Hi Melissa,
I am a huge fan of Jane McGrath's series with Prentice Hall.  The book at 
the level you are interested in would be "Basic Strategies for College 
Reading."

I like the series because it contains sound instructional material that 
follows the most current research and because all of the texts include 
authentic material and corresponding essays and articles.  I feel this 
material most closely replicates the types of reading and thinking that 
students are required to do in their classes and promotes transfer better 
than strict skills texts.
