Thanks to everyone for making literary month amazing!! We did so many awesome literary tattoos, and collected A TON of books for Portland Books to Prisoners. 

Speaking of awesome literary tattoos, LOOK HOW AMAZING this tattoo by Niki is!! The book closes when she closes her arm!! We are so jealous for not thinking of this.

Happy birthday, Harry Potter!

To celebrate Harry’s birthday (and my undying love for the series), I made my own covers! I created patterns (Thanks for the inspiration Scandinavia!) using a significant object from each book. I used those in the movies as reference and digitally painted them. You can view the whole project here! :)

NPR’s education team hand-picked more than 300 commencement speeches dating back to 1774 and compiled them into a database that’s searchable by name, school, year and theme.

Here, to whet your appetite, is a selection of commencement quotes from writerly types. If you like what you read, there’s plenty more where that came from.

Oooh, another great resource for tumblarians!

As the end of the school year approaches…
