"Books for the Break!"

As the march toward finals and break continues, let me make you aware of our next MUM Book Discussion. For those of you still around during the week following finals, we will take on Charles Dickens’ much beloved A Christmas Carol on Thursday, December 20, from 12-1 in the library. Many editions and copies are available through the libraries, as well as some film versions (see http://tinyurl.com/299mfs for a title search in the MU catalog). Please come and join us for a great discussion and a tasty treat.

Looking ahead, the group will read Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s One Hundred Years of Solitude (Miami: http://tinyurl.com/35cr7v and OhioLINK: http://tinyurl.com/37r259 ) in late January (date TBA). We will then turn to our own Eric Melbye’s novel Tru in late February (date TBA) (coming soon to a library near you!).

And, last but not least, let me direct your attention to our new book display area in the library, where my esteemed staff (full-time and student assistants) have compiled a display of “Books for Break!” The items were carefully hand chosen, represent an eclectic mix of styles and topics, and are accompanied by printed reviews (and a few cartoon reviews) to help you decide whether they might be of interest. We thought you might like to pick up a read for over the break, and this makes it easy.

Read. Relax. Enjoy. A book, and three words; you can’t go wrong.


See http://www.mid.muohio.edu/library/bookdiscussion.cfm for a list of the books and (soon) dates.
