Many of the books and DVD’s on this list are award winners and best sellers by top authors. There is something here for everyone—history buffs to business majors, engineers to ecologists and even some for the younger crowd. There’s even DVD’s if you don’t feel like reading today. Be sure to check out the entire list for interesting reading for this summer and beyond!

A very special prize for readers of 7 or more of the books listed here. Want to read a biography of the smart, brave woman who was the igniting spark for the environmental movement in the 1960’s?  Anything by or about Rachel Carson would be on my list of favorites. And be sure to check out Hunt Brown’s favorites, too.  You can find these at the Dunbar Library or a public library near you or purchase them on line. You may also want to email me at sustainability@wright.edu because many of the items on this list can be borrowed this summer from the Office of Sustainability.
