Books, books, and more books

We are less than 28 days away from the last day of regular classes. Coincidentally, that's how long you can check out a book. Perfect timing I think considering we have a whole bunch of new books for you (and just in time for the holidays)!

Are you traveling this Thanksgiving? Then take a look at our new books on CD -- Flight Lessons, Glimmer Palace, and The Chopin Manuscript: A Serial Thriller.

And speaking of Thanksgiving, with all the food that you will be eating, you might want to read this beforehand. America's Food: What You Don't Know About What You Eat.

Are you a big sports fan? If so, we recently added quite a few titles for the sports aficionado.
Can You Name That Team?: A Guide to Professional Baseball, Football, Soccer, Hockey, and Basketball Teams and Leagues
Love Me, Hate Me: Barry Bonds and the Making of an Antihero
Willie Mays: The Life, the Legend
Tiki: My Life in the Game and Beyond
The Ball Is Round: A Global History of Soccer
Open: An Autobiography


Do final papers have you going crazy? Well, you might be in good company with a History of Madness.

Is science beautiful? It is to George Johnson who discusses the Ten Most Beautiful Experiments.

Of course, like always, this is just a sample of our most recent titles. The new books list has more. So be sure to check out a few, especially before Thanksgiving break!
