The book launches in New York City!


Be the first to get your copy of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, signed by the author!

If you're going to be in the New York area on February 24th or 25th, there will be three book signings.

On February 24th, I'll be signing books from 4:00 - 5:30 p.m. at the New York Comic Con. Tickets to Comic Con have sold out for Saturday, but if you already have a ticket, please drop by the Harry N. Abrams booth!

On February 25th, I'll be signing books from 10:00 - 11:00 a.m. at the Comic Con. Tickets to the convention are still available for Sunday.


Then, at 1:00 p.m., I'll be signing books at Books of Wonder in Manhattan. This event is open to the public, and is FREE to attend!

This is your first chance to get the book, which is not yet in stores. I hope to see you at one of these events!

I love this book thingy so much at times it seems sort of dorky(that's probably because I'm a teenager) but other times it can be hilarious. Keep up the good work(to the writer) and have fun all you fun loving kids that read "Diary of A Wimpy Kid"!

I've always wanted to know something about the journal. I've always wanted to know if it was based of of your life at his age or if you just made it up?It is kind of hard to belive it would be based off of a true story because there is just 1 bad thing after another but I really want to know. So any chance I get I want to know.

OOH this is the best thing on the web!!! I'm serious... and I've been almost EVERYWHERE. so far nothing has made me laugh as much as this has. and since I love love LOVE laughing, this is gold to me. No. It's PLATINUM! I live in Cali, so I can't get one of those books (signed by the author, how awesome!), but if it was near here I would be the first one in line. I have read this more than I have read some of my books at home! I still laugh though. when something can make you laugh even after you've read it a hundred times, you KNOW it's good.
Anyway, I just wanted to ask the author to PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make another one!!! Every single DAY I come out here looking for a new entry or maybe even a sequel but I still only find the same thing. disappointed, I start rereading the hilarious antics of Greg Heffley. Five minutes later, I find myself doubling over with laughter and cracking up so much I can't breathe.
"Someone give me water, please!"
;)

Peace out. Stay cool while I go write my English paper.

I absolutly LOVE this journal.It makes me laugh all the time.I've read it thousands of times.It just keeps getting better and better.I can tell it's funny because my brother (who's 15 and only laughs when we make hilarious faces)laughs anytime he reads it!My dad also laughs when I tell him about a part.It always cheers my friends up when they're sad.I just show them the first day and they laugh histarically.I would like to beg to the author PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEEEEEEEEEASE MAKE ANOTHER ONE SOON!!I read that there will be more but I wan't to read a new one soon.I check everyday for a new one but always end up dissapointed.When I find out there are no more I just pick up where I left off last.I laugh every time I read a day.I just can't stop laughing.Most of the time I laugh so hard I can't breath.And the weird part is that I laugh even when Im not reading because I remember something funny.I just NEED a new one so I don't expect what's coming next.I really hope I can read more.I thank you for taking the time to read this.
thanx.
now I need to do my reading homework so bye.
