rucksack

The Histories by Herodotus. Sounds esoteric and off-the-wall and maybe a bit elitist, but I recently went on a trip with very limited packing space and this was the one book I could wedge into my backpack. It kept me riveted and oddly amused for a whole week. Herodotus describes the wars fought by the Greeks against the Persians with great good humor and compassion. It's almost like reading a gossip column. Give it a try -- you'll be shocked at how laugh-out-loud funny it is in places.

Ms. Uhry, the consultant, said it was almost impossible to overstate the importance of the essay.
"The first way of separating the wheat from the chaff is to get rid of those essays in which the parents couldn't be bothered enough to write a decent essay or take this whole process seriously," she said. "It is your calling card. It is your entree."
