#5SmartReads is a daily/weekly digest of the news you should know, the books to read, and the things that will make your life better.
I created #5SmartReads to share the news that isn’t getting the visibility or discussion that it deserves. #5SmartReads launched on my Instagram Stories, and I continue to share them there every weekday.
The daily newsletter delivers the 5 must read articles and commentary, curated by myself or one of my incredible contributors. The weekly newsletter is a long read that shares reflections from the week, the books we’ve all read, links to each day’s reads from the week, and the answers to your burning questions.
Who am I? I’m Hitha Palepu, a self-proclaimed multi-hyphenate.
