Pocket readers are a demanding bunch: they revolve around fascinating long readings that immerse readers deeply into a story or topic; explanatory that demystify complex or poorly understood topics; big ideas that challenge us to think and maybe even act differently; and very good advice for all facets of life. You’ll find must-see examples of it all inside these Eclectics The best collections 2021, from dozens of reliable and diverse publications.
The stories people record the most on Pocket often provide a fascinating window into what occupies our collective attention each year.

In 2020, the most read article was an in-depth and premonitory review of how the Covid-19 pandemic could end.
