A Daily Dose of Pepys?

If you’ve ever thought about getting around to reading Samuel Pepys’ famous diary, there’s now another way to do that very thing without having to buy or borrow a printed copy. You can sign up to read an entry a day from a blog created for this purpose.

The Diary of Samuel Pepys is definitely a value-added Internet site: the bloggers have embeded in the diary’s text hyperlinks to further information about and illustrations of the various people, places, and things Pepys mentions. Sort of a mini-Wikipedia for All Things Pepys!

And of course, if you get hooked, you can use the blog’s archvies to “catch up” to where you’ve plunged in.
