Although not everybody has the luxury of enjoying a summer vacation, the season invariably lends itself to setting aside some time to read a good book. If you’re looking to pick one up, our online resource center is packed with exciting and entertaining titles. Simply click here to access it.
Whatever your taste, I think you’ll find a title to your liking.
If you’re more inclined to invest in the classics (including some modern ones), the following list should be helpful to you. It was compiled by several of our senior members on the Focus team. It’s by no means exhaustive, but it’s a good start.
After you review it, I’d like to invite you to add to it. Please share a favorite title or two. I, and your fellow readers, would appreciate it!
