My ex-boss shared this e-book preview with me this morning:
The Joy of Not Working ( http://books.google.com/books?id=xTYH7ANjjS4C&dq=the+joy+of+not+working&printsec=frontcover&source=bn&hl=en&sa=X&oi=book_result&resnum=4&ct=result#PPA10,M1 )
I've just started reading the preview (the link) and it seems really really interesting. Plus I didn't know what Riley's life means till then. This is the ideal perfectly leisurly life where one does not work but is still completely satisfied and at peace.
Read it, it sounds like fun...
