At the start of every new season, I craft a series of goals to fulfill by the end of that quarter. One of my all-time favourites took place in Winter 2009 when I set a goal to start a book club. Despite crazy schedules and infrequent get-togethers, a small but dedicated group of us had a great run and read a few books of fiction.
The following year, I created another book club called The Modern-Day Superhero Book Club. It’s a virtual book club. And all modern-day superheroes can join. So READ, share your thoughts with others and recommend your favourites. (It’s a great way to collaborate through dialogue and creativity.)
