Summer literary tips

by Lara

There may be lots of lists advising you which book to read depending on how warm or cold it is outside, but we’re not really sure if there is such a thing as summer reading. Should a beach-themed book be discarded as soon as September approaches? Should you avoid bringing the Senate Intelligence Committee Report on Torture with you on holiday? We think you should actually bring it because it’s as necessary as it gets, and also because you should be able to read whatever you want whenever you want! That being said, if you’d like to explore diverse literary paths this summer, we have a few tips for you below.
