Beach Reads In August Giveaway Hop 2015


Welcome to my stop on the Beach Reads In August Giveaway Hop!! I started thinking about which book I would give away for this hop about a week or so ago. And I had a tough time picking one book, and here’s why: I don’t think there is one perfect beach read. I think the perfect beach read is whatever you’re in the mood for. I just returned from a beach vacation and my reads were rather diverse, and if you compared them to my husband’s . . . Wow. (I’m more fiction, he’s more non-fiction/philosophy. We have very different reading preferences.) It got me thinking that everyone likes different things. So, with that said, I’m giving away a book of YOUR choice (up to a $20 value, open INT so long as the Book Depository ships to you). That’s right, you get to pick whatever book you would like to read while sitting in the sand, listening to the waves, having a cold drink.
