This week, we gab about books with two professional readers, @LupitaReads’ Lupita Aquino and Missing Pages podcast host Bethanne Patrick. We talk about their reading habits, what it means to use books to escape and their favorite books of the year so far.
Plus, Veronica Roth, author of the Divergent series, is out with a new dystopian novel for adults called Poster Girl. She explains how her relationship to social media evolved while researching and writing about surveillance.
