Yes, I'm still on my crusade to make people realize they do have time to read - more time than they think. They get through dozens if not scores of emails per day, right? What if one of those emails were a short installment of a book they'd always wanted to read but hadn't gotten around to yet?

For now the books are limited to what is in the public domain (or available under Creative Commons licenses). I am new to the site and am still familiarizing myself with all it offers, but apparently the books are available via email or RSS feed, work with many electronic devices, and it is all free. Each book has its own discussion forum, but you must register to access the forums. Email delivery, etc., is available without registration.
There are lots of alluring choices, despite copyright limitations, from E. Nesbit's The Enchanted Castle and Kipling's Kim (two of my personal favorites) to Virgil's Aeneid, Defoe's Moll Flanders, Bronte's Wuthering Heights and the complete works of Edgar Allan Poe.
It might take a few months to get through a book, depending on how many installments you get through per day, but still, it's better than not getting through the book at all, right? And I'd be willing to bet that at a certain point, readers might just go pick up the book and tear through the rest of it, too impatient to wait to find out how it all turns out. I'm going to pick one, just for fun, to see how I like it. The hardest part will be deciding which one to start out with!
