It is WIPpet Wednesday and first of all many thanks to Emily Witt who initiated this WIPpet gathering. Now it is time for me to share the books I have read, the books I am reading, and what I plan to read in the future, and my WIPpet for this week.
So, here goes:
- What have I read?
The Sign of the Green Dragon by C. Lee McKenzie
What am I reading?
The Miracle of Small Things by Guilie Castillo-Oriard
- What do I plan to read next?
Background to my WIPpet: Daniel returns from a Marketing Meeting he’s had with his acquisition team, which Phoebe, Kirk, and Peter were a part of. Before the meeting, Peter and Kirk had had lunch with Phoebe to talk her out of resigning. (Calculation: 7= 1+6)
At three p.m. Maria was checking the budgeting figures, Daniel had brought back from the Marketing Meeting and he had practically thrown them at her.
She recalculated the columns of figures, amazed at Phoebe's precise calculations. The estimated cost analysis for the new merger would cut back on advertisement costs, ensuring employee redundancy stayed below five percent and the fifty percent subsidized meals for employees in the cafeteria was still in the budget.
Great, Phoebe, she thought as she saw Phoebe’s next suggestion.
Phoebe had suggested putting a cap on management salaries for the next three years until an outside management consultant could judge whether the methods they had used had brought a positive effect.
This woman is a smart cookie; she thought as she answered her telephone.
"Maria, is Daniel free?"
That’s it, people.
Until next week,
