Bite-Sized Books

Like your literature in small chunks? is offering books sliced into five-minute chunks and delivered to your inbox. Free.

(Just to give you an idea, I've chosen Don Quixote. It's 448 chunks. I'm receiving the chunks each day, so it will only take me 64 weeks to read. That's only 16 months...)

I'm intrigued but at the same time, desperately trying to to roll my eyes. (The site's probably not for the several-book-a-week crowd.)

But then again, War and Peace is 675 chunks. At one chunk each weekday, that's 135 weeks or more than two-and-a-half years. So, about the same time as reading the actual book, then.
