[Editor's note: Have you ever been a bit afraid to let your booklover flag fly? Starting a new job is always a bit nerve racking. You never know what your new co-workers will be like. If your lucky maybe you're like Emily and have made a friend because of a book you've brought to work. - Karen]
Bel Canto: One Badass Book
Last week one of my new colleagues stopped me in the hall to talk about a project. I was on my best behavior: no slouching, no sarcasm, no wild hand gestures, no uncontrollable babbling about tacos. We talked shop for a minute and then she turned to me and said quite seriously “I saw that you have Bel Canto in your cube. Isn’t it an amazing book?”
My eyes widened and I hugged her on impulse while simultaneously shaking her slender shoulders. “I have been DYING to talk about this book” I squealed.
