With the end of the spring semester, now's a good time to start thinking about summer reading. Why not try out a Kindle?
The Duke University Libraries have a small fleet of Kindles available for checkout at the Perkins and Lilly libraries. Each Kindle comes pre-loaded with more than 100 popular and recently published titles. (The Divinity and Medical Center libraries circulate Kindles containing curriculum-based titles.)
Now, just in time for summer, we've added a selection of great titles from Duke University Press to our Kindles, including some works by noted Duke faculty authors. A small sample includes:
Ian Baucom, Specters of the Atlantic: Finance Capital, Slavery, and the Philosophy of History
Jennifer Devere Brody, Punctuation: Art, Politics, and Play
Cathy N. Davidson, 36 Views of Mount Fuji: On Finding Myself in Japan
Karla F. C. Holloway, Passed On: African American Mourning Stories: A Memorial Collection
Frederic Jameson, Jameson on Jameson: Conversations on Cultural Marxism
Nannerl O. Keohane, Higher Ground: Ethics and Leadership in the Modern University
Diane M. Nelson, Reckoning: The Ends of War in Guatemala
Jocelyn Olcott, Revolutionary Women in Postrevolutionary Mexico
Priscilla Wald, Contagious: Cultures, Carriers, and the Outbreak Narrative
And many more!
