by Stacy R. Judy, head librarian Atherton Library

“What?!” you say. “The last thing I want to do is read schoolbooks and reference material!”
The librarians feel the same way. The wonderful thing about the HPU libraries is that they offer so much more than just reference works, databases, and classroom materials. To support the literature courses, they also have large collections of fiction, perfect for leisure reading.

So, what interests you? Are you into science fiction? Try Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert Heinlein or The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury.

Is it mystery you like? A Murder is Announced by Agatha Christie, or The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes are great who-done-its.

Fans of horror? You can read It by Stephen King, or Dracula by Bram Stoker. Or is adventure more your style? Try The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas, 20,000 Leagues under the Sea, by Jules Verne, or War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells.

Romantics will find plenty to make their hearts beat faster. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte and Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen are great happily-ever-after tales.

How about humor? Try The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde or So Long, and Thanks for all the Fish by Douglas Adams.

The HPU libraries can provide these and much, much more. Political satire, dystopian futures, historical drama—the list is endless!

When the heat gets you down, the semester weighs heavy, and you just want to lay back and enjoy yourself, think of the HPU libraries. We have so much more to offer besides reference books!
Happy reading!
