He already broke Amazon with his first choice, Moises Naim’s The End of Power. Now Mark Zuckerberg has his second pick, The Better Angels of Our Nature: Why Violence Has Declined, one that you’ll find in Falvey’s catalog as well as through E-Z Borrow and ILL.

The Facebook founder and CEO, who has over 30 million followers, has launched a new book club on Facebook as part of a challenge to himself, for 2015, to read a new book every two weeks. Whether or not he’ll have Oprah’s golden touch remains to be seen, but you have to love someone using their influence to get folks to read.


SHAMELESS SOCIAL MEDIA PLUG ☺

Do you follow the library on YouTube? We have a great array of Falvey-produced videos old and new that are instructional and entertaining. Newcomers to the channel are archival copies of Gerald Dierkes’ Highlighter videos, which debuted last semester, featuring helpful insider tips on getting the most out of the library’s resources. View and rewind to your heart’s content!


QUOTE OF THE DAY
“Be steady to your purposes and firm as a rock. This ice is not made of such stuff as your hearts may be; it is mutable and cannot withstand you if you say that it shall not.” – Frankenstein by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley


HAVE A GREAT DAY!

If you have ideas for inclusion in The 8:30 or to Library News in general, you’re invited to send them to joanne.quinn@villanova.edu.
