Your NAFCU Weekend Reading Pile

Compiled by Anthony Demangone, Powered by NAFCU

I’m jealous. No two ways about it. Today is the last day of school for Kate and Briggs.  I’ve experienced many different things in my life, but the feeling you have on the last day of school – with the entire summer out in front of you – there isn’t quite another thing like it. Somehow, I’m the parent of two rising eighth graders.

Here’s hoping you are looking forward to the summer even half as much as they are! And now, on to this weekend’s reading pile.
