One thing email seems to be used constantly for, at least in the David-world, is reading. I spend a ton of time in my inbox, reading RSS feeds, emails, daily subscriptions, and everything else you can imagine.
This makes the email inbox a perfect place to do some more traditional reading- books. DailyLit is a site that puts books into small, daily chunks that it will deliver to your email or your RSS feed reader, letting you read books slowly, surely and simply.
The subscription is very customizable, allowing you to choose the days you receive the portions, the time you’ll get them, and where they get sent. You can specify length somewhat, choosing from “Regular,” “Longer” and “Longest.”
You start with free samples, and then pay if you want to continue the book. If you choose to, the books are cheap, typically less than $10. When you’re finished with the emails, it means you can keep the book on your computer, and it’s yours online.
You don’t need to register for the site, unless you want your credit card remembered for later purchases or want to comment on books and talk in forums. Set up is quick and easy, and there are some great free books.
DailyLit is a great thing to have for the in-between times- waiting for things, traveling, etc.- and helps you read books in chunks, delivered right to you.
