Browsing for Fiction Books in Kimbel Library

If you are looking for something fun to read over winter break, you may have already noticed that Kimbel Library does not have a "fiction section" like a public library or bookstore. Most university libraries shelve books by Library of Congress call numbers, which don't separate fiction and non-fiction. Instead, you will find fiction books in the literature section with books about novelists, poets, and other writers. Here's some ideas to start browsing:

PS3600 through PS3626 is American Literature from 2001-present
PS3550 through PS3576 is American Literature from 1961-2000
PR6100 through PR6126 is British Literature 2001-present
PR6050 through PR6076 is British Literature 1961-2000

Please feel free to ask for help at the information desk if you would like help finding specific books or authors.
