Books to enjoy through life’s middle part.

Not so long ago, our average life expectancy didn’t extend much beyond 40. These days, hitting your 40s means – statistically speaking – you’ve probably got a ways to go. Thankfully, there are a million books to help you spend that extra time. And because you’ve already asked (and possibly answered) a lot of life’s big questions, reading can be as purposeful or indulgently pleasurable as you please. Here are some essential reads to help you over the hump.
