Books are good company, in sad times and happy times, for books are people—people who have managed to stay alive by hiding between the covers of a book.
– E.B. White
We just had to share this video with some of our fellow bibliophiles out there.
On February 21, 2013, Duke undergraduate and graduate students gathered in Perkins Library to show off their personal book collections for the Andrew T. Nadell Book Collectors Contest.
Since 1947, the Friends of the Duke University Libraries have organized the contest in alternate years to promote reading for enjoyment and the development of students’ personal libraries. Eighteen students participated in this year’s contest—a record turnout! Here’s what they had to say about the books they love best. Enjoy!
Congratulations to the winners of the 2013 Andrew T. Nadell Book Collectors Contest!
