Reading Books On Twitter
My partner Albert and his wife Susan started a cool company last year called DailyLit. The idea behind DailyLit is you subscribe to a book and they deliver it in short bits to your email every day. I’ve read Dracula and Moby Dick this way and it’s a fun and easy way to read a book.
Yesterday DailyLit announced three daily read books on Twitter. They are:
The way this works is if you follow any of these books on Twitter (click on the links above to do that), each day you’ll get a tweet with a link to the section of the book to read that day.
Email is an easier way to read (particularly on a mobile device), but the neat thing about daily reads on twitter is that there will be a group of people reading the book at the same time you are. I can see @replies and conversations developing around these group reads.
It will be fun to see how this works out. I’ll be reading Cory’s book. Join me if you’d like.
