Allison — I’m sure you’re going to get lots of feedback on Workshare.

But I’m interested in your reading and discussion group.  Can you tell us more 
about this?  You are already being built — good for YOU! —

Why did you form this particular group?

When in the group's timeline did this group materialize?

How many people participate?

What do you do w/ the material you read?  Do you present info to the whole 

How often does your reading group meet?

This is so interesting to have a group that actually reads and discusses 
information about cohousing.  This is so often left to individuals to do.  So 
not everyone has the same level of info as other people in the group. 

Please … tell us more!

One minute you’re young and fun.  And the next, you’re turning down the stereo 
in your car to see better.
