Top books and movies of quarantine

“Love in the Time of Cholera” by Gabriel Garcia Marques

“It seems appropriate for the strange times we are experiencing, and it is interesting to read a piece of fiction in which the characters periodically experience disease, quarantine and contact tracing just like we are.”

“Soccernomics” by Simon Kuper

“I think it’s a good read because it’s not only about soccer but also about how much better teams can do by using different statistics and data. I think anyone who likes sports or math would enjoy it.”

– freshman David Fritz
