Holiday Free Time and the Emory Libraries

In case you are looking for something to pass the time while on the plane or to enjoy by the fire, this is a good time to recommend Emory Libraries’ popular reading collections.  The library collects bestsellers and award winners in many languages, so there should be something for everyone including the kids. There is also a popular reading e-book collection, Overdrive, that includes fiction, nonfiction, audiobooks, and many of the New York Times top 100 bestsellers for 2013. If you are looking for reading recommendations,  here are some suggestions:
