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)

Aging With Freedom® addresses life after retirement from the viewpoint of the consumer. We are not the voice of any subject industry. We strive to be an independent voice.

Our website includes affiliate links as a convenience to help you purchase books that we cover in our Aging With Freedom® Book Club. If you buy a book through a referral link we receive a minor commission. We consciously use BookShop ( for book referrals rather than Amazon when possible. BookShop is fulfilled by local, independent bookstores, supporting resources, creating jobs, and making connections in real communities. Successful, proactive aging is about creating intentional connections and building community. BookShop is aligned with our vision and mission.

Aging With Freedom® selects books for the Book Club relevant to the trifecta of proactive retirement, High Wealth, High Health, High Purpose. Sometimes reviewed books are provided by the author or publisher. More often we buy just like you. The decision to buy, or not, is up to you.
