The Bookizie Tag

I had planned to do this tag a long time ago, but somehow it just got missed. After reading Tshhar's last post, I finally set my banana fingers to work....

My somewhat rusted memory informs me that I'd read some of these books very long ago. The titles are just vaguely familiar. And in some cases, like the Agatha Christie ones, I usually just read the pages at the beginning and the end. So that qualifies as scanning. NOT reading.

One more thing. I dunno if I'm allowed to do this, but I've added one more rule to this tag. I apologize for the adulteration.....

*Bold the titles you've read
*Italicize the ones you want to read
*Leave blank the ones that you aren't interested in.
* Add any 5 titles of your choice in this list,before you pass on the tag.

New Rule: Rate the books you have read from '*' (1) to '* * * * *' (5).

Agatha Christie - Sad Cypress * * * *
Ayn rand - The fountainhead
Ayn rand - Atlas shrugged
Anurag Mathur - The inscrutable Americans
Arthur Hailey- Hotel
Alistair maclean - The guns of navarone
Anne frank- The diary of a young girl * * * * 1/2
Danielle Steel - Full circle
Enid Blyton - the famous five series * * *
Jeffery Archer - Not a penny more and not a penny less
Jackie collins - Hollywood wives
James Hadley Chase - An ear to the ground
Ken follet - A place called freedom
Mario Puzo - the Godfather
Micheal Crichton - Airframe
Mills and boons (only two books after being okayed by my cousin. So don't u scream at me!!) * * *
Paulo Coelho - The Alchemist * * * *
Robert Ludlum - Trevayne
Sidney Sheldon - The sands of time
Suketu Mehta - The maximum city
Thomas Hardy - Far from the madding crowd

J.k. Rowling - The Potter series * * 1/2 (I'm taking revenge. How dare she kill Voldy???)
Sidney Sheldon - A stranger in the mirror
Agatha Christie - Curtain [ Poirot's last case ] [and my first Christie novel]* * * 1/2

Career Impact in times of Corona Virus

In the last few days, as India comes to terms with Covid-19 and struggles with dealing with this pandemic, one question several people are asking me relates to its impact on their careers. Coronavirus is what you hear everywhere these days. Public distancing and lockdowns are being touted as effective preventive measures to limit its spread. The highly contagious virus has brought the entire global economy to its knees. In this environment, what happens to our careers? Feb-March-April is a period when several corporates roll out their annual appraisal. Salaries are hiked, promotions granted, and career advancements planned.
