      When I click on the "see the entire list here along with the faculty's recommendations" link, this comes up http://utdirect.utexas.edu/bal/roundup_search.WBX?s_event_type=BOOK&s_event_signup_url=read_reg.WBX&s_generic_event_name=Reading . It says "Reading Book List There are no sessions scheduled at this time." I do not see the entire reading list.
