Reference: Browsing Books

Read!Every once in a while someone asks me where the 'fun books' are located. I never really know how to answer that question because I've learned that one person's 'fun book' may very well meet another person's definition of terminal tedium.

However, often what the questioner means is, where are the popular reading books? The Library has a collection of (mostly paperback) books we call the Browsing Collection, and these books are arranged by the authors' last name. These tend to be of the lighter reading category and can been a good way to spend a pleasant hour or two reading in the Library, or the source of books to check out for a long weekend of not so serious reading time. The collection is located on the second floor next to some extremely comfortable chairs.
