McNaughton Featured Book: Put on Your Crown

It’s becoming more and more difficult for women these days to accept themselves the way that they are. With pressure from society making us feel that we should look and act a certain way, self-loathing is on the rise. This is issue isn’t just limited to young girls; grown women have these problems as well.

Queen Latifah is a perfect example of a woman that is truly happy with herself. No matter how the media tries to change her, especially with digital enhancements of her photographs, she remains content with herself. “Put on Your Crown” is a book with the sole purpose of elevating the self-esteem levels of women in general.

This book illustrates the many adversaries she has been through concerning her image and being such a public figure. Each chapter teaches a different lesson creating the “path to Queendom”. Every girl can benefit from reading this book. We all could use a boost of self-esteem every once in a while.

“There seems to be an epidemic of lousy self-esteem in this country, especially among young women, and it concerns me deeply. We ladies have stopped putting ourselves first, and I wanted to share something with you that would help you feel empowered and make you recognize the individual and innate beauty that is you.” ~Queen Latifah

Popular Magazines for Your Enjoyment

Remember those cool books that were made available to students for leisure reading…? Well now we have magazines! The Main Campus CSU Library has provided some popular magazines for students to read and skim through while we’re taking breaks from those monotonous textbooks. Hot coffee and a good magazine sound suitable for these chilly days. There are a few selections on topics such as home, news, entertainment, science, and my personal favorite, fashion. A few of the magazines that stood out to me were Forbes, Rolling Stone, Good Housekeeping, and WSJ. These popular magazines are located on the main floor on two separate walls against the stairs. Be sure to check out some of the magazines as you walk by. What magazines will you come across?
