Summer Reading at the Beach

Summer Reading at the Beach

Some lay novels on their navels,
Some hold comics in their fists,
Some build castles with book shovels
From The Times Best-seller Lists.

Some folks read beside the ocean,
Some folks read along the coast,
Some folks rub on suntan lotion,
Some folks who forgot are TOAST!

~ J. Patrick Lewis

I love reading on the beach!  (And on my bed and on the couch and in the car and pretty much anywhere... but there's just something about lying on a towel on the sand, enjoying the warm sunshine and the sound of the waves and my book, all at the same time.)  What a wonderful way to relax....

  1. What a cool poem!

    DH & I are thinking of going to the beach for a little vacation in the off season since it is warm here almost all year and all I can think of is relaxing on the warm sand with a book!!!
