I don't want to be at work today. I'd much rather be anywhere else reading my book. Currently I'm reading Emma by Jane Austen. And I will admit it is much more intersting then my life.
I learned recently that Clueless, starring Alicia Silverstone and Paul Rudd and as well as a bunch of other good actors, was loosly based on this book. I loved Clueless when I was in highschool (though I think the TV show sucked) so I have a feeling how the book will turn out. I wish I had realized that the movie was based on Jane Austen's book back then, I might have read it then instead of now. But I have a pretty good idea how the book will turn out.
Ok ok, I'll confess, I rented the movie Emma starring Gwyneth Paltrow and Jeremy Northam, which like Clueless came out in the mid-nineties so I have a better idea how the book will end.
Well... and I read parts of the end of the book because I just couldn't wait...
Reading when you have a full time job, a full time family, and a tiny bit of a life is hard to do, but I'm managing. I'm not a fast reader, I like to enjoy the story and though suspense often tries to kill me, I do like it.
