?? I don't like hardback books 1)because they're more expensive and 2) because 85% of my books are in paperback and I don't want to show any favoritism to certain authors by getting their books in hardback :)

I WANT THIS BOOK!

Stephanie Rodakowski said...

As a high school English teacher, I have to say that I was blown away by this book! Never before have I read a book that really made me stop and think about how I can help change the bullying in our high schools! I will be reading this to my class because I think with all of the bullying and hate that is going on in this world, I think it is so important for students (or anyone for that matter) to take a step back and think about how their actions effect others. I would LOVE a copy of this book so that I can share the beauty of it with my classroom!
Thank you!
Stephanie

I would love, love, love to get a copy of this book. I read it for the first time a few months ago when I happened accross it at the library. I love it when I randomly pick up a book and it works its way onto my list of favorites. This book was compelling, heartwrenching, and had me reading with my mouth hanging open ( :O ). Thank you for such an excellent story!

This book was so amazing. It made me shed tears and understand depressed teens. Also it has changed my view on other people. It helped me better myself to help more people and defintly when they look sad and lonely. Smiles and laughter is tha best medichne and being a friend could change someones life.

One of the best books I have ever read. Ever! And I read like I breathe - all the time! It would be amazing to receive one of the books. I loved this book; it was just so...indescribable!

Way to go, Jay! I really enjoyed reading your book, and would love a copy that hasn't been destroyed.

Ashley said...

I thought this book was AMAZING! So powerfully written. I really liked the original cover, but think the PB cover is beautiful, maybe even better than the HC. It has a much more melancholy feel to it.

Kristina said...

This book looks super interesting, I would love to win it!!! Can't wait to read it!!!!

Miss Everything said...

This book as made me look at own life and wonder how far I've come from being like the main character. 13 Reasons Why is such a great book because it could happen to anyone and most of the people around them wouldn't understand the reasons behind that person's actions. I've shown this book to other people I know that have struggled with depression and suicide and they feel in love with this book to the point that they started turning their lives around. I would love to own this book in remembrance that I'm a strong young women who can help others make it through this world because of a book.

I've been wanting to read this book for a long time now, but every time i go to get the book it never seems to be there or i just completely miss it. and this book must be amazing if it almost has 13,000 reviews!

Jenni said...

I loved this book. My cousin was reading it so i read the back... and then the first page... and the the first five chapters. When I had to go home, I went straight to the library and got it out. It was absolutely amazing.

I love your book, but I got it from the library and don't own it. It'd be great to get a copy. :)

And the paperback cover looks awesome!

Veronika Washington said...

I loved this book soo much! I think you should write a sort of spin off or sequel to the story. Maybe a secret 14th reason why that none of us knew about or maybe her parent's reaction to her death.

rubyred3x31 said...

i can relate to this book, ppl need to know that the little things do matter to people, im still here because of this book and congrats on all the reviews, u deserve it :)

JesiMarie said...

I actually picked this book up the other day because someone on a blog I read said it was a really good book. And it really was! I actually stayed up all night reading it because I could not put it down. I have never before read a book in one night, but I HAD to know what was going to happen next, why Clay was on the tapes, and I secretly wanted her to be alive just living secretly in another town with her parents. Sadly, that wasn't what happened, but I still absolutely LOVED this book. I passed it off to my roommate and she read it in a day and loved it as well. It was very touching and very life altering. I don't think I can give enough praise to this book.

Jennifer Goetz said...

I loved this book like I loved 'If I Stay,' sometimes you just need a beautiful cry.
Choose me (:

Christine said...

I just want to say i absolutly love this book (it's my favourite)it really changes how you veiw the world. fantastic writing

I LOVE this book. This book made me care more about people no matter how mean they are to me, how friendly they are, or if they don't know me. You shouldn't judge people too quickly.

God must be very proud of you because you've created such a beautiful masterpiece called Thirteen Reasons Why. It's more than a story of a girl committing suicide, it's a life changer. When I read it, I was going through a time in my life where I barely had any friends. It had inspired me to look to the people that are ostracized. So, that I may reach out to these people.

I had recently given my own copy to my friend who has dealed with anything from suicidal thoughts to cutting herself. She's nearly done with your book, and she's already making an impact at our school. A friend of our's has been a target for bullying at our school recently. She even told me, one day at lunch, that she'll commit suicide if I leave her at lunch. That day everyone at lunch left her, but I stayed and comforted her(along with the friend who I just gave the book to).

My friends keep on telling me how stupid some people are. I always respond on how that person doesn't need to be treated that way. That we need to love one another, like Our God has loved us. They'll always look at me with that look in their eyes. "Who do you think you are?" It's a good question, but I know who I am. I am a human being with emotions. I cry just like other people. Furthermore, I used to be one of those that cry every night. Now, I smile in the hope that I might be able to help someone through their days.

Teenagers are captured by the thought that no one like them. I've been through my fair share of bullying. Possibly I've been through it more than anyone else, but I'm not the one to say so. It doesn't matter how much I've been knocked away from the crowd. What matters is how much I affect people and how I affect people. Am I burning people to the point where they are ready to commit suicide or am I helping people rise out of such a drought like that?

Jay Asher, you have inspired me to write a moving book. I have always been a writer. However, after reading your novel I realize I have to write to inspire. I inspire people in my daily life, but inspiring people through writing is another thing. I adore Thirteen Reasons Why so much that I wrote a book report on it. After my friend finishes reading the book, I expect her to also pass on the book. After finishing the book myself, I initially thought of sending the book anonymously to a girl who made me lose all my popularity and ruined my life. Instead, I decided to just transform my middle school with the power of beautifully crafted words against suicide.

As you can tell, your book is absolutely my favorite. I don't mind if I don't win it. I'd rather someone who hasn't read the book yet recieve it. In that case, they'll pass the book on in their city. A movement can begin anywhere, and it can begin with anyone. I'm sure that your family never thought you'll begin a movement, Jay, but you did. Your book is a total blessing.

Congrats on recieving almost 13,000 reviews. Your famous now. xD Best wishes to the upcoming care takers of the autographed paperbacks!

With Love,
Savannah

I love this book. I have passed it onto so many people but I unfortunately lost my copy when I lent it out and it was not returned. I would love to have a signed copy. I am looking forward to this movie as well!
