5 minutes per day of a classic book, direct to your inbox
I was driving across the U.S. listening to an audio book about American History. Each chapter the author would mention influential books of the time. I was really impacted by the chapter on slavery and really wanted to read Uncle Tom's Cabin. With a job and family, I thought it was unlikely I'd sit down and read it cover-to-cover. As I thought about it more, I realized that even though I have a Kindle, I rarely read it, but I always read my email on the bus on the way to work.
So... what if I just received 5 minutes worth of reading per day? The whole site is basically an experiment to answer that question. Is this an enjoyable and effective way to read a book? I'm enjoying it so far, and now I'll find out if others do too!
Also, while I love coding, I hate infrastructure, even spinning up and monitoring ec2 instance annoys me for side projects, that's why I used Workers. I can just focus on the code, the platform makes it reliable and fast.
I can focus on the code and not worry at all about the infrastructure. Also, I haven't even tried to optimize the site, but it still scores highly on Google Page Speed because it's hosted automatically on Cloudflare's CDN.
Also built with Workers...
