Lyse Links: Email Newsletters


Today I’m sharing some of my favorite email newsletters. I never cringe when these show up in my inbox! (All of these are free)

  • NextDraft – Dave Pell, the Internet’s editor, collects the most interesting/significant news of the day and sends it out in a newsletter. It’s concise, comprehensive, and super easy to read through and trash. Boom. On top of the news in less than 5 minutes.
  • Now I Know – Dan Lewis sends out this daily newsletter with interesting stories, facts, and quizzes. They’re generally amusing, good conversation starters, and easy to read and delete in about 5 minutes.
  • Brain Pickings – Maria Popova collects her blog’s best articles and sends them out on Sundays. This newsletter is literary, thoughtful, and spiritual. It has tons of content, often focusing on creativity and expression.
  • Book Perks – Daily e-book deals from a variety of genres (they have some good stuff). I’m a cheapskate*, so I hardly ever buy the e-books, even when they’re $0.99, but they also include links to giveaways, which I always enter.

*Ahem. Aka newlywed (broke) grad student. 

Do you get any newsletters you love? I’d like to hear about them in the comments!
