Reading ebooks at work

Other people have no doubt stumbled across this before, but this website by the New Zealand Book Council allows you to read classics while making it look like you're working very, very hard

http://www.readatwork.com/

Here's a screenshot, forget which one this was, I think an Edgar Allan Poe story:

a site like this *almost* makes me want to go back to working in an office (with a boss...), just so i could revel in my sly slacking off. it's not nearly so much fun if no-one is looking over your shoulder. i'll bookmark it for future use though, you never know...

truly a BRILLIANT site. you have to actually visit it and have the full experience to properly appreciate it, so i won't say any more.
