Here's something for those of you who are glued to your monitors but would still like to take a break with a good book now and again: DailyLit. (This one comes courtesy the Seattle Times.)

I haven't looked it over extensively, but I did notice Jowett's translation of the Republic (part of the corpus that Housman called 'the best translation of a Greek philosopher which has ever been executed by a person who understood neither philosophy nor Greek').

The site, while offering nothing you can't get elsewhere, offers it in novel way, and I think I may actually find some use for it.
