The List Giveaway

I have been meaning to do this for a while but never got around to it. A few months back I got a review copy of The List by Gail Belsky. It is a great little book with "100 ways to shake up your life".

First thing I loved about this book is the cover. It is so stylish and cute it made me want to read it:



This book has a lot of great ideas for your life list. Here are a few I might add to my 40 Before 40 list:

- Learn a Foreign Language
- Run for Office
- Do a Polar Bear Swim
- Build Your Own Piece of Furniture
- Get Hypnotized
- Learn Trapeze
- Visit an Ashram
- Shoot a Gun
- Dive Off a Cliff
- Learn to Sail
- Take up an Instrument
- Start Your Own Business
- Hire a Personal Shopper
- Skydive
- Break a Long-Held Tradition
- Try High Stakes Gambling
- Read the Classics
- Blow Glass
- Take a Year Off
- Bungee Jump

There are 80 more fabulous ideas in this book and it is great because they all have real life stories to go along with each idea.

If you would like to win a copy of this book, leave a comment with something that is on your life list before midnight on Monday. I'll announce the winner (chosen at random) on Tuesday.

Is a polar bear swim, swimming with polar bears? Similar to swimming with dolphins but a bit more dangerous? I'm not sure I would do it.

And on my life list, I want to own a house with a library!
