The folks at the New Zealand Book Council have created a truly ingenious way to read more at work. Read At Work turns your desktop into a full screen, realistic PC looking desktop with folders, start button, recycle bin, the works. The kicker is the all the folders contain writings of famous authors and New Zealand locals. And, keeping in mind that you're reading at work, these stories are displayed in a convenient PowerPoint format. Hence your superiors won't know what you're really doing. This particular screen shot here is from Edgar Allan Poe's poem "A dream."
On the site there are short stories by Wilde, Fitzgerald, Twain, Wolfe, Tolstoy and more. Famous poems by Dickenson, TS Elliot, Poe and more. They've also got a personal favorite of mine, Orwell's "Animal Farm." The cover page of it, shown here, is just freaking brilliant!
Or maybe I've seen too many stupid Powerpoint presentations in my life so I find it funny. But alas, my description of read at work is not doing the site full justice. So stop what you're doing and go read. Who's gonna know?
What a concept!
