Literature in a Daily Dose

by Laura Wright on December 17, 2009 in Odum Library

DailyLit.com delivers bite-sized pieces of classic or contemporary books to your email or RSS feed for free each day. You can set the schedule for how often and what time installments are sent, and select from a variety of titles.

I haven’t tried it yet but I’m thinking that Frankenstein or Journey to the Center of the Earth would be fun titles to start with.

If you’re thinking of giving a gift plant, you might find inspiration in “Plants Liven Up the Holidays” from The University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.
