Read an entire book - 140 characters at a time

Read Books via Twitter

DailyLit is a nifty service that will deliver entire books to you over email in small, manageable bits. The idea is to read a tiny bit of the book every day until it's finished. Now, DailyLit has announced support for Twitter.

The first books available to read over Twitter are Down and Out in The Magic Kingdom by Cory Doctorow, 100 Ways to Succeed//Make Money by Tom Peters, and Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. Check it out:

If you aren't on twitter yet, try it out! Twitter

Also, once you get Twitter, you can follow Steve and Dan by clicking on the links on the right sidebar that say "Follow ________."

That's a neat idea for Twitterers (is that a word?): reading books in bite size chunks. Thanks for keeping us informed Steve!

Just to clarify: we won't be sending the *content* of each installment by Twitter (because plenty of book *sentences* are longer than that), but rather we'll be sending a reminder tweet with a *link* to that day's installment, which you just read the normal web way.
