What are the best subreddits I’m not reading?

  1. /r/lifeofnorman is quite unknown. Basically, it’s a fanbase to an imaginary person, named Norman, who is just an entirely typical bloke. Content is based on people writing small anecdotal stories about Norman. Quite strange and entertaining- Norman grows along with the trends of the subreddit.

    Currently, they’re compiling a novel by collecting the stories and fitting them into a year of Norman’s life. They’re a ways away, but there’s still time to write and read a chunk, and get into the book.

  2. Is there a subreddit where people can make self posts to practice foreign languages? And native speakers may reply with tips and pointers? Seems like a ripe opportunity if there isn’t yet, since the amazing diversity of the Reddit community is perfectly suited for this.

  3. /r/AskHistorians if you’re into history at all. Heavily moderated so everything you read is legitimate and backed up with sources.

    Edit: TIL; there is a massive /r/AskHistorians hate circlejerk

  4. /r/whowouldwin

  5. /r/TalesFromRetail




  6. For music: /r/silkysmoothmusic

    For movie discussion: /r/flicks

    For fun: /r/explainlikeIAmA & /r/dogshowerthoughts

  7. /r/ExplainlikeIAMA

    Instead of giving you a list like others let me just give you this one. Some of the funniest things I’ve ever read are on this sub.

  8. /r/unstirredpaint, hands down.

  9. /r/financialindependence






















    I’ve posted this list before in a similar thread.

  10. /r/FreeEBOOKS

    • /r/100yearsago – for things that happened exactly 100 years go

    • /r/retrogaming – For gaming in the 70s, 80s, and 90s

    • /r/WDP – The sub that asks, “Why do people do what they do?”

    • /r/WhereIsMyFlyingCar – Because it’s almost 2015, damn it!

  11. /r/ShittyAnimalFacts is one of my favorites.

  12. /r/wheredidthesodago


  13. /r/youenteradungeon. It’s text-based RPGs in reddit. It’s awesome if you’re into that kind of thing.

  14. /r/UnexpectedThugLife
