Dracula Daily Unfolds the Novel in Real Time

Here's a fun way to digest an entire novel one bite at a time, and "bite" is the operative word when you are reading Bram Stoker's Dracula. The novel begins with Jonathon Harker's first diary entry on May 3, so that's the first bite, beginning today.

Bram Stoker’s Dracula is an epistolary novel - it’s made up of letters, diaries, telegrams, newspaper clippings - and every part of it has a date. The whole story happens between May 3 and November 10. So: Dracula Daily will post a newsletter each day that something happens to the characters, in the same timeline that it happens to them.

You can read those entries online at Dracula Daily, in case you join in after May 3 and need to catch up. Just keep in mind that it's in blog order, meaning you'll have to scroll back to the May 3rd entry, and then read each post above it. Once you're caught up, you can subscribe to have each entry mailed to you daily, so you don't forget and miss an entry. Reading Dracula in this manner will keep you engaged through November, just the amount of time the original story took place! -via Metafilter
