SSHL Exhibit Summer 2010: Guilty Pleasures

This exhibit was on display last year, Summer 2010.  It is not the current exhibit.

Do you hide your graphic novel inside of your scholarly journal?  Is the latest Dean Koontz paperback in the bottom drawer of your desk stashed between your files?  Is the newest Nora Roberts novel on your laptop – just a click away from those annual reports?  These are examples of some guilty pleasures of the reading variety. 

This summer the Social Sciences & Humanities Library is celebrating the cheap thrills and quick reads that bring us so much pleasure!  Our Guilty Pleasures exhibit highlights books and facts from popular genres like romance, mystery, science fiction and horror.

Join us in celebrating the guilty pleasure of reading! Find the “fun” books in our collections. Share your favorites with other readers. Explore new genres and discover new favorite authors.
