"Summer was here."  I hope you have found some time for refreshing your body and mind.  The books for this month are outstanding!  You will find a great deal of essential information and guidance in the pages these outstanding authors have given.  I will be posting reviews soon, but please begin to share your comments as soon as you get a chance to read!  Remember, you don't always need to read a book from cover to cover.  You can pick and choose meaningful chapters and content, just like a buffet.

Use the links below to access these books at the Barnes and Noble website, where you may receive a 20 percent discount.  As well, COSA may receive a small percentage of each sale generated from one of these links.
