Maria Ruud is reading “Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking” by Susan Cain. Ruud said she is interested in it because she works with introverts and gave birth to one.
Geoff Bartsh is reading “Captain Underpants,” by Dav Pilkey, out loud to his kids. It’s “one of the books that has gotten my 4-year-old reading,” said Bartsh. A warning for parents: lots of potty humor!
