Reading is an ingrained habit for most HMA-ers long before we walk through the door on our first day. Once a part of the HMA team, you begin to realize the impact reading has on the goals and improvements of all of us. Not only do we share books with each other, but we also share our knowledge and discoveries through our collaboration as a team.

Occasionally, we like to share what we’re reading so you can see what interests us, what inspires us and what path we are discovering. We’d love to hear what’s on your reading list. Feel free to share in the comments or find us on Twitter or Facebook.
