Everyone would like to read more books, and you’re probably no exception. But with all the responsibilities of modern life, kids, school, and probably spending more time on Facebook than you should, you may be feeling like there’s absolutely no time to do it. If so, check out ‘Dailylit’.
Dailylit is a FREE online service that will send you your choice of ebook in byte-sized installments, as emails in your inbox or via RSS feed.
The service offers a large number of FREE ebooks, mostly classics and out of copyright books (Jane Austin, The Bible, Charles Dickens etc) but also a very interesting range of contemporary books that are available 100% free of charge (e.g. books by Margaret Atwood, Seth Godin, Steve Jobs, etc.).
New titles are always being added, so one thing you might want to do is browse books sorted by release date to see the latest additions to the site. Each book you add to your list will show you the number of installments that it takes to finish it, but you can always accelerate the process by either enlarging the amount of text in each installment or choosing more installments per week.
If you read your installment and find that you want to read the next one without waiting, there’s a link at the bottom of each email that you can use to receive it right then and there.
This is what the emails look like:
A really nice service, and a brilliant idea. You can read your installments anywhere, on your PC, tablet, or mobile device, etc.
The only ‘problem’ with it is that they are not likely to have the books that I want to read that are waiting unread in my ereader. I can therefore think of one thing that can make it a lot better: the ability for a registered user to upload their own DRM-free, unrestricted ebooks, and have them be served via email without being accessible to the public.
By all means check Dailylit out; it may change your life for the better.
