Musings from the CU Suite

NAFCU's Weekend Reading Pile

Compiled by Anthony Demangone, Powered by NAFCU

August is upon us. It seems to be a transition month for many of us. The beginning of the end of summer. Thoughts starting to drift to school supplies and new backpacks. 

I've always been fascinated by how months, seasons, or even days of the week, get labeled, pidgeon-holed or put into boxes by society. 

August can be whatever you want it to be. Make it your own.

Now, on to this weekend's reading pile...
