New Additions to the Leisure Reading Collection!

Happy Friday, Students & Faculty!

You are hereby encouraged to swing by the Arrendale Library when you get a chance to check out the newest batch of current and popular leisure reading books. This order consisted mostly of buzzworthy summer titles, and seeing as how there are only 36 hours of summer left, you better act fast! We've got new books by Stephen King, Carl Hiaasen, Neil Gaiman, David Sedaris, Dan Brown, and Nathaniel Philbrick, among others. You'll also find some new graphic novels and a stack of recent bestsellers, including Shining Girls by Lauren Beukes, Transatlantic by Colum McCann, Red Moon by Benjamin Percy, The Silver Star by Jeannette Walls, and Waiting to Be Heard by Amanda Knox. As always, there should be something for everyone.

Piedmont College Libraries @ Goodreads

If you'd like to peruse the new titles from the comfort of your chair, they have already been added to our Goodreads page, which you can access by clicking the image above.

Have a great weekend!
