Here's something new - books delivered via Twitter. Daily Lit is offering three works via (super) short installments, beginning June 16th: Cory Doctorow's Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom , Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice , and Tom Peters's 100 Ways to Success/Make Money. What a great idea!
Daily Lit currently sends books via email or RSS daily, in five minute chunks that can be read on your computer, PDA, or smartphone. It's free for public domain titles, while other books require payment after a free beginning sample. Can you imagine getting a daily voice message sent to your cell phone with an audiobook serialized in commute-sized chunks? Everyone from business-suited subway riders to bus-riding teens would be happily listening! Audiobook publishers could send teaser-chapters to subscribers who want samples of favorite genres, who could purchase the title if interested. Maybe this is already happening, and I just don't know it!
