You're a young, busy homeschooling mom and it seems you have more to do in a day than you have hours to do it.
You're a single working mom with no energy left at the end of the day.
You're a 40-, 50-, or 60-something who has watched the years slip by without your having found the time to read the classics or learn about topics that have always interested you.
Can you spare 5 minutes?
That's all it takes to read a daily installment of that book you've always wanted to read, or the latest installment of "Best Picture" Oscar winners or famous inventors or wonders of the world. You can even get a short course in wine or Greek mythology. Daily Lit is a website created so that people like you and me can get a huge selection of literature and other choice knowledge delivered in small doses.
One installment of your chosen book is emailed to you each day and is short enough to be read while you wait for the pasta water to boil. Okay, so it takes half a year to read A Tale of Two Cities or Pride and Prejudice this way. But if you're having a hard time finding time to read at all, you could at least finish out this year with one or two classics under your belt! And you can always double up and read twice as fast if you choose.
Best of all, many of the great books and all of the Wikipedia "tours" are absolutely free. Books in the public domain cost nothing; copyrighted books require payment only after you receive the first few installments and want to continue. So if you have five minutes a day that you can spare to get back into the habit of reading, go take a look at DailyLit.com and come back and tell me what you're reading!
(For those of you with an iPod and more than five minutes, I still HIGHLY recommend audible.com !)
