We were blown away by the response. So, as we enjoy some much-needed downtime, we would like to provide the list of books that others are reading and recommending as part of their life-long learning strategy. Because there were so many suggestions, we are just going to provide the author and title, and you can take it from there.

As Theodore S. Geisel, aka Dr. Seuss, said: "The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go. Remember kids, reading gives you the power to be whoever you want."
I hope you enjoy some downtime, some family time or whatever you find relaxing. We are so thankful for you as RAB members; you are truly a gift.
