What’s better than a day of reading on the beach? Absolutely nothing!
As you can see from my packing list, I brought along quite a selection of books to choose from. Right now I’m filling my oceanside hours with Tayari Jones’s An American Marriage, which follows a young married couple as the husband is wrongfully incarcerated for a crime he did not commit. It’s not exactly what I’d describe as a “beach read,” since the content is somewhat heavy, but it’s certainly a very accessible read, which makes turning pages easy peasy despite the throng of boogie boarders slapping into the waves.
I also brought along some of my favorite magazines for a bit of lighter reading: No Man’s Land, a girl-power manifesto put together by the lovely people over at The Wing, and Frankie, a whimsical Australian journal featuring photography, fashion, and arts and crafts content. I love both for their authentic, homemade feel and the pages of all-female media.
