The Guardian recently published a disappointingly limited list of campus novels for students returning to college.
Now every summer we get the lists of great summer reading suggestions from the broadsheets and even Times Higher Education (to which I may have been a contributor) provided a selection.
So, in highly belated fashion, I thought I would share with you a handy list of the #HigherEd books you SHOULD have read this summer.
Here we go:

Surely you’ve missed out the key text “How to thrive in the ‘back offices’, tales of professional services staff”
Couldn’t find a publisher!
I’d have thought a University Press would have picked it up
how about “TEF, REF, NSS, QAA, UUK – a compendium of TLA’s for SLTs”
“Minutes in a minute – the right guide on what not to write”
