The Penn Libraries regularly acquires mainstream fiction and non-fiction works for exploration and leisurely reading. Within our Bestsellers Collection display—located in Van Pelt-Dietrich Library Center, near the first-floor entrance—you will find a rotating selection of current bestsellers. These books include thrillers, mysteries, romance novels, cookbooks, graphic novels, and popular biographies. The most recent additions include The President’s Daughter: A Thriller by James Patterson and Bill Clinton, Billie Eilish by Billie Eilish, The Women of Troy by Pat Barker, and The Pepper Thai Cookbook: A Family Recipe Book from Everyone’s Favorite Thai Mom by Pepper Teigen.
You can browse the latest selection through Franklin, our online catalog, or peruse in person the next time you visit Van Pelt. Using your Pennkey, you can borrow them for a 28-day, non-renewable loan period. Keep in mind that this is shorter than our standard loan period, but these books are in high demand after all!
