I've mostly quit Reddit, and I'm much happier because of it.

I'm also reading a lot more books, thanks in no small part to the excellent recommendations from folks here in the intermittent #bookthread.

The world has gone mad in the last 2 years, but this is place is a marvelous sanctuary.

Reddit is cultural trash. The more people who walk away from and disown it, the better.

Most of their content is sponsor-directed, behind the scenes, anyway. Their key is to design and code the site so it still seems community driven. But it's absolutely not.

I've also been picking up a lot more books in the past couple years; it's great.

Marvelous sanctuary is the right word. I am so glad I found this corner of the internet.

I have also found a lot of new books to love. A lot of them "proper grown-up books". It is nice to feel challenged while reading sometimes.
