We recommend swinging by the shelves in the lobby of M-level often. With 8 new DVDs and 22 books per month, the selection is constantly changing.

Some of the new releases I’m looking forward to this month? Bird Cloud by Annie Proulx, Clara and Mr. Tiffany by Susan Vreeland and While Mortals Sleep: Unpublished Short Fiction by Kurt Vonnegut. And who needs Netflix when we’re expecting Inception, Despicable Me, and Easy A!? I’ll race you to the shelves!
