stacked booksThank you for your book nominations!

The Mānoa Book Project team has been hard at work reviewing all of your suggestions and has identified seven semi-finalist books for the 2008–2009 academic year. If you would like to help select the final book, we invite you to read one or more of the books over the summer and share your opinions with us. Copies are available on loan from the Chancellor's Office. If you would like to borrow a book please call 808-956-6133 or email

The seven semi-finalist books are:

  • Intuition by Allegra Goodmam
  • Mountains Beyond Mountains by Tracey Kidder
  • The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy
  • The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
  • The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien
  • War is a Force That Gives Us Meaning by Chris Hedges
  • Zodiac by Neal Stephenson

For more information on the books, please download the Seven Semi-Finalists (PDF).
