In Berkeley (historic moment--I left San Francisco), reading Early India, From the Origins to AD 1300, by Romila Thapar. She has her degree in European History and, even now, after graduating, feels a sense of calm by reading Asian History. In her own words--it's comfort food. However, when asked to name a favorite author, she came up with Francis Yates, an author of not Asian, but European history.

She cofounded of a book club that reads books about nonprofits, mostly books published by Barrett Kohler publications. The other founder works for Young Nonprofit Professional Network. If you're interested in joining their book club, get in touch! She said they can always use another member.

Hi, there - finally got a chance to check out your blog. Now I feel guilty for calling out Dame Yates! Anyway, the publisher that made the donation to the Young Nonprofit Professional's Network is Berrett-Koehler. I'm all for giving them some free press in return for their generous offer. Also, just in case you have a global fandom, the YNPN book club is in the Berkeley/San Francisco area.
