Until the Summer…

As the weather gets warmer and students rush to complete their final projects, I start looking out the window and daydreaming about traveling to new places.  Until I can hop in the car/plane/train/motorcycle sidecar, I’ll be reading these travel books at the Adrian G. Marcuse Library:

1,000 Places to See Before You Die, by Patricia Schultz.  910.2 SCH
1,000!  I better get started.  How many do you think are in the tri-state area?

A frequent (and funny) contributor to the New Yorker, Peter Hessler writes about China from the perspective of a very knowledgeable and yet still sometimes befuddled American.  If you’re not curious about what it might be like to take a cross-country road trip through China, you should be.

Me Talk Pretty One Day, by David Sedaris.  814.54 SED
If you haven’t read this, go read it now.  If you have, go read it again.  David Sedaris is the funniest chain smoking, poorly speaking, movie watching American in Paris. 

Mango Languages, available from the Adrian G. Marcuse Library website databases page
Talk pretty one day in over sixty languages (including pirate) using the many courses available on Mango languages.  Many languages have courses and films, so you can choose how you’d prefer to learn.
