Stephen Colbert Shares His Definition of ‘Young Adult Book’ With John Green

Last night, John Green appeared on The Colbert Report TV show. During the interview, Stephen Colbert shared his definition for “young adult novel” which is: “a regular novel that people actually read.”

How would you rank Colbert’s interpretation for accuracy? The video embedded above contains the entire conversation where the two also discussed all the tears and “feels” that The Fault in Our Stars induces, the popular movie adaptation, and the Vlogbrothers YouTube channel that John oversees with his brother Hank.

Recently, both Colbert and Green have spoken up for the traditional publishing industry as Hachette continues to negotiate with Amazon in the ongoing dispute. Neither party mentioned this issue during their chat. Where do you stand on this matter? (via Shelf Awareness)
