30 before 30: Book Club

19. Join a book club

A few weeks ago, I shared my 30 before 30, a list of 30 goals I want to accomplish before I turn 30.  It’s funny how writing things down is such a catalyst for progress.  I’m halfway done with #16, began work towards #1 on Monday, and talked to my brother about him helping me accomplish #12.  A close friend is on deck to help with #30, and Jon and I made progress toward #15 over the holidays.  Whew.
