2018: A Reading Party

2 min readJun 2, 2020


In 2017 I resolved to ‘read more’. Enter, Year 33: A Reading List. On Dec 31, 2017 the discovery that I was one of the 8% of people to actually keep their new year’s resolutions inspired a resolution party for one, and, so, the #2018readingparty reading list was born!

A reading party is the best type of party!

And, let’s be honest, anything with the word “party” at the end of it automatically becomes fun!
