Abstract
Students can achieve self-motivation and a broader appreciation of
computing by reading widely about computing.  This paper advocates
discussing self-motivation with students, and suggesting that they
read widely as a means to that end.  A discussion of how to present
these ideas effectively, and an annotated list of suggested readings,
appropriate for undergraduate majors in computing, are included.
