Spoon Food #3: 13 links for reading

Drop by Alex Stoddard

At last it’s Friday. This weekend I am planning to visit a really good friend in Bristol and we have so many plans that the two days of my visit seem insignificantly short already. Apart from that I am trying to plan an online humoristic seminar (surprise!) that I am preparing for some time now, in a (almost) snowy Amsterdam that refused to welcome spring. Here are some links for reading if you are in the mood. 

11 lies all readers have told.

What should I read next? An algorithm that recommends books for reading.

The everyday routines of a bookworm.

10 beautiful and practical kitchen gadgets.

The ULTIMATE guide for cycling in Amsterdam, cause (pause since I died from laughter) happy cycling is safe cycling.

Something beautiful is happening in this animal shelter in Missouri.

The Robin Hood of science. She makes our research lifes better.

It's a miracle we ever met.

A mixtape that I hear every morning this week.

Mark Zuckerberg's opinion about privacy and John Oliver's opinion about Trump.

Amazing new illustrations for the Harry Potter series.

From Athens to Peiraeus illustration by Costas Theoharis.

An overview on Oscars: What is it to work in Hollywood (if you are not a white straight man).

Anything good that you read and want to share? Write the link in the comments below. Have a fun and relaxing weekend! xoxo

Déspina Kortesidou

Déspina Kortesidou was born with the April flowers sometime in the '90s in the sunny peninsula of Greece. She is a graduating master student of neuroscience & metabolism, and a born adventurer.

(3rd person statements sound so official, love it)

She founded In Whirl of Inspiration, back in 2011 when she was (just) a biology student, in the island of Crete. In Whirl of Inspiration started as a creative and writing outlet for when studying molecules, became too monotonous. Recently, she started writing a children book and a not-so-children's book about the civil war in Greece. She has a soft spot for cheese, elder people, and (her own) jokes, but can't tell any as she ruins them by laughing too early. She enjoys sharing advice for eating healthier, or inspiring people to cover themshelves with plants, color and confetti.

Feel free to email her at hello@inwhirlofinspiration.com, or find her on Instagram and Twitter. (breaking the 3rd person narration to thank you properly)

Thank you so much for reading!
