Musings from the CU Suite

NAFCU's Weekend Reading Pile

Compiled by Anthony Demangone, Powered by NAFCU

And just like that, Summer is upon us. During the cold months, I promised that I wouldn't complain when it became hot and muggy out. I broke that promise 17 times already. It seems Northern Virginia skipped May and June and went straight to July.  When Winter rolls around next, I'll never complain about the cold. I promise. 

Now, on to this week's reading pile.
