Settle in for a Story with Longreads

Untitled_4.pngHey, we get it--sometimes you aren't in the mood to read an entire book. If you're looking to sink your teeth into something interesting without committing to a massive hunk of literature, check out Longreads. Browse the main page to discover essays, short stories and articles, or sign up for the newsletter to get a weekly dose of new content. Each entry begins with a preview of who the author is and where the work was originally published.

This is a great way sample a little bit of everything without subscribing to shelves full of magazines. There's a variety of subject matter and writing styles. This week we were able to read Ira Glass' commencement speech at Columbia Journalism School, as well as a detailed account of how it feels to wake up during surgery.

If you're unsure of where to start, try browsing the Best of 2018 collection. There's something for everyone--true crime sleuths, sports fans, and foodies will find something worth taking a second look at.
