Jodi Picoult is calling to me....

I'm sitting here at my desk trying to find ways to waste time. I have a tendency to immediately finish a task as soon as I'm given one. I hate to-do lists lingering over my head, so at times I can be a bit of an over-achiever when it comes to work.

So to pass the time, which ticks S-L-O-W-L-Y by, I'm constantly checking my Google Reader, Goodreads and hotmail. What I WANT to be doing is cracking open that brand new beautiful Change of Heart book by Jodi Picoult that is peeking out at me from my purse under the desk.


Would it be so bad to sit at my desk and immerse myself in a novel? At least I'm not sitting here painting my nails or playing video games as most secretaries are known to do. It's just wrong. I've almost finished Pride & Prejudice which at least is in ebook format, but still, nothing compares the turning of a page, its just so satisfying.

I need to win some book booty, that would make me feel A LOT better about the day. ;-)

I know what you mean...

Sometimes it's undoubtable that we are sisters... I have The Supernatural Ways of Royalty, and Atonement Child peaking out from my purse under my desk, lol....

I know I wont pull them out and read them at my desk, but still it's tempting enough to me that I decide not to pull them out of my bag before getting out of the car and heading into the office.

Oh, I check every blog I can, check and re-check my facebook and email...and wait for my manager to even show me she's around, lol.

I COULD be reading right now, or painting the bathroom, or organzing my desk at home- doesn't she know this? lol.
