A Book-Tasting Club
Five years ago, Floridian Suzanne Beecher wanted to do something for the busiest people she knew: working mothers at the small software company she ran with her husband. "They had dreams and no time to pursue them," she says. "I thought that books could provide some answers."
So she typed up the opening chapters of Tuesday's with Morrie and emailed them to her staff. "Suddenly, these people who thought they had no time to read were turning off their TVs at night and discussing the book with their husbands," says Beecher.
Today dearreader.com has more than 300,000 members nationwide. How it works: You enter your email address at the Web site and sign up for a "club"--such as mystery, classics, business. Then, each morning for a week you receive a sample of the latest book selection, which takes no more than five minutes to read.  By Friday you'll have finished the first few chapters of, say, Steinbeck's The Moon Is Down, enough to know if you want to read the rest. The links at the end of the email will take you to a bookstore or your local library. Beecher and her staff cull selections from a network of more than 100 publishers, readers, and authors. "It's like getting that plastic spoon at an ice cream store," she says, "and tasting flavors that you might not have dared try before."
