Some time ago I was referred to a website called Daily Lit which unsurprisingly is based around daily reading…of a book, via either email or RSS.
The idea is that you choose a book you want to read and then select how many chunks you want to read it in, which days you want to read it, when you want to receive it and a bunch of other editable variables like text size too. You can have it sent directly to your mailbox or you can view it via an RSS feed. Some books are free of charge and others you have to pay for.
I’ve been a member since before Christmas and have been reading a book called Little Brother which Daily Lit summarises as A scarily realistic adventure about how homeland security technology could be abused to wrongfully imprison innocent Americans. A teenage hacker-turned-hero pits himself against the government to fight for his basic freedoms.
The bite sized chunks are just right for reading over breakfast and even though I am eager to see how the story progresses I like the daily delivery of the book and look forward to receiving that email at 6.40 every morning. I have so far had 60 installments and have 56% of the book left to read.
