Mondays: Mailbox/Where Am I/Musings

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at A Girl and Her Books. Mari of Mari Reads is hosting for the month of May.

I received one book in my mailbox! That too unsolicited from Hachette India!
Ten years working in one company, struggling to innovate or die, Sanchit Mishra - Sancho - is staring bleakly at his performance appraisal form, clueless about how to raise his ratings, when he decides to ask his colleague Pause Daniels to become his performance therapist. A delightful and thought-provoking story of an ordinary executive sucked into a secret world of anonymous superheroes out to revolutionise the business world, a parallel world that pumps some self-esteem into the protagonist. The action picks up when the firm is taken over by a multinational company who insist on a forced retirement scheme for the majority of the staff. An ugly industrial relations situation ensues leading to the kidnapping of the Human Resources Director.

I finished the following book:

1)  Borderlands by Brian McGilloway (CF)

And in the midst of reading 


1) Far to Go by Alison Pick
2) Silent Partner by Jennifer Chase

Describe the last time you were stumped for something to read, and you took measures to remedy that — either by going to the bookstore, the library, or shopping elsewhere. What book did you choose? Did it get you out of your slump?

Last year I was going through a reading slump. No book held my interest. I bought The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest by Stieg Larsson. It somewhat got me out of my reading slump. To speak the truth, I am still in a very reading mode.....

The start of the description almost sounded like chick lit with a male lead but then it moved into the decption/adventure mode - enjoy it!

Thanks for visiting my blog, Gauami! I've heard of this book, but haven't read it. Not sure if I ever will, but when you post your review. I'll definitely be closer to a final decision! Lol.
