"Books are special, books are the way we talk to generations that have not turned up yet. The fact that we can actually, essentially communicate with the people in ancient Egypt, people in Rome and Greece, people in ancient Britain, people in New York in the 1920s who can communicate to us and change the way we think, and change the things that we believe.
 
I think that books are special. Books are sacred. And I think that when you are selling books, you have to remember that in all the profits and loss, in all of that, you are treading on sacred ground."

So remember this cool fan-created art that appeared online as a mock cover for Blood of Olympus? Thrilled to learn Disney has licensed the art for a poster to appear in the exclusive Wal-Mart edition of the book. More details soon, plus info. about other exclusives for other booksellers.

This is one of my all time favorite Deviantart fan-arts everrr!!

D-Day does not stand for Donut Day, Tumblr. You had a choice between which you would celebrate, and you chose wrong.

Get your shit together.

93 year old Veteran, Jim “Pee Wee” Martin, celebrated D-Day by parachuting into Normandy just like he did 70 years ago

 I wonder what the program directors thought when an adorable elderly man came up to them and was all

"Yes I’m here for the parachuting."

70 Years

introspectivepoet:

I understand that today is also “Donut Day”, and it’s coincidental that it falls on the 70th anniversary of D-Day, but I find it disrespectful that people are making jokes about Donuts and D-Day.

Please do not forget the real, important, meaningful event that occurred on this day, June 6, 1944….

My late great uncle was captured by the Nazis, not on D-day but later in the Second World War, but his experience in the camp he was at was so horrible that he didn’t start talking about what he went through (and he would only talk to my grandfather) until about a year before his death.

He died almost five years ago.

My other great uncle never even came home from the war. My mamaw (she was his youngest sister out of a family of over eight kids) still has the letters that he wrote to his family and in the letters he would write about how excited he was because he was sure that he would be able to come home soon.

I don’t give a damn about doughnut day, that’s just stupid.

We have to pay the proper respect to the Greatest Generation that ever served in the history of the modern world, soldiers from all of the Allied countries.

Tumblr get your act together.

Hey tumblr,

instead of pretending to be all cute and shit with your “national donut day” or whatever

you should do the RIGHT thing and honor the men who died storming the beaches at normandy this day 70 years ago.

get your priorities in order, please.
