Ideas for Summer Reading

Have free time? Summer Reading. Books are an adventure no matter where you are.
Sure, you’ve been reading all semester; but summer is a great time to read for fun!
·  Read the Classics. (The Library owns most, if not all, of these books depending on the list used.)
· Select from America’s 100 most-loved books  -- The Great American Read 
· Consider PBS NewsHour/New York Times Book Club book of the month.
· Peruse the Popular Reading collection in the student lounge on 1st floor.
· Find book reviews and best sellers lists by searching the Library’s databases.
· Use NovelList Plus, a readers’ advisory database, to find books by genre, award, read-alikes, and more (see above for more about this).
· Browse the library shelves for fiction (e.g., American literature = PS;  English literature = PR).
· Scan the books that accompany Library displays.  They are available for check out.
· Check the New York Times Review of Books or the New York Review of Books (in the current display journals & 3rd floor periodicals).

· Ask at the Reference Desk; we might have some great suggestions!
