There are few perfect sites on the internet. DailyLit is one of them.

If you are like us, you spend hours each day reading email but don’t find the time to read books. DailyLit brings books right into your inbox in convenient small messages that take less than 5 minutes to read. This works incredibly well not just on your computer but also on a Treo, Blackberry, Sidekick or whatever the PDA of your choice. In the words of Dr. Seuss: Try it, you might like it!

How does this work?

  1. You select a book.
  2. You provide an e-mail address.
  3. You schedule delivery of the e-mail.
  4. DailyLit mails a small chunk of the text you’ve selected per your schedule.

This is absolutely brilliant. And it’s free!

Always wanted to read Moby Dick but never found the time? Now you’ve got no excuse. You can have the whiteness of the whale delivered in bite-sized chunks. Curious about Dickens? Sample one of several novels. Try Shakespeare or Twain. Read Dracula or Sherlock Holmes. Or read one of my all-time favorite novels, Willa Cather’s My Antonia.

DailyLit currently offers 93 public-domain classics, drawn from the archives at Project Gutenberg. You can check the available titles here:

  • A-H (34 titles)
  • I-P (21 titles)
  • Q-Z (38 titles)

DailyLit promises not to abuse your e-mail address. Each installment also allows you to request the next episode immediately, so that if you must know what Ishmael and Queequeg are up to, you can find out right away. My only wish is that there were capsule summaries of the available books.

DailyLit makes reading easy.
