FAVOURITE NOVEL TO TAKE TO THE BEACH
I'm a messy beach reader. Whichever book I take will probably end covered in sand, lotion, food, drink, and will be otherwise bruised and battered by the time it comes back from its day out.
So, usually I pick a book that is easy to read and that I will probably not want to shelve for keeps.
So, I am nominating the James Bond series because they're pure escapist beach fun, and I picked up a whole bundle as old paperbacks - already yellowed and creased, with some loose pages.
