Check Out Duke Press Titles on Kindle

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 (2005)
Jennifer Devere Brody, Punctuation: Art, Politics, and Play (2008)
Cathy N. Davidson, 36 Views of Mount Fuji: On Finding Myself in Japan (2006)
Karla F. C. Holloway, Passed On: African American Mourning Stories: A Memorial Collection (2002)
Frederic Jameson, Jameson on Jameson: Conversations on Cultural Marxism (2007)
Nannerl O. Keohane, Higher Ground: Ethics and Leadership in the Modern University (2006)
Diane M. Nelson, Reckoning: The Ends of War in Guatemala (2009)
Jocelyn Olcott, Revolutionary Women in Postrevolutionary Mexico (2005)
Priscilla Wald, Contagious: Cultures, Carriers, and the Outbreak Narrative (2008)

And many more!
