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



sea spray and sunscreen

Flung on our towels as we

kick up the surf

Favorite summer day

Best summer companion

Easiest summer friend
