Weekly inspiration ~ 25-29 March

Happy Easter! Hope everyone has a relaxing break :) Here are the things that have been inspiring me this week and that I've been loving!

1: These two articles by Meredith Farkas: "Assuming resistance is a bad thing" & "Lets just try it and see what happens!" I pretty much love any article by Meredith!

2: The third book in the Divergent series: I am so excited for the upcoming release of the as-yet-untitled book by Veronica Roth- probably my favourite YA series EVER!! Also if you're a fan, you may be interested to know a Downton Abbey minor character has been cast as Tobias 'Four' Eaton in the movie!!

3:  Better book displays: My boss fowarded this link to me about creating better book displays & I found it very useful :)

4: Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. I thought you could only get these in the United States ( please tell me if I'm wrong!) but I found them in Akaroa this weekend! They are so deliciously salty/sweet and just in time for Easter :)

2: Teen Librarian Toolbox: Another cool blog to follow :)

3: This hilarious blog by Moara Tamaira

5: Instaframe app for Twitter- so good! Here’s an example:

Weekly inspiration

Lately I've been lacking time and inspiraton to write 'proper' blog posts so, I thought I would do what I've seen on lots of other blogs and publish a post at the end of the week of things that have inspired/motivated me or that I find interesting. These things will mostly be library related but may include some random stuff :) :)
I'm looking foward to posting more regularly on my poor neglected blog!
