Procrastination Station #56

Sorry I’m late this weekend! Very topsy turvy week… better late than never!

First, an update on my Etsy empire!: There’s a sale on at Edinburgh Vintage with many very cool items considerably reduced! I also just started up my own line of handmade accessories, CustomisEd. Check out the Halloween stuff I posted recently! // For those of you who don’t know, I also recently set up a spin-off to Edinburgh Vintage, a store called Quilt of Dreams which carries vintage fabrics, buttons, trimmings and embellishments for dressmakers, quilters and crafters. Check it out! // & the Read This Press store is business as usual… Skin Deep is almost totally sold out now so grab yourself a copy on the double!

Rediscovering poetry // Poem of the week // & another // I heart Byron // Reviewing the work of friends // 10 most challenged books in the USA // 10 of the UK’s best second hand bookstores (I’ve only been to two! I sense a roadtrip coming on…)

Visit the Moleskinerie (thanks Beth!)

Ever wonder what Jay-Z’s favourite books are?

I love the Rejectionist.

Photos from the Scottish Poetry Library’s By Leaves We Live Fair (including some terrifying ones of me), and a write up!

I now follow Margaret Atwood on Twitter!

Literary threads (thanks Regina!)

Found online this week: A sweet haiku by former Featured Poet Juliet Wilson // Matt Haigh at 13 Myna Birds and Pomegranate // Gareth Trew is Poet in Residence at Poet’s Letter Magazine // New work from Alex Williamson // I love this poem from Howie Good at Bolts of Silk // & Angela Maiers gave me a mention!
