The Rabbit Hole #004: Walk It Off
Hi Story Made aficionados, welcome to The Rabbit Hole, The blog series that slowly migrates its release schedule across the weekend and shares my favorite stuff I stumbled across on the internet that week. Here we go:
How TikTok Became a Best Seller Machine (The New York Times)
The kids are reading, and sharing books with their followers. Maybe all is not lost.
What Becoming a Parent Really Does to Your Happiness (The Atlantic)
Can confirm, becoming a parent doesn't exactly make you happier. But happiness isn't everything, and it also isn't purpose. I've added a few books to my TBR from this article.
This was a great conversation about creativity and books and so many other things. I take a lot of influence from Austin Kleon. TRH is directly modeled off his fantastic newsletter, which you should definitely be subscribed to.
Another fantastic newsletter. In each issue, Isaac goes on a walk with a creator or writer of some sort (often women) and transcribes their conversation. I've only read a few but it's a new favorite. The latest is a walk with comics artist Leslie Stein.
12 Books That Changed How I Hear Music (The Honest Broker)
And none of them are about music! Got this one from the aforementioned Austin Kleon newsletter. A lot of these books sound on the academic side and seem like things I don't ever want to read...but hearing how they have changed the way Ted Gioia listens to music is fascinating and illuminating.
Thanks for reading! I hope you found something interesting.
