What is Readup?
Readup is a reading platform that incentivizes thoughtful, deep reading of the world's best free content. We are a community that believes in a moonshot idea: that reading can revitalize the internet, make it more sane, more human.
How it works
- Read anything you want without distractions. No ads. No links.
- Track and improve your online reading habits.
- Have conversations with others about articles you've read.
- Vote with your attention. Reads are like "upvotes" or "likes."
- A community of readers creating a better web for everyone.
From the community
“Reading the articles has opened me in a way that is exciting and expansive. I love the quality of the selections, the community - the ease of use. This is VERY important, especially given all the evidence recently that people are having a really difficult time even being able to read, to have the ability to concentrate, to focus, to care what the hell they are even putting in their minds! I am SUCH a HUGE fan and grateful for this app.” -Pegeen
“WOW. This content is crazy good.” -Natalie
“From a mindfulness perspective, I enjoy seeing how much my monkey mind tries to make me skip sections and how good a practice it is to stick with it anyway.” -Leo
“I love how thoughtful the comments are.” -Crystal Hana Kim, novelist.
