Walden Pond is a little paper zine that comes once a month in the mail ✉. It’s full of a selection of the articles you’ve saved to Pocket, so you know that you’re interested in everything inside. Each issue has over an hour of reading, the battery will never run out, it’s clear in bright sunlight 😎 and has a low-latency pen interface (or pencil) 📝.
When I cracked open my first edition I felt like it had been grown in a lab just for me. The perfect digital detox.
I'm about to get my third curated edition of Walden Pond and I'm really looking forward to receiving it. Reading online articles in a physical book has been wonderfully relaxing, especially over a cup of coffee or breakfast in the morning. This service has not only helped me to reduce my screen time, it's been a welcome reminder that there are articles, ideas, and stories "past me" wanted to read, but didn't have time to do so. Now I can incorporate my reading into self-care time and really enjoy exploring topics that piqued my interest and keep me inspired.
I read on a screen all day for work, so taking time to read on a physical zine custom curated by me makes my leisure reading really enjoyable. Great quality printing and integrates really well with my pocket.
