Just a Little Bit

Ever find you'd really like to read something but just can't find the time to do it? Your day just slips by, and before you know it, it's time to put your head on your pillow.

If you're an e-mail junkie, you find a good portion of that lost time is spent reading e-mail.

But you could turn you e-mail into that chance to read the classic you've been meaning to get to, or the latest bestseller someone recommended.

There's a website (from the Well Trained Mind Secular Yahoo group) that will send bits of a novel you select into your inbox everyday. Great way to actually do that reading! It's called Daily Lit and it has free books that are out of copyright as well as new books for a nominal fee (much less than buying the book).

Lots of classics. If your kid has an e-mail adress, you could sign them up!

Kim, thank you so much for the pointer! This is great! It might even be worth getting my girls an email address for the purpose.

I did get my daughter a Yahoo e-mail address, but I'm not sure I want to do this one--we already fight over our single computer as it is! But she does really like getting e-mail.
