Check out http://www.dailylit.com if you're online or on your iPhone fairly often and would like an excuse to do a bit more quality reading during your day. I just signed up for a Berlitz daily Spanish lesson to be delivered to my inbox. Sounds perfect! The topics and reading categories are like a visit to your local library or BN. And it's free.
How does this relate to cooking? Not sure. There are probably some cookbooks available through the site. Yeah. That's it.
