Books and to-do list

At ABA, we like to spend January tidying up our inboxes—you know, unsubscribing from all that pesky junk mail and stuff we don’t read anymore. We have fun.

And that means we’ve got loads of room for the good stuff. If you’re like us, and maybe...now you’re looking for something fun to subscribe to, we’ve rounded up a few of our author and staff faves.

  • Rachel Andrew loves Coding with Veni by Veni Kunche, a newsletter for underrepresented coders.
  • Ethan Marcotte keeps A11y Weekly from David A. Kennedy in rotation for a weekly does of accessibility, and Anjali Ramachandran’s Other Valleys for media and tech news largely not from the US/UK/EU.
  • Katel LeDu finds something useful or surprising (or both) in Recomendo’s weekly list of brief recommendations of really cool stuff. She also never misses any of Erin Ruberry’s In Better News dispatches, because each note has: good news, good animals, and good GIFs.
  • Lisa Maria Marquis looks forward to perusing professional and creative development opportunities across design, the arts, tech, and more—in Words of Mouth. Speaking of opportunities, she highly recommends Remote Jobs Club, where Sanj Ambalavanar collates a biweekly roundup of remote jobs that “aren’t restricted by commutes or a particular geographic area.”
  • Dan Brown thinks Leisa Reichelt deserves your attention. She reads “loads about design and user research with a touch of organizational design, strategy, diversity, accessibility and the odd bit of feminism”—and she wants to share it with you every week (or so).
  • Jeremy Keith is a big fan of The History of the Web, Jay Hoffman’s weekly dose of the best stories from, well, the web’s history.

And! Don’t miss out on excellent newsletters straight from our authors, like: Lara Hogan’s company newsletter, Lisa Maria Marquis’ literary dispatch, Jeremy Keith’s industry roundup, and Chris Coyier’s weekly CSS-Tricks transmission.
