Get the book for your school library

I've noticed that a lot of libraries in Massachusetts have bought copies of Diary of a Wimpy Kid. I think that's so cool! I never considered that this book might end up in a town's library.

If you'd like to get a copy for your school, just ask your librarian, and he or she will probably order it for you!

Book signing at Books of Wonder!

If you're in the New York area this weekend, I'll be signing books at Books of Wonder on Sunday, from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.

Books of Wonder is at 18 West 18th Street in Manhattan. It's a very cool store with its very own cupcake shop inside.

There will be five other authors there ... Siena Cherson Siegel, Mark Siegel, George O'Connor, Aaron Renier, Christine Norrie, and Dave Roman. So if you like graphic novels, Books of Wonder is the place to be this weekend! Hope to see you there!

OK, the book is DEFINITELY in stores now :)

I've been to a few Borders in Massachusetts, and I've seen the books with my own eyes!

Also, my brother said he's spotted it in Tampa, Florida.

Here's a crummy cell-phone picture of a bookshelf in Boston:

In Borders, it's on Shelf F in the kids' section, "Friendship and Humor."

If you can't find the book in your local bookstore, please ask at the front desk, and they'll order it for you!

P.S. For a lot of schools, next week is Spring Break. What better way to pass the time than with a copy of Diary of a Wimpy Kid? :)

The book is in stores!!!

I'm hearing from a lot of people who say that they've been able to find the book in stores.

But some stores haven't quite gotten it yet. At the Borders near me, the book is still "in transit," which means it might be another few days.

Some people have mentioned that the book is different from what's on the web. That's true! The book on the web was 1,300 pages long. My publisher decided to split it up into three books of 224 pages each. The next two books come out in 2008 and 2009. I'm hoping there will be more books after that!

Also, the writing and pictures are a little different. And I think they're both much better. Creating a print version gave me the opportunity to improve the storytelling and drawings. I think you'll like the results!

If you're looking for the book this weekend, good luck! But if you can't find it, it should be available in a few days!

And you can always get the book here.
