“Reading Diversions Favorites”

Have you heard about the PBS program titled “The Great American Read”? PBS is trying to determine which book out of 100 titles is the favorite book in America. The Scientific Library staff decided to use that idea and offer a similar program for NCI at Frederick employees.

We are asking everyone working at NCI at Frederick and FNLCR to vote on your “Reading Diversions Favorites.” Reading Diversions is a unique collection that includes books about science that are read for pleasure and background knowledge. We have reviewed the almost 500 titles in the collection and narrowed the list to 20 books. Now, we need your help to select the #1 most popular “Reading Diversions Favorites.”

Below is the list of 20 titles, in alphabetical order by title. After you have reviewed the list, please use this ONLINE BALLOT to vote for your favorite title. You can vote multiple times, so if you have more than one favorite, you can vote for all your favorites.

Voting will be open from October 1 through October 30, corresponding to the time during which books will be collected for the 18th Annual Book & Media Swap. Then, on Wednesday, October 31, during the opening day of the Swap, the winning “Reading Diversions Favorites” will be announced.

So, take some time this month and help us determine the “Reading Diversions Favorites” at NCI at Frederick!
