2015 was an exciting year for YouTube star Connor Franta. To prove it, his fans have made sure that he was nominated for “Favorite YouTube Star” at The People’s Choice Awards 2016. The ceremony will be televised on January 6, 9pm on CBS.
One of the great things to have happened to the wise 23-year-old occurred just days before he rang in the New Year. Barnes and Noble included his memoir A Work in Progress in its post-Christmas promotion. The “So You Got a B&N Gift Card for Christmas! 10 Great Books to Buy” promo includes Franta’s book, the literary classic Moby Dick by Herman Melville, the latest novel by T.C. Boyle The Harder They Come, and the inevitable best-seller The Bazaar of Bad Dreams by Stephen King.
