NAFCU's Weekend Reading Pile

Compiled by Anthony Demangone, Powered by NAFCU

"The future is already here - its just not very evenly distributed." William Gibson. 

That phrase is the reason we read, network, learn, listen to podcasts, travel to conferences, listen to webinars and do countless other things. 

What a great quote, and a great reminder. "Better" is out there somewhere. We just have to dig and find it.

Now, on to this week's reading pile!
