Fall is here!

Notice a bit of change in the weather lately? Isn't it wonderful? I don't want to speak too soon, but maybe we're done with the tortuous 100+ degree days, at least for another year. And did you know? It's already the third week of classes! It's amazing how fast time flies!

Before things get too hectic, may we suggest a few books to check out or at least keep in mind for when those papers start piling up?

Do you need some advice on relationships, bad, good or nonexistent? Then try:
The Verbally Abusive Relationship: How to Recognize It and How to Respond by Patricia Evans
Party of One: The Loner's Manifesto by Anneli S. Rufus

Given how important foreign policy is in the upcoming election, a little history might be useful: Afghanistan: A Cultural and Political History by Thomas J. Barfield
Sudan: Race, Religion and Violence by Jok Madut Jok
A History of Libya by John Wright

The economy is also a hot topic this election season. To inform yourself, try:
The Instant Economist: Everything You Need to Know about How the Economy Works by Timothy Taylor
Back to Work: Why We Need Smart Government for a Strong Economy by Bill Clinton

And we haven't forgotten about you sports fans.
Danica: Crossing the Line by Danica Patrick
The Big Bam: The Life and Times of Babe Ruth by Leigh Montville
Aaron Rodgers: Leader of the Pack by Rob Reischel
Pigskin: The Early Years of Pro Football by Robert Peterson

I think we can safely say yes to this question, but find out why in Are Women Human? by Dorothy L. Sayers.

Okay, are you looking for something a little lighter or less academic in nature? Then try the House of Night series by P.C. Cast:
Marked: A House of Night Novel
Betrayed: A House of Night Novel
Chosen: A House of Night Novel
Untamed: A House of Night Novel

These are only a sample of the wonderful new books we have added recently. Take a look at the new books list or the catalog for more! Enjoy!
