BookRiot contributors really put their thinking caps on this past week ... fitting, as it's back-to-school season.
Here are three deep dives that caught my interest (and hopefully yours, too):
What is the millennial genre?: A lazy explanation of what the millennial fiction genre is would be to say "Sally Rooney novels," but Julia Rittenberg provides a more nuanced description of the genre, as she sees it.
How to get kids back into reading after summer break: Longtime school librarian Lucas Maxwell has tips to take over from summer reading programs, or even to supplement them next year.
The conflicting ideas readers must be able to hold: Isabelle Popp considers some of the opposing facts about reading, such as the fact that we know fiction is, well, fiction — and yet it can change our actual lives.
