You can use the Multi-Search (the search box on the library home page) to find resources that will help you answer this question.

The Multi-Search, like most of the library’s databases, is best searched using keywords rather than long sentences or phrases. Think of a variety of keywords that can be used to describe the question. Some keywords you may want to use might be: reading, research, college, academic, coursework, college students, fun, personal, pleasure, etc. You may be able to come up with more!

Then, combine your keywords together to form a search, using Boolean operators (AND, OR, and NOT) and other strategies like quotation marks (used around important phrases). Here are some examples of searches you may want to try:

“reading for fun” OR “reading for pleasure”

reading AND “college student”

reading AND (academic OR pleasure)
