Cool Find – Dracula

If you have ever read Dracula, you know it’s written as a series of diary entries and letters. Dracula also happens to be in the public domain. Since it’s no longer protected by copyright, you can do things with it. Now combine that with concept of blogging. A lady by the name of Whitney Sorrow had the brilliant idea to create a blog and release Dracula in real time. Each entry in the book will be posted on the day it was written in the book. The first entry in Dracula is on May 3rd, so that entry was posted to the blog on May 3rd. You can subscribe either by RSS or email to get each new post automatically, and if you subscribe now, you won’t have too much catching up to do. Whether you have read Dracula before or not, this looks like it’s going to be a great way to read it, and I recommend giving it a try.

A bit of trivia: Did you know that Dracula is not the only book written by Bram Stoker? He also wrote The Jewel of the Seven Stars, and Lair of the White Worm, plus some short stories.
