Ever wanted to pretend that you are working hard when you are actually revelling in the words of Emily Dickinson,. Brian Turner or George Orwell?
Here’s your chance. The NZ Book Council has developed the amzingly slick and clever Read at Work site [www.readatwork.com]
Just go there and click on Book Council, before choosing what you want to read.
Top tip: take your lap top into the next meeting, smile and nod wisely as your manager holds forth and let yourself slip gently down to Turner’s river, sip Emily’s ‘unaccustomed wine’ and stroll into Nixon’s ‘autumn’.
Just remember to keep nodding.
[Thanks to Raewyn for the nod to this site. Loved it]
