These Books Were Made For Walking

Strumpet from Strumpet's Life has a brand new meme, and she is tagging all of us. I am at least a week late with this, as Strumpet's thought is, that this will be a thing for every third Wednesday.

The meme is called These Books Were Made For Walking and the first week's theme is:

what book do you most associate with the beach and why?
Beach reading to me is almost always without exception something light. It can be a good, fast paced thriller, a chick lit, a vampire-fantasy...well, almost anything which is not a classic or meatier contemporary literature. While I like reading both classics and contemporary, when I am on the beach I want it light. Last time I was on the beach was August 2008, where I was in Sharm el-Sheikh on the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt. I brought three books with me for a week's stay and finished them all. One of those books was Grievous Angel by Jane Hill, which I have reviewed here.

I think this is a fun meme and I look forward to more!

The image is from my own flickr photostream and it is from Dahab, also on the Sinai Peninsula. You can see my Sinai-set here.

Love the photo! And it's nicer than the snow and I see out my window! I too take light reading to the beach -- I want something I can pick up and put down at a moment's notice. And paperbacks are good so I don't have to worry about getting suntan block or water on the pages!

I'll try to remember to play next time.

Exactly Beth - a paperback which you can throw out after reading it should it have become too messed up with water, suntan cream and what not ;o)
