With my busy schedule and lots of commitments I find reading books these days a challenge. DailyLit realizes this and has launched a product looking to help make it easier. DailyLit delivers books in managable installments via e-mail or RSS feed. Book updates are sent everyday in chucks that only take a few minutes (2 to 5 minutes) to read and then move on with your day making it possible to actually make progress on reading a book. DailyLit offers over 750 classics and a number of other books. Books range anywhere from free to $9.95 and come in a range of installments depending on the length of the book.
I think DailyLit is a brilliant idea as it takes advantage of a captive email audience. For example, I used to ride a train to work everyday as it offered me a 20 minutes a each way to read a book. These short installments offered a consistent flow of reading time. My commute has since changed and book reading time has become nearly nonexistent. Additionally, mobile technology has improved to bring a multimedia loaded and Internet devices which offer constant entertainment and competing with book reading time. So I like the way that DailyLit looks to help make readying books a consistent and managable activity.
