Serial Reader

Just because a word has serial preceding it doesn't necessarily mean it's a bad thing. Yeah, sure, I'm not negating that serial killers are awful. So are serial warts. Serial drive-by opera singers give me the shivers. And let's not forget serial power outages that make your freezer thaw and all your meat goes bad and you have to spend the entire day cooking all the chicken you scored on sale last week at Winn Dixie.

Whew. Let's all take a breath and exhale out such negativity, shall we?

Now, on the inhale, here comes the positive . . . Serial Reader. This handy dandy app lets you read classics in bite-sized pieces. No more choking down huge passages of War and Peace or Great Expectations. Just pure, unadulterated, enjoyment of the classics in small bits that are entirely doable while you're waiting for a bus or standing in line at the grocery store.

Here's how it works:
Every day the app sends fragments of classic texts (which classic is up to you). You subscribe to a classic and voila, daily digestible chunks for you to swallow. It's a great way to finally plow through something you've always wanted to read but never had the time to sit down and study. Available for iPhones and Androids.

Spread the news to your readerly buddies. Who knows? Maybe my books will make it on there someday (cue evil laughter).

Hmmm....I may just do this. If they ask for reading suggestions, I will mention your books. :-)
