Hi everyone, here are our suggested daily recommended titles in print and digital formats.
Our Digital Catalog suggested title for today is the e-book:
Retirement: Different by Design: Six Building Blocks Fundamentally Changing How Life After Work is Viewed, Planned For, and Lived
by Rick Steiner Ph.D.:
Transforming Retirement One Building Block at a Time
Retirement is more than the absence of work–it’s a different way of life requiring new vision, new purpose, and new life perspectives. You see, retirement is too important to leave to luck or circumstance; we have to plan and make them happen–our way.
Retirement: Different By Design, your bridge to the “other side of work,” presents two dynamic and innovative templates for moving seamlessly into retirement and beyond–“Retirement’s Ages and Stages” and “Retirement’s Six Fundamental Building Blocks.” Providing practical strategies and answers, not more questions, each chapter delivers insights, tools, narratives, and models for making retirement the best years of the rest of our lives. And, it’s not always about the money.
Indeed, we all can live socially rich, emotionally balanced, intellectually nourishing, healthful, and physically active retirements no matter the size of our bank accounts–this is the new retirement reality that Retirement: Different By Design offers the soon-to-be and the already retired.
RETIREMENT’S SIX FUNDAMENTAL BUILDING BLOCKS
• Physical and Emotional Health and Well-Being
• Financial Security and Continuity
• Life Transition and Acceptance
• Intergenerational Life Engagement
• Intellectual and Physical Pursuits, Interests, and Activities
• Spirituality, Meaning, Family, and Legacy

And our Print Book Suggested Read for today is:
The Trespasser by Tana French:
New York Times bestselling author Tana French is “required reading for anyone who appreciates tough, unflinching intelligence and ingenious plotting” (The New York Times). She “inspires cultic devotion in readers . . . (The New Yorker) and is “the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past 10 years” (Washington Post).
“Atmospheric and unputdownable.” – People
In bestselling Tana French’s newest “tour de force,”* being on the Murder squad is nothing like Detective Antoinette Conway dreamed it would be. Her partner, Stephen Moran, is the only person who seems glad she’s there. The rest of her working life is a stream of thankless cases, vicious pranks, and harassment. Antoinette is savagely tough, but she’s getting close to the breaking point.
Their new case looks like yet another by-the-numbers lovers’ quarrel gone bad. Aislinn Murray is blond, pretty, groomed to a shine, and dead in her catalogue-perfect living room, next to a table set for a romantic dinner. There’s nothing unusual about her—except that Antoinette’s seen her somewhere before.
And that her death won’t stay in its neat by-numbers box. Other detectives are trying to push Antoinette and Steve into arresting Aislinn’s boyfriend, fast. There’s a shadowy figure at the end of Antoinette’s road. Aislinn’s friend is hinting that she knew Aislinn was in danger. And everything they find out about Aislinn takes her further from the glossy, passive doll she seemed to be.
Antoinette knows the harassment has turned her paranoid, but she can’t tell just how far gone she is. Is this case another step in the campaign to force her off the squad, or are there darker currents flowing beneath its polished surface?
