Burn Before Reading: A Carly Allen Story

Quote of the Day: 04.09.2017

Y'all ready to jump through some hoops to hear how we got a Thomas Edison quote of the day?

So, today Alaska officially became a state. Yay, Alaska! As far as I know,  Tommy Edison never went to Alaska, HOWEVER a dude named John Green wrote a book called Looking for Alaska which talks about our boy, Tommy.

It may come as a surprise to you, but finding quotes about Alaska proved to be difficult. And since 1. I am in charge of this blog and 2. I stayed up until 2 a.m. watching the Great British Bake Off while eating In N Out; I did not feel like putting in a lot of research this morning.

Anyway. Back to Looking for Alaska. It's about a boy who really likes famous people's last words. Pictured above are Tommy Edison's. He's probably talking about heaven or hell or whatever comes next, but I'd like to think he could be talking about Alaska, too.
