Whether you’re relaxing on the beach in South Padre, or chilling by a lake with a cold drink, books make great companion on a Texas summer day.

Summer Reading

These pages hiding magic

Stories of beach adventures

Lazy sunny friendships

Romantic sparks that pop

Like a crisp Topo Chico

On a 105 degree Texas day

These pages turn

With stolen glances

Quick captured giggles

And long drawn out dinners

More courses than even our

Hungriest visions

These pages crinkle

Sun-baked

Salt-caked

sea spray and sunscreen

Flung on our towels as we

kick up the surf

Favorite summer day

Best summer companion

Easiest summer friend
