Abstract

Despite law books’ well-deserved reputation for dryness, some can make good leisure reading. In books about law, readers can find intellectual challenge; a greater understanding of their profession, its institutions, and its history; and a connection to their communities. While most of our reference work is instrumental — helping patrons satisfy specific research needs for specific projects — we should also consider opening the door to some of this valuable discretionary reading.

Keywords: reading, books, legal education, law school, law libraries
