This exists and thank God for that: Moby Dick Big Read.

It’s pretty amazing and I’m more than excited about it. Moby Dick Big Read is an online project featuring each chapter of Moby-Dick read aloud by recognizable names: David Cameron (Prime Minister of the UK), Tilda Swinton (Actress extraordinaire, herself pale white and magnificent), and Caleb Crain (writer), among others. A new chapter will be posted daily. Daily!

That’s four months of Moby-Dick.

Here’s Ms. Swinton reading the first chapter:
