What Are We Reading?

To celebrate National Library Week, the Gallagher Law Library staff was again asked "what are you reading? What's on your nightstand, in your backpack, on your e-reader right now?"

It's no surprise that people who work in libraries tend to be people who read outside of work. What may be a surprise is the diversity of what the law library staff reads (or is reading at the moment). We're reading fiction, nonfiction, memoirs, mysteries, sci-fi, and classics. We're reading politics, history, education, sports, and books about animal behavior. And more than one of us likes dogs.

Take a look!
