The staff of the Shapiro Undergraduate Library at the University of Michigan compiled this list of books in response to requests from incoming students for summer reading suggestions. You may use the list in several ways:
- as a fresh approach to a subject studied in high school
- as an introduction to a field to be studied at U of M
- as informal learning and pleasure reading
Above all, the Library staff hopes the list will provide a stimulating glimpse into the intellectual and cultural world awaiting you at the University of Michigan.
