I own this book, and I own Moby Dick, which you will recall I set out earlier this year to read. I haven't got past the first page (mostly because I got distracted by other books) and now I find this a lovely reason to get to it! I can hardly believe it, all these great actors and writers and also ordinary citizens of Britain - so many people volunteered that they had more readers than chapters. Isn't that wonderful? Here is the link to the site where one chapter will be read each day - appropriately named mobydickbigread.com . 135 chapters, 135 days. Here is the link to the fabulous Guardian article that discusses it.
I am most definitely tempted to join in. I can read a chapter a day. How about you? At the very least, to listen to it being read by some wonderful people. It's very exciting!
