Guide to Leisure Reading: Home

This guide will help you find books that interest you for leisure reading - aka "the fun books."

Leisure Collections at WIU

In addition to over a million academic books that you can use for research in your classes, WIU Libraries also have leisure reading collections, aka "fun books." While many of these books are housed in the paperback collection on the 3rd floor of Malpass, some are scattered throughout the other floors, and some are in branch libraries such as the Curriculum Library. This guide is meant to serve as a jumping-off point to help you browse these collections online by genre.
