Last year we introduced the Longreads Membership as an optional way for you to support our service. And it’s because of our members that we’re still here today. Thank you again for all your support.
Today we’re introducing something new for our Longreads Members: Exclusive access to stories that aren’t available anywhere else on the web, produced by the best publishers and writers in the world. We’re thrilled to partner with Random House and New York Times writer Charles Duhigg in presenting our first Longreads Exclusive Pick, “The Power of a Crisis,” a full chapter from Duhigg’s bestselling book The Power of Habit.
We hope to send more exclusives to you in the future. We won’t send them every week, but when we do, you’ll be sure that these exclusives come with our highest recommendation.
One other perk to being a member is that you’ll have the chance to recommend future Longreads Member exclusives. Tell us what you want to share with your fellow members (it can be a story, an excerpt, or something completely different), and if we like it too, we’ll find it and feature both you and your pick. Send us your suggestions at email@example.com.
