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 #CNMSSummerReads2023to show uswhat 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 AUGUST REVEAL!!
This month's theme -- BIOLOGY!
NONFICTION: “Lab Girl” by Hope Jahren
**FACULTY** PICK:“Behave: The Biology of Humans at Our Best and Worst” by Robert M. Sapolsky. This pick is brought to you by Dr. Tara LaGates – a neuro/behavioral professor from UMBC’s Biology Department – 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 August 25th from 3-4PM. See you there!
