Now the New Zealand Book Council has a twist on the boss key that lets you read great literature at your deskâ€“and still look like youâ€™re churning out important business documents. The site is called Read at Work, and when you visit it, youâ€™re confronted with a simulated Windows login screen. Logging in reveals a familiar Windows desktop, complete with folders and PowerPoint files.
But the files arenâ€™t business presentationsâ€“theyâ€™re works of literature transmuted into PowerPoint presentations. So you can read poetry by Emily Dickinson or George Orwellâ€™s â€œAnimal Farmâ€ (below) and still appear to be readying that deck for next weekâ€™s meeting.
