Common Reading

Which books are college freshmen reading this fall?

Grace College chose David Batstone's Not for Sale: The Return of the Global Slave Trade--and How We Can Fight It as their common book. The Not For Sale Campaign has already inspired thousands of students to work towards ending human trafficking.

Every freshman at Tufts University is reading The Blue Death: Disease, Disaster, and the Water We Drink by Dr. Robert D. Morris.

California State University, Chico and Adams State University are among the many colleges that have chosen Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson. Appalachian State freshmen are reading The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls.

Barbara Fister of Gustavus Adolphus College has put together a
comprehensive list of freshmen common books.

  1. Be on the lookout in November for the upcoming "Books for the First-Year Student" catalog from Harper Academic. The perfect resource to make the first-year experience an enriching one!
