Jul 29, 2013 3:32 PM Summer Reading List: Dr. Marcia Salazar-Valentine
Simply stating, style is the "hook" that makes me choose a book when I am browsing at a bookstore or at Amazon.com. Whether it is fiction or nonfiction, the author's choice of words, the tone of the narrative, an unusual description, the underlying irony, the sense of humor, a dialog that flows naturally - this is what gets my attention and makes me turn to the second page of a book or turn to another book cover.

Jul 15, 2013 3:56 PM Summer Reading List: Dr. Heath A. Diehl '00
My reading tastes are pretty eclectic. As someone with both undergraduate and graduate degrees in literature, I can enjoy a good "classic" novel - like Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice or Thomas Hardy's Far From the Madding Crowd or Emily Brontë's Wuthering Heights. One of my favorite types of books, though, has always been the mystery novel. Since I was a kid, I have devoured mysteries - graduating from Encyclopedia Brown to Nancy Drew to Miss Marple and Sherlock Holmes. These days, I read a lot of serial mystery fiction by American women, with some of my favorites being Sue Grafton's alphabet series, Earlene Fowler's Bennie Harper series, and Mary Daheim's Bed and Breakfast series.

Jul 1, 2013 4:01 PM Summer Reading List: Nikki Chiricosta
In the summertime, I enjoy lying out by the pool and indulging in a good book. I am a big proponent of reading a book and watching the movie, but I think you have to read the book first in order to gain a complete understanding. Movies don't always allow time for the intricate details and they often change the story a little. Here are some of my favorite books that are also movies.
