What a great idea

Check out this post at The Common Room called Reading on the Installment Plan.

It is about a site that contains many classic books which can be sent to you (a little at a time) through your e-mail provider or RSS feed.

I signed up to receive Wives and Daughters as well as The Poems of Christina Rossetti.

I read your blog regularly but I'm not sure if I've left a comment before!

I love that image at the top of your post.

Yeah for "Wives and Daughters"!
Have you seen the dvd yet?
Some people don't believe in seeing movies before reading the books but doing that has really helped me in understanding what I'm reading. I would really be lost without doing that first-at least for the novels from the 19th century.

I just signed up for Boswell's Johnson and almost signed up for the Rosetti poems also :)

I'll go and check it out. What a great idea!
I've never read Wives and Daughters...Maybe it would be a bit much for me right now. :-) I'll see about some of my favorite poets...

I love Rosetti. So does my two-year old son. We have a children's book of her short poems about nature. He just memorized his first poem from it!

Anyway -- if you haven't read Rosetti before, I hope you'll like her as much as we do.
