getpocket.com instead of the usual dreck

I’m trying to substitute “fast food” quality reading with mind-provoking, consciousness-expanding material.  I’m replacing news about the Kardashians and Cheeto-head tweets with stuff that’s really interesting, to me.  A few months ago I stumbled onto getpocket.com, and I’d like to recommend it.

            no-kardashians                   no-trump.

 

 

Every day, I get an email from getpocket, with links to a few interesting articles.  The articles might be from The Atlantic, NPR, Vox, Lifehacker, NY Times, or any source, really.  They are articles that other getpocket users have selected as interesting.  If you’re a Firefox user, it’s also integrated with that browser, and how I joined.

As an example, one article today was on “What Deep Breathing Does to Your Body” and it reminded me to take a few deep breaths now and then, and another on the “7 books to read in 2019“.  You can select subjects like health, travel, and finance.

Here’s how to sign up.  It’s free of course.  Good reading and Happy New Year.
