Oooooooh I’m tellllllling!!!! Right here. Right now. :P

Oh my!!!! *blink blink* Cristina’s confession is all sorts of forbidden, but not in our usual way. This is one of those that has so many tempted to do and yet… eek *gasp* Yep.

And yet… I know it’s true, because I’ve heard it time and time again (in fact, I’ve included extras). ;)

Cristina: Ok so confession… I sneak-read at work. I can’t help it. When I have down-time, I need something to fill it and reading via Kindle Cloud reader is my go-to, every single time. It’s my weakness, but I can’t get caught reading on company time. I even have my computer screen angled a certain way to keep people from seeing it so I can have that extra second to close the browser before they head my way.

Anyways… Back to #1 Crush… the only issue with reading on company time is when I come across a book that literally has me busting a gut! You know what it’s like when you’re trying not to laugh? You laugh… much harder, and with no hope of stopping.

Every single page in this book has me rolling on the floor *figuratively speaking of course, because I’m currently on the clock* laughing. Please make it stop!

Fabi: (About a book, I’m not sure which?): “I’m only at 25% but I keep sneak reading at work. shhhh don’t tell…”

Jean: Lol fabi! I’m sneak reading at work too (well, in between checking my personal email for messages from Maryse’s blog)!

Brittney: (About This Girl: A Novel (Slammed Book 3)) These books are amazing!! I loved every second of it!! I couldn’t put them down, I even read at work!! shh!! Don’t tell :-) I will always want more, but I will leave it to my imagination for the rest!!

Kellie: (About Consequences: Book 1 of the Consequences Series) I think I need to go see a shrink! WTH! Just finished Truth, and let me tell you, My job suffered! I would litteraly sneak read at work it was so good!

Pamela: (About Undeniable) I thought Kristen Ashley could be raw but this took my breathe away. I was so taken that I was reading at work and had not noticed my boss walking in. Quite embarrassing! So glad I took Maryse advice and bought the book. I was missing a great biker book. Totally filled my void.

Elizabeth: (about When It Rains (Rains Series Book 1)) OMG Why didnt anyone say dont read at work!! how do u the answer phone while crying lol awesome awesome book. Going to pick up something lighter now before i cry again

I get a good portion of my reading done at work – and yeah, I should be working, but have they SEEN my TBR pile? And honestly, sometimes they just bore me. That’s why the Kindle App for the phone was invented, right?

When it Rains was a great book . My husband bought me a signed copy of the book. But Lisa De Jong never sent it. It so sadness me cause I have bought ever ebook she has written. We have written her letters with no avail.

I must confess I do the same at work but I’ll go further…I actually have e work to do. Shhh don’t tell. Sometimes I can’t help myself especially if it’s a really good book and it’s just there on my Kindle app and my phone is just staring at me taunting me.

I feel so much better telling someone. I’ve kept it in way too long. I’m so glad I am not the only one.

I’m relieved to see that I’m not the only one who reads at work! I seriously just can’t help it! This past week I read the entire Fallen Crest series again, including the final book. I didn’t finish it at work though because I knew there would be tears and there certainly was! I just LOVE that series! One of my top ten of all time!

Oh my…I have the biggest crush on Cristina right now because of her confession. *giggle*

And I’m with Elizabeth up there…When It Rains left me with puffy eyes and a swollen, snot-filled nose after one of the biggest book-induced ugly cries I’ve ever experienced. OMG that little projector thingy which put stars all over the room… :cry:
