My summer plans always include three important things: sunscreen, bug spray and at least five books to read. With a lot of opportunities for outdoor time, these essentials are tucked into a tote bag and hung by the door for spontaneous outings with my 10-year-old daughter and neighbors. Often my daughter and I will disappear into our own rooms to get dressed for the day (or a river float!) and emerge wearing nearly identical outfits.
Needless to say, it’s no surprise that my beach towels end up matching my current read’s book cover. Based on this phenomenon, I thought it would be interesting to round up some great summer books with towels that, well, kind of match. Whether you’re a book person or a swim person, I hope a few of these will make you smile, and maybe even end up in your tote bag.
Happy summer! —Caitlin
