Web Crush of the Week: Brain Pickings
Posted by: Karen Kleckner Keefe

Screen Shot 2013-07-08 at 3.17.02 PMCreated and (mostly) written by Wired UK and The Atlantic writer  Maria Popova, Brain Pickings is a “human-powered discovery engine for interestingness, a subjective lens on what matters in the world and why, bringing you things you didn’t know you were interested in — until you are.” Of particular interestingness is the Literary Jukebox, which features a daily quote from a favorite book, thematically matched with a song.
