DailyLit Creates a New Way to Read Books

FireFly Enables Freaky Real-Time Visitor Spying

The book bound together a lot of information into a portable format. The eBook questioned it — asking why it had to be something physical and with a hard cover when the digital age allowed for information to be so much more. The eBook Reader, or Kindle, took that forward, combining the portability of the book and the ubiquity of the eBook. And now, DailyLit is taking a horizontal step toward a new concept — subscription-based reading via e-mail or RSS.

Here’s how it works. Like any book store, DailyLit has a bunch of books for everyone to buy. Most free, some a nominal $6.95. You can search through their catalogue, or browse through categories. When you’ve made the purchase, you’re not going to get a hardcover in the mailbox a next day or something to download, but an RSS feed or e-mails going/updating periodically.

Yes, it’s a weird concept, and definitely one that might need some getting used to, but for a daily commuter with an iPhone or BlackBerry, an RSS fanatic, or an e-mail-head, it could  prove as somewhat of a solution. And the best thing is, since most books are free and in the public domain, you don’t have to buy and try — just pick a book and see if it suits you.
