The Cool House: Bookiness

Tuesday, June 24, 2008


Another way to slack off at work but with the added advantage that you LOOK AS IF YOU ARE GAINFULLY EMPLOYED!
Read at Work is a really clever website brought to you by the NZ Book Council. The genius is that at a glance it looks like MS Windows. The selection - at presented it's fairly limited - includes short stories by F. Scott Fitzgerald and Tolstoy and I Bring an Unaccustomed Wine by Emily Dickinson in the form of a medical-based power point presentation. It's extremely clever but I was more interested in the format than the literature. Then again, I don't think I was the demographic they were aiming for.

The format makes you smile in a sneaky kind of way.
