Three Books and a Movie: Home

Honors College Bundles - Three Books and a Movie

"interest is often the result of study, not merely and only a prerequisite for study." *  

Break through the wall. You can do this. Life improving. Build your mosaic.

Your local community library has these books and movies.

Pick one of the bundles given below. Notify James_Canning@uml.edu of the bundle you selected. Read the three books and watch the movie. When you finish the bundle, schedule a time to come into the Honors Thesis Room and talk about what you have read and watched. You will present your thoughts in a public, small group format. Attendees will likely ask you questions. After you present, the Honors College will recognize your efforts with a certificate.. You will be given an Honors College Sweatshirt. Perhaps you will be given something else too? We will then post your name in the table below for perpetuity for all to see. Bring reading, full-force, into your life. We encourage you to do so and we want to celebrate you when you have! All of the books below are in the Honors College Library located in O'Leary 3rd Floor. You are free to just take the book and leave with it. Bring it back when you are done. We encourage you to sign and date the inside flap of the book you read. You are also allowed to listen to the book on CDs if you wish. Most audio versions of the books can readily be obtained through your community library's network. Make time in your day. Use weekends and vacations wisely.

The books in these bundles are mostly fiction. Within each bundle there is usually one "longer" book and one easy to read young adult book. We encourage you to come over to O'Leary 300 and browse and leave with the books we have available. Give it a try. You might just be opening up new worlds.

Each book is a tile in your own personal mosaic. Build your own wonderful mosaic over time.
