CNMS Advising is going strong with our SUMMER BOOK CLUB CHALLENGE! The whole point of the challenge -- read ANYTHING but do it regularly! It’s like you are exercising your reading muscles and keeping them toned for the fall! Even 20-30 minutes of reading a day for at least 4-5 days of the week will help. Fiction, non-fiction, magazines, graphic novels, journals, you name it – we want to know about it!
CNMS Advising will be offering a fiction, non-fiction, and staff pick every month – all with themes directly related to your interests, majors, and careers. We will also host a virtual book club every month in order to discuss our picks and find out more about yours! This is also a great way to meet your peers!
Follow us on Instagram (@cnmsadvising) for regular updates and use the #CNMSSummerReads2023 to enter our summer giveaway. All tags will be considered for an end of summer raffle. Show us what you are reading, where you are reading, favorite quotes, and how you are staying academically fit for the fall!
We are also growing a Goodreads page which already has a ton of great books to get you started and possibly even get some insight into your field. Follow us HERE and send us book recommendations!
And now -- for the big JULY REVEAL!!
This month's theme -- CHEMISTRY!
NONFICTION: "The Radium Girls" by Kate Moore
STAFF PICK: "The Poison Squad" by Deborah Blum This pick is brought to you by Michelle Bulger – your Director of the Science and Mathematics Advising Resource Team (SMART) – enjoy!
We will go more in depth with each of these picks every week so stay tuned!
Our next virtual book club will take place on July 31st from 3-4PM. See you there!
