In The Loop: Summer Reading!

We are easing into summertime, and as schools wrap up the semester, and pants turn into shorts all around, we asked the Loop co-founders what’s on their summer reading list!
iPad, Kindle, or print?
Heather: Kindle for iPhone, print AND Audible! I have one of each going at all times – if I’m not working, I’m either on WeChat or reading! 
Itee: Ditto for the reading options, though Audible strictly for non-fiction and great orators like Barack Obama.
Sun protective rash guard - Kindle for iPhone reading
Kindle for iPhone and Loop Stacks Rashie for reading
and UPF50+ sun protection on your daily commute!
Last page-turner?
Itee: The Push by Audrey Audrain on Kindle (extremely intense and anxiety inducing page-turner!) and Empire of Pain: The Secret History of The Sackler Dynasty by Patrick Radden Keefe on Audible.
Heather: The Four Winds – Kristin Hannah (Audible) and The Truth About Her – Jacqueline Maley on Kindle. I also LOVED Empire of Pain!
Loop Blue Underwire Bikini - Summer Reading
Our Loop Blue Plunge Top w/Underwire and the
Loop Blue Boy Short Bottom - perfect attire
for your poolside read!
Can you remember the first book you loved?
Heather: The Mists of Avalon – OBSESSED at age 14!!!! My daughter won’t read it.
Itee: Open by Andre Agassi. I’d read loads until then, but that book has stayed with me since. Especially as tennis is one of the only sports my family and I truly enjoy watching together.
Is “bestselling” a mark of quality or groupthink?
Heather:  Neither. I expect a sticky story with bestsellers - think Little Fires Everywhere or Where the Crawdads Sing. But usually bestsellers aren’t great literature, and so usually only when I want a page-turner do I go the bestseller route. Most of the time I’d rather read something more off-beat and exquisitely written.
Itee: I think it can be a bit of both (eg: Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari), and sometimes it’s just timing.

Can you be both well-read and naive?
Heather: Of course!!
Itee: Yes! That’s why it’s so important to keep reading!
