I find television very educational. Every time someone switches it on I go into another room and read a good book. — Groucho Marx
Reading is a great pastime, but it can be hard to find time to curl up with a good book when all of these great reality television shows are on. What’s a guy/girl to do? The first step is to turn the television off, and the next step involves finding a good book to spend some time with. The moving picture box is fine and dandy, but sometimes we all need a little more mental stimulation. If the last book you read had something to do with green eggs and ham or the monster at the end of the book, you’re in desperate need of some new material. Those big, often clunky, classic novels are usually regarded as the best, and that’s what a site called Classic Novels In 5 Minutes A Day aims to provide.
“Classic Lit, Bit by Bit” is the site’s tag line, and that’s exactly what it strives to bring to you. Instead of being overwhelmed by a thick book filled with so many of those long, exasperating words (gasp!) all at once, the site will email you small installments that you can read. This breaks the content up so you can take it in and digest it at your leisure. Five minutes isn’t too much to ask in terms of reading classic literature, is it? I didn’t think so. You can also choose to read the various sections of the book on the Web site, and links are even available for those of you who would actually like to purchase the books and turn the physical pages (or fire ’em up on your Kindle if that’s more your style). Spend some time with classic literature, won’t you?
