Links of the Week | 12th July 2015

 I am loving this collection of literary tote bags from Pop Goes the Reader

I loved this post from Bee about writing short stories - it made me contemplate giving it a bash myself

I've been intrigued by the release of Harper Lee's Go Set a Watchman - there's a recording of Reese Witherspoon reading the first chapter here + an interesting review in the NYT by Michiko Kakutani here 

These photographs of Morrocco have me itching to go + see the country for myself

This project by Dylan Marron highlights the absence of people of colour in mainstream films.  I think it's important to hear stories from everyone, not a select few, so please ensure that your bookshelves aren't 100% white (you're missing out on some amazing stories if they are). 

Furthermore, this piece demanding diversity in publishing is a must read, and writer Nikesh Shukla is asking for those affected to submit their experiences of diversity (or lack-of) in publishing.  Please get involved + share it.

I've saved this recipe for spicy roasted tomato + corn soup so I can give it a go myself at some point

This article from Buzzfeed on the difference between book lovers on Instagram vs real life made me laugh

This week saw the 10th anniversary of the 7/7 bombings in London.  This piece by Sameer Rahim, written shortly after the event, presents his perspective on the attacks.

I've spent the weekend developing my Tumblr blog and I would love for you to check it out!

What have you been reading this week? Let me know in the comments!
