Congratulations, Class of 2017!

As colleges and universities wrap up their graduation season and high schools begin to hold their own commencement ceremonies, new graduates are beginning the next chapter of their lives.  Whether that's finding a first "real" job, navigating the pitfalls of living with a roommate, or just learning to cope with new-found independence, there are a lot of adjustments to make, and a little sage advice might come in handy. 

From the inspirational Make Your Bed by Admiral William H. McRaven, to the practical Recipes Every College Student Should Know, to the delightfully irreverent Everything I Need to Know I Learned from a Little Golden Book, we've got just the books to celebrate their accomplishments and give them a little guidance into the future.  Check out our booksellers' recommended reads for new graduates, plus a few other goodies that might prove useful!
