You can search for a subject, or just browse in a certain call number area. 

You can browse call number P in the 2nd floor library stacks. PR and PS are good places to start - those are the English and American literature sections. Librarians only buy the best-reviewed books, so what's in our library tends to be good reading!

Or, you can search the library's "Start Your Research Here " database. limiting it to Books. When you get your results, under Library Location, click "Circulating" to limit it to print books. Here are some topics to search: 

  • Search for books using terms like graphic novel or fiction or autobiographies or biographies.
  • Or, search for a more specific idea, like mystery stories or Holmes, Sherlock or horror stories or King, Stephen.
  • If you like humor, try a search for Humor, or wit and humor.
  • Search for books by Chelsea Handler, Tina Fey, David Sedaris or Lena Dunham.
  • See the links below for more. 
  • Ask a librarian or your English instructor for more ideas!
