Daily Lit: Summer Reading Delivered to Your Device

As the summer approaches, it's time to give our students ways to read, reflect, and synthesize EVERY DAY whether they are coming to school or not. I recently stumbled upon Daily Lit, a site that delivers a short chunk of literature to your phone, ipod, Google Reader, or computer each day. (You choose the time it arrives.) Each installment takes about 5 minutes to read, but you can order more installments on demand if you get "hooked." It sounds like a perfect way to keep summer readers on track. There are many free titles, but some of them cost money. I am going to try this for a few weeks with a free title. It seems like a great way to keep my summer reading on track!

  1. I have read a lot of classics that I might never have read using Daily Lit. It is great becuase I set the installments to arrive when I have my morning coffee. It is a much more relaxing way to start the day than reading the news which is supposed too depressing for me in the morning.
