Who doesn’t like a good longread?

We published a lot of material in our first five days, some of which was rather long. To help you catch up with those great pieces, we’ve created a page for Quartz longreads.

On Twitter, avid readers share lengthy works of non-fiction with the hashtag #longreads, and many of those picks find their way to longreads.com, a site founded by Mark Armstrong in 2009. He now works for Pocket, one of a few great services for saving material from the web to read later. A similar service, Instapaper, is built right into Quartz: just tap the “I” icon in the sharing tools alongside any story on qz.com.

As an experiment, we’ve also taken our initial set of #longreads and compiled them with Readability, yet another option for long-form aficionados. Click here to view that “readlist,” which you can also send to Kindle, iBooks, and other ebook software. (Yes, in a sense, this is the first Quartz ebook. Click over to Readlists to download it.)

When you’ve exhausted our offerings, you can find more great reading material at sites like The Browser, The Feature, Digg, and ProPublica’s MuckReads.
