Feature & Follow [15]



A special thanks to Parajunkee and Alison Can Read for choosing our blog as a Featured Blog this week!

Feature & Follow is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.  It is a fun way to meet new bloggers and to keep in touch with bloggers you already know!  Please feel free to follow us via Linky, e-mail or GFC.  If you leave a comment and link, we will visit your blog, too!  Check us out on Twitter:  Cat and Jamie.


Q:   Summer Break is upon us! What would be the perfect vacation spot for you to catch up on your reading & relax?



A:   In reality, my favorite summer reading spot is sitting in the sand at my yearly vacation spot, North Myrtle Beach, S.C.  There is something inherently relaxing about scrunching the sand through your toes, listening to the ocean waves beat against the shore, and reading a great book.




In my fictional mind, the place I would most appreciate as a vacation destination and a reading spot would have to be Tahiti.  I can just picture myself laying on the beach with my toes in the Pacific, sipping on some French Polynesian umbrella drink out of a coconut and reading about my fictional escapades.





What is your most exciting vacation destination where you can read and relax the days away?  Leave us a comment and I'll follow you back!  Check out our Sinful Sirens Hop Giveaway while you're here!

Congrats on being one of the featured bloggers!

I guess we who live in states like Florida are a bit spoiled when it comes to our beaches. That's why we get away to places like the Bahama's or Jamaica!

Both those places sound nice. I've never been a big sand person though. It drives me crazy when I can't get it off of me after I'm done at the beach. :o)

Congrats on being the feature! Old follower stopping by.

Your description sounds fantastic to me <3 Especially since the weather is horrible at the moment here (looks like it's going to rain soon, again..) Wouldn't it be awesome to be like Harry Potter and just *POP* appear on the beach there :D

I'd love to go to Myrtle Beach some time. But, I wouldn't read while I was there. I'd actually swim. I love swimming in the ocean.

I don't think I could read on the beach - I can't stand sand it is the worst think ever created - sticks to everything and makes such a mess, I just couldn't do it lol. Props to you though!
