Book Club

Welcome to AgingWithFreedom’s Book Club! This is the place for life-long learning.

Continual learning is a long-standing lifetime goal for us as well as a cornerstone of “Active Aging.”  AgingWithFreedom’s Book Club will focus on successful aging (health, wealth and purpose) and related topics. We will post the books we are reading and periodically add our review of the best.

The comment threads are your chance to add to the discussion. We’d love to share your review and comments.

Join us as we learn together! We’ll even plan some online chat sessions for real-time interaction. Shared comments are often the best part of a review! Jump in.  (♥ = most loved books by AgingWithFreedom’s Book Club  readers)
