“The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one.” -Mark Twain
There is a website for those of you who think you do not have time to read. Visit www.dailylit.com and choose from a wide range of books. The site will email you a small portion of the book each day that takes less than five minutes to read. Many of the books are free, although some of them do cost money. I decided to try it with a short classic, The Prince. I signed up yesterday and it took me one minute. Really. If you feel like reading more you can request the next installment be emailed to you immediately. It’s largest categories are classics, contemporaries and romance, but there are many more. Take a look and tell me what book you chose to start reading today.
I came across this site today that claims to have 30,000 free books online. It looks like the majority of those are classics. As a test I checked the last book I read (Kafka) and he was there ready to read! The thought of sitting in front of a computer to read a whole book is not appealing to me, but I can think of better possible uses. It’d be fine for short stories or to read a few chapters to see if they interested you enough to get the book. Check it out.
My Monday quiz seems to have many of you stumped. I thought I would include this link to a website for fun Shakespeare games with great graphics.
Who knows, maybe it will help you answer a few of the quotes on the quiz. Games include: Hamlet’s Duel, What’s in a name? (find a match for Juliet), Name that Play, and SAT-Shakespeare Aptitude Test.
