      Signed up for the salon! :) Also, how can I get my reading stats? Do I need the chrome add-on for that?

        Meet you there! For the stats: click the three dots in the right-top menu of Readup.

        Or this link: readup.com/stats.

        It was also linked in Bill's article, but reader mode hides links ;)

            You're welcome! After registering I saw this salon is at 1-2:30 AM for me. I might reconsider 😅

      My last month was also erratic. But it was still the biggest article-reading month so far. I think I had a 7+ day streak at some point. So if anything, corona boosted my reading!

      I also appreciated the ocean article yesterday. At some point I was thinking, "why am I reading this at 11pm rather than doing something enjoyable?", but the question was short-lived. It was a great article. And I'm happy you saved it from rollingstone.com where it was kept hostage by horrendous ads (I accidentally didn't have an ad blocker on. Really, how could one read this???)

      I especially liked your observation that we should "flatten the climate curve". That's EXACTLY it, we can start using the vocabulary we are learning in the current crisis to talk about the bigger crisis.

      "...but I think they can equally be divided into shallow and deep, and the pursuit of what is supposed to be happiness is often a flight from depth, from one’s own interior life and the suffering around us – and not being happy is often framed as a failure."

      She lost me there. I guess I should read the article.
