Thank you for the insight. And im not sure what accusative case is, but it sounds like i would be "accusing" the noun "Schreibtisch" of being "new". Is that why its like "ich liese ein deutsche Buch" correct all my mistakes please if you feel up to it! The das/der/die form of things is confusing at the moment.
For "what is a grammatical case", see here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grammatical_case
Grammatical cases in German: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grammatical_case#German
The concept of grammatical gender may seem strange if you're a native speaker of a language without this concept. See it this way: German has three different kinds of nouns, and the rules for declension, etc., are different fore these three categories (called masculine, feminine, neuter).
Finally the correction of your sentence: "Ich lese ein deutsches Buch." But you're right, that's in accusative case as well. Usually direct objects are in accusative case.
