Fave five tweets to end the week!
Kids Books with Characters of Color via @commonsense – Since it is my goal to make diverse book choices, it only makes sense to apply the same conscientiousness to what I pick for my kids.
Is “likeability” only an issue if the character is female? via @melvillehouse – This is a topic that recently came to my attention reading Bad Feminist by Roxane Gay. I like a well-developed female anti-hero as much as a male one, but do believe the female character would probably draw more attention (and criticism). What do you think?
Read 50 Pages Before Deciding to Drop a Book via @Lifehacker – I typically use the 50 page rule, although sometimes I’m so deep into a book I don’t love and finish it anyway groaning the whole time.
Classic Authors’ British Houses On Google Maps via @ShortList – Fun for some posthumous stalking.
Deep Style: Margaret Atwood via @FlareFashion – Curated by Sheila Heti, I really enjoyed looking at these photos. Happy birthday, Margaret!
