Ever since starting DailyLit, I've wanted to launch The Intellectual Devotional on DailyLit. If you're not familiar with The Intellectual Devotional, it's a bestselling book which features daily lessons from literature, history, visual arts, philosophy, religion, music, and math/science. Now, after much author-hounding, negotiation and patience, I'm thrilled to announce a DailyLit version.
It was only recently, since the death of Steve Jobs a month or so ago, that I knew I wanted to launch a series to commemorate his extraordinary life by featuring his inspirational, thought-provoking words. I hope you'll enjoy The Wisdom of (Steve) Jobs.
With these new series to feast on, I'm reminded that Thanksgiving is right around the corner. To get you in the mood, I've launched a new creative challenge to invent your own imaginative dish for Thanksgiving.
I love the way the author describes The Intellectual Devotional: "Millions of Americans keep bedside books of prayer and meditative reflection -- collections of daily passages to stimulate spiritual thought and advancement. The Intellectual Devotional is a secular version of the same -- a collection of daily lessons that will inspire and invigorate the reader. Each nugget of wisdom is drawn from one of seven fields of knowledge: History, Literature, Philosophy, Mathematics & Science, Religion, Visual Arts, and Music." And on DailyLit, the daily lessons can literally come on a daily basis. I'm thrilled to feature The Intellectual Devotional on DailyLit.
The Wisdom of (Steve) Jobs
Ever since the death of Steve Jobs, I knew I wanted to launch this series -- The Wisdom of (Steve) Jobs -- that features his words on life, design and Apple. Whether or not you believe he was a visionary or charismatic pioneer of the personal computer revolution (he was the co-founder, chairman and CEO of Apple), his words are moving, inspirational, and sometimes even shocking.
Creative Juices for Thanksgiving
Since Thanksgiving is right around the corner, this month's creative challenge is to think up a dish for Thanksgiving (recipe and all if you like). Make it literary, make it funny, make it crazy -- it's up to you. Get your creative juices flowing (so to speak!) and add your dish here. ---- DailyLit is the leading publisher of serialized books in digital form.
