These Books Were Made For Walking! (January)

Strumpet over at Strumpet's Life has started a new monthly meme . . . These Books Were Made For Walking!! Here's her quick description . . . "Every third Wednesday of the month . . . I thought we could blog about a book and travel in some way." This month's theme: beach reads!! I've posted my response below, but I would also love to hear what you have to say as well!

What book do you most associate with the beach and why?

I don't actually have one particular book that I associate with the beach. In fact, I have not been to the beach in so long, that I sometimes wonder if I would remember what it looks like!! Just kidding!! How could I forget one of my favorite places to relax?!?! Hopefully, in the near future, we will be back within driving distance! Anyways, I digress . . . back to beach reads . . . like I mentioned, I don't associate one particular book with the beach, but I do associate particular authors. When I'm chillin' on the beach, I like to read what I call "brain candy." For me, that is absolutely nothing complex, but rather something just for fun, something that does not require my full attention at all times, something that I can easily set aside without forgetting the story line or getting lost in the details. As I think about all these things, one author in particular comes to mind for me . . . James Patterson!! His short chapters and fun reads are just perfect for lying on the beach with! Hmmm . . . do you think that if I pick up one of his books now that I would be able to at least imagine myself laying on a beach instead being in this frigid weather?!?! Maybe I should give it a try!!
