School 2.0 - Periodic English Literature Via Email

I came across a very interesting website the other day called dailylit.com. It is a repository of free, public domain books of literature. There's nothing really new in that.

What distinguishes dailylit from other sites is that it emails the reader a chapter of the desired text one day at a time. For example, if you're an English teacher who wants the class to read Moby Dick in chapters, you can ask students to subscribe and then pick the frequency of that chapters will arrive in their emails.

It's a very nice idea that will save money on text books, innovate learning, and broaden our teacher's ability to teach difficult subject matter.
