The TV series is airing this fall, and Nicholas will be featured in one of the episodes—be sure to tune in and also to vote for THE NOTEBOOK as The Great American Read! You can vote here and learn more about the series and the competition here.

Be sure to check out this article on the series from TV Insider, which asks some of the authors nominated for The Great American Read which books they can't stop re-reading. Take a look at Nicholas's answer:

"It is impossible for me to choose just one work of fiction because I always find myself revisiting the books of Stephen Kingin fact, I’ve read every single one. From The Shining to Lisey's Story to Different Seasons, these books teach me more and more about telling stories and writing characters each time I read them, and they have helped to define the kind of writer I want to be."

We are so excited that Nicholas and his incredible novel have been honored with this nomination, alongside so many other timeless and beloved books. You can read more about THE NOTEBOOK's nomination along with some fun facts and quotes from the book here. Congratulations, Nicholas!
