What do you read for pleasure?
I like to try new books. The major perk of having a lot of author friends is that I'm never without a book to read... I still buy and leave reviews though;-) Right now I'm working my way through some shifter romances. I didn't even know they existed until a few months ago, but they're great fun!
Describe your desk
Messy. With a lot of notes and sticky papers. I'm also very visual and like to have pictures around to associate them with the facts that I need to remember. I've been very good at keeping my desk as the only messy area at home, though. The rest of the house is generally not so awful-looking.
The Five Pandava Brothers of the ancient Hindu Epic Mahabharata represents many facets of ancient and modern lives from imperfections to ideal business leaders.
Martini Fisher introduces a different way to look at the Ancient Epic Indian Literature that is Mahabharata and present its practical lessons for the modern audience.
