      EVENT DETAILS
      SWE PNW Book Club: Winter/Holiday Reads

      It's our December Book Club meeting! We know it's a busy time of year, so switching up the planned book (Ready Player One) and moving that to next year - keep reading cause we are working on a book & movie event for that one. Spoilers! For our meeting this month, we are going to tackle a few lighter topics. We are going to start with looking at our individual and group reading list goals for 2018. January is just around the corner we thought getting a jump on that reading goals list would be fun! So bring your ideas of what you might want to read, bring recommendations for others, and be ready to have a great discussion! We've found a few great TED talks to help with this discussion and getting those goals set and accomplished - and that have some pretty good reading lists if you need some ideas. Check out the list below: How to gain control of your free time (https://www.ted.com/talks/laura_vanderkam_how_to_gain_control_of_your_free_time) How to get better at the things you care about (https://www.ted.com/talks/eduardo_briceno_how_to_get_better_at_the_things_you_care_about) Inside the mind of a master procrastinator (https://www.ted.com/talks/tim_urban_inside_the_mind_of_a_master_procrastinator) My year reading a book from every country in the world (https://www.ted.com/talks/ann_morgan_my_year_reading_a_book_from_every_country_in_the_world) We hope we'll all come away from this discussion with recommendations from each other and our own tailored reading lists to tackle in 2018. Plus, we add a few of those to our Book Club list for next year too. Looking for something a bit more near term, like a book you can curl up with on a cold winter night? Well that's our bonus round discussion! Bring suggestions for your favorite holiday book - whether its a book you are going to read this holiday, a holiday themed book, or something you've read in the past, we've love to hear your thoughts on this! For this, we're hoping to take the suggestion from the group and post it back out to the section so other can also find that perfect book to read over the upcoming holidays. As a special challenge for this month, if you have a recommendation for a book, bring that book! We working on getting some pictures of our book club and would love to take a pic or you and your book - if your willing! We will also be trying to connect online for the first hour of this event. There are a limited number of online tickets (this is based on the max number that can connect via google hangouts). If you want to try joining us online or get a small group together at an alternate location and connect, sign up for this ticket type. Full disclosure: we're not sure how this is going to work this time - it's our trial run. Please forgive any technical difficulties! We hope to see you there!
