Daily Lit

Here is a great idea.

Public domain books sent to you in small chunks, by e-mail.

Daily Lit offers over two hundred books at this time, and they appear to be growing fast.

If you spend too much time at a computer or on homework - a five minute literature break may be a welcome thing.

I've just found out about this, maybe there is some way to hook it up with good old BFU.

As an example you can get Aristotle's Poetics sent to you in 19 pieces, or Baum's Wizard Of OZ
- sent in 51 pieces. Either one would be a welcome disruption in an overly intense day.

There are some exceptions that may not make sense, Don Quixote by Cervantes has been cut into 448 parts. I think a nice read over a single weekend might flow a bit better.

If you just want to try it out, Robert Browning's The Pied Piper Of Hamelin is only cut into three parts - they almost could have sent it whole.

Take a look and try a book.

Let us know how it works for you.
