Remember DailyLit (see earlier post) , that gives you the option of reading books on-line via short installments by daily email (or RSS feed).

There was a notice from DailyLit’s Big Read:

“We’re excited to announce DailyLit’s Big Read, an event that invites everyone to read the same story at the same time. Join us in reading F. Scott Fitzgerald’s (1921) short story “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” – just in time for the Academy Awards (where the film version of the story might win big), and it’s completely FREE. You can also read on Twitter (start following DailyLitBigRead). Join DailyLit’s Big Read!”

Another way to offer our students a different approach to reading and perhaps encouraging those that struggle to read long novels, an alternative , less daunting way of reading a whole work.

You can also obtain a full text of the short story, by F.Scott Fitzgerald, on-line at  The University of Virginia .
