Give Me Something to Read

I’ve waxed about the dopeness of Instapaper already, but here’s something else related to it that’s cool: Give Me Something To Read. Subscribe to the site and every day it gives you a few longform articles that have been saved by Instapaper users.

I wouldn’t call it a best-of or the definitive source of great longform, since the hand-picked selection skews heavily toward stories about/by white dudes, but it includes some very fine journalism and makes a good supplement to whatever other reading one may do. I especially liked this 1997 article on what it’s like to freeze to death.
