Sara Reyes | My World’s Not All Fiction…
Saturdays with Sara / February 27, 2010

This week I’ve had some blocks of time during the work day away from the office. Usually I take my laptop with me, find a place with electricity and WiFi and work, but this week was a bit different. I knew there wouldn’t be WiFi, and each stop would be about 30 minutes or less and I may not have a place to unpack a laptop even a small one, so I decided to do some “work” reading. To me, “work” reading is that stuff I’ve let slide for one reason or another that isn’t “fun” related. Or, non-fiction technical or self-help books. I took along two: HEAD FIRST AJAX: A BRAIN-FRIENDLY GUIDE and TOTALLY TONED ARMS. Opposite poles of the non-fiction spectrum for me. Something all techie and something all probably not going to happen. And to be honest, the TOTALLY TONED ARMS or Get Michelle Obama Arms in 21 Days never made it out of the bag. But I did get through two chapters of AJAX. Not sure if I’ll retain any of the knowledge but at least I tried. And I really regret I didn’t take something more fun to read…like oh, say, Shelly Laurenston‘s Mane series….
