Too good to pass up...




The library staff has been working hard to add many exciting titles to the collection, some of which we're sure you won't want to pass up.

For all you ladies out there, this one is for you. Find out why we are the we are in How Women Got Their Curves and Other Just-So Stories: Evolutionary Enigmas.

Attention Cohort B, if you teach online, you may want to take a look at Teaching Writing Online: How and Why.

Always, always read the book before you see the movie. Try Julie and Julia: My Year of Cooking Dangerously. It may inspire you to do some cooking of your own.

And speaking of cooking, it may have played a pivotal role in the evolution of humans. How could how you eat your food be so important? Find out in Catching Fire: How Cooking Made Us Human.

Do you buy organic? It may not be enough to protect ourselves and the environment according to Andrew Szasz in Shopping Our Way to Safety: How We Changed From Protecting the Environment to Protecting Ourselves.

Hint, hint to students taking Sociology--this book may be of interest: Obesity Among Poor Americans: Is Public Assistance the Problem?

Like always, this is just taste of the wonderful books we have in the library. The new books list will show you a few more, but don't forget about our other titles too. The library is chock full of interesting reads!
