Book Club Monday

We are officially 2 weeks away from sending our oldest child, our son off to his first year of college.  No more denial.  It is here.  So every day as boxes arrive with bedding, first aid kits and closet and school supplies, I found myself ordering him the book, 1001 Things Every College Student Needs to Know by Harry Harrison.  I actually wish I had bought it sooner.  There are some great tips in there and it’s a fun read for a high school Junior or Senior as well as any age college student.   Mr. Harrison is a well-known New York Times bestselling author and his books on parenting are highly regarded.  Here are some of his words of wisdom to students in and preparing for college:

Students entering college may think they know just about everything, but…
Whether it’s their first year or fourth, college students (who think they already know everything) can always use powerful and proven tips on how to make the most of their experience. In 1001 Things Every College Student Needs to Know,Harry H. Harrison Jr.’s latest dose of trademark wit and wisdom provides practical advice ranging from class enrollment, living on campus, study habits and more, that every student-and parent-will benefit from…like buying their books before exams start!
