What does a scary MBA student wearing a wrap dress have to do with DailyLit? Well, not much. Except that this month I'm featuring a brand new series on Fashion Classics; a sequel to our popular MBA Mondays series; and some scary reads just in time for Hallowe'en. So cheers, to a scary, chic, business-savvy month! -Susan
Anyone else as clueless as I am about fashion styles? How happy was I when one of our readers, Alexandra Suhner Isenberg, suggested a mini-course on Fashion Classics. In just 10 installments it features stories behind the most legendary fashion items from the polo shirt to the wrap dress. And while you're thinking about your wardrobe, you can answer this week's question: what's the one thing in your closet you'll never throw away? Enter your closet keeper here.
MBA Mondays II
If you enjoyed MBA Mondays, you may now be reading the sequel, MBA Mondays II. It continues the "little business school in your inbox" with daily (or weekly, as you like) lessons from well-known V.C. Fred Wilson. And if you missed the original MBA Mondays series, you can still sign up for it here.
50 Word Fright
Get in the Hallowe'en spirit (so to speak!) by composing (or is that de-composing -- sorry, couldn't resist) your own frightful story in exactly 50 words. Check out others' creepy tales and enter your own chiller here.
Give your inbox a thrill with one of these scary reads: -Washington Irving's Legend of Sleepy Hollow; come on, how many times have you heard about this story and never had a chance to read it -- I'm in; how about you? -A collection of Edgar Allen Poe's scary reads that feature The Tell-Tale Heart; The Masque of the Red Death; and The Raven -- all in just 7 installments. -Famous Modern Ghost Stories -- a classic collection with "terrifying tales of revenge beyond the grave" and "touching pieces of love and devotion that know no (earthly) bounds". -Check out our Horror Category as well for our other scary reads.
