HIPPO Reads — curating your online reading experience


I’m writing with deepest apologies for the long posting absence. A new venture has been taking up much of my time these days and I’m happy to announce it here:

HIPPO Reads is a literary startup focused on curating and delivering high quality, previously published content with an academic bent.

Think of us as TED Talks for readers – short pithy pieces with educational appeal, a perpetual reading list for the most interesting classes out there.  All pieces are accessible, but we don’t dumb it down. We select content with a level of depth that allows readers to sink their teeth into the subject at hand.

This week we featured a Lunar (Chinese) New Year inspired post on the impacts of modern migration. Today we’re featuring the cultural economy of gift giving — i.e., why you want chocolates and flowers on Valentine’s Day.

As for Cold Mountain Collective, I will continue posting here with great recommendations for sustainable practices, but if you’re hungry for more, you can also follow the curations at HIPPO Reads
