Welcome to CCRC LifeCast’s Book Club!   This is the place to be for lifetime learning.

Continual learning is a long-standing lifetime goal for us as well as a cornerstone of “Active Aging.”  Our LifeCast Senior Living Online Book Club will focus on successful aging research and CCRC-related topics. We will post the books we are reading and periodically add our review of the best book.

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. The experts don’t always get it right or think of everything. Shared comments are often the best part of a review! Jump in.  (♥ = most loved books by CCRC LifeCast readers)
