As usual, there are so many incredible articles this week we had a tough time narrowing down our list for #WeekendReads! We made it a bit easier by focusing on summertime topics in two categories: Outdoor Fun and Drool-Inducing Summer Recipes.

Under Better in Digital, you’ll find some great examples of interactive, bonus, and audio content you can’t get in print. On that note, congratulations to Inc. on their redesign, which introduces a dramatically edgier look and more in-depth, interactive content. We featured their “Young. Smart. Unstoppable.” story in our Next Issue Picks.
