Do a little light reading between classes!

We know you're here on campus registering for classes, so why not stop by the library while you're at it and check out some of our awesome new books. Just because classes aren't in session, doesn't mean we're not hard at work. So, here's a few tasty morsels to tempt your pre-fall taste buds.

Learn the history, evolution and clinical applications of self-esteem in Self-Esteem Across the Lifespan: Issues and Interventions, edited by Mary H.

Two steps forward, one step back? In Living Dolls: The Return of Sexism, Natasha Walter argues that the hard-won battles of feminism are being undermined by today's society.

Eloquent writing is a learned art. Learn to appreciate the written word in How to Write a Sentence by Stanley Fish.

Pet Food Politics: The Chihuahua in the Coal Mine by Marion Nestle explores the world of food safety. Find out the connection between cat food and what you eat.

Learn the history of sugar, a seemingly innocuous food with a tragic and compelling story in Sugar: A Bittersweet History by Elizabeth Abbott.

More tempting titles can be found on the new books list. Or just stop by and browse our shelves. There's always a book or two for everybody.
