Last year I published a short list of my favorite long reads of 2015, and people seemed to find it useful for the holidays. So I’m back with another list for 2016—this time on the shorter-read side (and I suppose good for mobile reading, natch). Again 10 items in all, and please do share if you’re inspired.
Wishing everyone a great 2017 ahead!
