Find time to read a book using DailyLit

I would like to take a few minutes to introduce you to DailyLit. It fixes that feeling you get when you really want to read a book, but just can’t seem to find the time to do so. You will of course not get that flipping-though-dusty-paper-pages feeling that a real book will give you, but it’s a bit more convenient if you spend much time in front of your computer.

The main idea is that you first go to their website and find a book you want to read. They have a fairly large library containing many classics such as Moby Dick, Crime and Punishment and The Count of Monte Cristo. You then enter your email address, a period and a time. Chunks of the book will then automatically be emailed to you at said time. These chunks are small enough to read within a few minutes, but large enough to not lose the story itself.

If you have a fairly modern phone or a PDA, you could of course fetch those emails right there and do something worth-while on your commute to work.
