Speaking of…

…fiction-delivery vehicles, after poking a little fun at DailyLit.com and the idea of reading War and Peace via e-mail, I thought, what the hell, you never know until you try. So I subscribed, and this morning I read chunklet 13 of 675. It sure isn’t ideal, because when you’re checking you’re e-mail you’re not really in an enjoy-great-literature frame of mind–also, if you haven’t had your coffee yet and you need to refresh your memory, you have to find the previous e-mail instead of simply turning to the previous page. And yet. I’ve never read War and Peace, and have always wanted to, and am continuing to do so.

I’ll let you know how it goes.
