BROWSE: Bestselling Books Have Moved

by Maureen Puffer-Rothenberg on May 29, 2009 in Odum Library, Renovation

Our New York Times bestsellers (BROWSE books) have been moved to the 1st floor.

Go down the stairs in front of the 2nd floor Circulation desk, and veer off to your right. They’re arranged on tables there, by call number.

Right now you could check out Maya Angelou’s Letter to My Daughter, Laura Lippman’s Another Thing to Fall, Elizabeth George’s Careless in Red, The Yankee Years by Joe Torre, or The American journey of Barack Obama.

Happy Reading!
