Story Hour

I have to tell you, I'm enjoying this new project at work way too much! My current situation has to be some sort of karma/payback for the fact that I worked my a$$ off last year on a mind-numbing project. I heard a newbie complaining Friday that she was bored. I almost told her to step through Door #2 behind us where all my peers from last year are still slaving away on the same old same old.

After catching up on household chores Saturday morning, I headed to the library to try and find a stack of books for work. Now does THAT sound bizarre? I can't really tell you why, but I'll just say that we are gifted with a few periods of downtime everyday where we can sit quietly and read. And when we are working, the project is varied and interesting.

I have some new bestsellers in my hold queue, but I needed something I could read now until those come in. And I finished an entire novel last week! I searched the library stacks and came home with a good selection of books.

I started reading Say You're One of Them last night and look forward to making great progress on it this next week! : )

P.S. Getting paid for this seems criminal? HA! Unfortunately, it's not a long-term project, so if anyone can refer me to someone else who will pay me to sit and read, let me know!

Love your book choices!
Reminds me of what caused a book store employee to say, "You really have eclectic taste, don't you?"

Get to read at work?!? What next? Ice cream testing? Naps? Wonderful perk!

Beck, I posted a comment that isn't here. Please let me know what you think of the Alexander McCall Smith book. I'm a huge fan of his No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series.

Vee, the reading slowed down yesterday and today, but hopefully I'll get to it by next week! : )
