Your reading spirit animal is:
You’ll get caught reading at the beach!
And you’ll need the sunshine and warm sand to help fight off spine-tingling chills from reading thrillers. Sunburn won’t be the only danger you’ll be wary of when sinister beach reads like The Vacation by T.M. Logan or The Beach by Alex Garland share your beach blanket.
You’ll get caught reading at a sidewalk café!
You may be sitting at a table for one, but you’ll be serving up the book cover of your latest read for everyone who walks by. Take another sip of coffee and settle in for a generous helping of unforgettable verse with A Thousand Mornings: Poems by Mary Oliver or The Lost Words by Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris.
You’ll get caught reading in a park!
Choose a spot under a shady tree and dig into the clues of a great new mystery! Surrounded by beautiful blooms, you’ll be turning pages until the stars come out while reading Destroyer Angel by Nevada Barr or Deadhead and Buried by H.Y. Hannah.
You’ll get caught reading on a passenger jet!
Reading is a great way to pass the time while flying—and might keep overly chatty seatmates at bay. Put your tray in the upright position and keep your seat belt on as you read Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir or An Unkindness of Ghosts by Rivers Solomon.
You’ll get caught reading on a boat!
Whether it’s a rowboat or a cruise ship, you’ll be spotted dreamily drifting into the next book on your To-Be-Read list. Why not set sail with Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen or The Shape of Water by Guillermo del Toro?
