A weekly newsletter that gives you 6 brief personal recommendations of cool stuff.

More people should know about Nuzzel. It’s the sane and efficient way I consume social media without having to read it. Nuzzel displays the six most recommended links each day among all the people I follow on Twitter and Facebook. So instead of reading those endless feeds, I read my one page Nuzzel digest and get the six best articles that are most read by my friends. — KK

The Crimson Petal and the White, Michel Faber’s 922-page novel about a Victorian era prostitute and a soap-and-perfume industrialist, was a full-sensory immersion into 1875 London. I haven’t had this much fun reading a novel about Merrie Olde England since Pillars of the Earth. — MF

The Learning Toolbox website has a bunch of useful tips for getting the most out of studying. It’s was created for students with “mild disabilities,” but I think it’s useful for all students and non-students too. As someone who gets distracted easily, I appreciated the tips on how to focus on lectures and while reading. — MF
I’m always amazed and slightly annoyed when the hotel hair dryer works better than my more expensive one back home. This hair dryer is cheap, portable and works just as good as any $50+ dryer. — CD
