Want a better way to wander around the internet than scrolling through social media (again)?
Journalist and author Clive Thompson came up with a great online game for bookworms.
He called it the Weird Old Book Finder, and it allows a user to search books in the public domain — right now, anything before 1925 — just to see what comes up.
Thompson created it, in a way, to go along with the concept of "rewilding" the mind (i.e., wandering around the internet in a way that algorithms on social media sites don't allow).
Check out some of the Weird Old Book Finder's results for various queries at Medium.
