Our Summer 2015 Reading List

One of the best (and most enjoyable) ways to keep your brain sharp during the summer is by reading! If you don’t believe us, findings show that people who regularly read and write have a markedly slower decline in memory than people who don’t; the latter had a 48% faster decline in memory than people who spent what’s described as an “average” amount of time with the written word! For those of you who don’t necessarily think reading is “fun” you might be reading the wrong type of books! It’s important to explore all genres from romances, thrillers, autobiographie to historical/science fiction and find what you deem as a “page turner”! If you’re looking to explore what’s hot to read right now check out our list below:
