John Green surprised Vlogbrothers viewers with a big treat on Tuesday: A reading of the first chapter of Turtles All The Way Down.

As he begins to promote his first book since 2011’s The Fault in Our Stars, Green decided to get intimate with his fans by reading the first chapter on camera. The book is narrated by 16-year-old lead character Aza Holmes.

Nice reading, John! Next step: Narrating the audiobook?

The book’s synopsis reads: “Turtles All the Way Down begins with a fugitive billionaire and a cash reward. It is about lifelong friendship, the intimacy of an unexpected reunion, Star Wars fan fiction, and tuatara. But at its heart is Aza Holmes, a young woman navigating daily existence within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts.”

Turtles All the Way Down hits store shelves on October 10, 2017.
