So we were sitting in class today

and my U.S. History teacher was trying to get us to understand why it was such a big deal that England had put a tax on colonial sugar, and he goes,

"What if you had to pay a tax every time you logged onto wifi?"

And the whole class just went

and I heard at least two people whisper “I would murder someone”

I will keep reblogging this in the name of historical science

this is why I always loved my history teachers…so good at relating things to modern times.

The first official posters for all three films

So, much as it pains me to say, that last poster is everything that is wrong with this trilogy:

A poster for THE HOBBIT—the “defining chapter”—with nary a hobbit in sight.

Sigh. They even took his journey out of the title. It’s no longer “There and Back Again,” but rather a battle of five armies. Again: The Hobbit minus the hobbit.

*melancholy Martin Freeman and JRR Tolkien fangirl sigh*

(Obviously I will still see it several times in the theater and buy all editions that come out on DVD and Blu-Ray. But I will do so with wistful, jaded melancholy.)

^ Agreed. But obvi I too will see it several times (and buy like every poster, etc…). The first two thought great were still a little too blah for my tastes, I think it’s because I grew up reading the book (one of 1st fantasy books I read) and so I had super high expectations…tbh I wish it was one movie not three parts but whatevs. I still love it.

Are We There Yet?: On Perseverance & Patience #amwriting #writingtip #DontGiveUp

arewethereyetroad

My dad wrote an ahmazing post on patience and fitness. He’s a wellness coordinator, and his big motto is no gimmicks, only hard work and results (he’s tough but his clients appreciate it). In the post he says this,

If you have taken children on a road trip, you have probably heard them say “are we there yet.” I hear it a lot, not just from my children but also adults. Adults who are looking for…

Author Amy Zhang is half-way through a unique project to promote the upcoming release of her debut novel, Falling into Place (Greenwillow, September 9, 2014). Zhang has chosen one quote from the first 100 pages of her novel for each day and posted photos on Instagram that illustrate the concepts. With 50 photos up online already and 50 more to go, readers can get a unique preview of this buzzed-about book before it hits shelves in September.

Follow Amy on Instagram (@amyzhangbooks) or Twitter (@amyzwrites) to see each day’s photo.

Amy’s awesome & I’m sure this book is going to be equally so. I’ve been waiting for one of her books to be published for almost as long as I’ve been blogging, (she was one of my 1st interviewees) so this is pretty exciting!

Middle Grade Madness

I love each of these covers for different reasons. By the Grace of Todd‘s cover has a great contrast between the black & white and the color. I also like the sense of wonder you get as Todd looks down. With Caminar‘s cover it’s how different it is from most MG covers I see, which have kids on them, and the eyes plus the leaves that decorate the cover’s front. With Steering…
