Read one new Wikipedia.org entry top to bottom everyday for 30 days.

2011-02-10

I decided to read a new Wikipedia entry everyday for 30 days. Finding new entries turned out to be very easy; when I read through an entry there were often links to other entries that intrigued me. After finishing this project, I found I had a lot more links I wanted to read aside the initial 30. What I've done is listed all the initial 30 I read, then below that will be an ongoing list of links I haven't gotten to yet but wish to. I don't plan on reading one a day anymore, but as I go through my unread links, I'll move them to the read section.

I'd recommend reading many of the links in this list yourself, 80% of them are very interesting. Feel free to send me any links from Wikipedia you find worth reading as well.
