If your favourite thing is to read books, there are many ways to make this even more exciting during summer. These tips will have you create a summer reading bucket list and enjoy the warmer months to the fullest, whilst continuing to make progress with your book goals.

1 Create a Summer Reading Bucket List

Writing out a summer reading bucket list can be motivating and inspire fun ideas.

If you are unsure where to start, consider including:

  • Reading at a specific place – by the pool, at the beach, on a road trip, on vacation. This can encourage you to change up your environment and soak in the sun whilst making your way through a captivating book.
  • Read books with certain themes – set during summer, on vacation or at the beach. What time is more perfect to read a summer romance novel?
  • Read books that you have avoided – due to time limits, or just forgetting they were left on the shelf. Catch up on your to-read backlog.
  • Read books with certain people – if you have a friend that shares a mutual love for reading, this is the ultimate social get-together for you both. Choose a book within a genre that you have in common and schedule in meeting to read and discuss the chapters.
  • Watch book-inspired TV & film – you can always extend your reading to watching if you do not want to overwhelm yourself. There are endless movies and series inspired by books, waiting to be enjoyed.
  • Attend book events – search your area for summer book events to meet like-minded people and explore new books or authors.

2 Invest in Reading Sunglasses

If you are planning to read outside, you should always put your safety first. Reading sunglasses combine the strength of reading glasses and the UV blocking lenses of sunglasses to offer you the ultimate protection. Extended periods of time spent in the sun can lead to harmful exposure to the UV rays, leading to damage to the eyes and skin, and causing various serious health complications.

You may want to consider purchasing reading sunglasses if you spend a large amount of time reading in the sun so that you can enjoy your summer with minimal worries.

3 Create a Reading List

Grab your favourite notebook and start writing down books that you have been meaning to read. You can add your favourite books that you want to reread, books you just have never gotten around to, books related to your interest and hobbies, classic novels that you always hear about but have not read, books everyone keeps recommending to you that you ignore, or highly-rated books from your favourite genres.

If in doubt – you can always visit your local library to explore the shelves or ask a librarian for advice on list-worthy titles.

4 Set Up a Cozy Reading Area 

Part of the reading experience is being comfortable. You have probably seen aesthetically pleasing, dreamy reading nook inspiration online, and now is your chance to indulge in setting up your own. Depending on your home, you may choose to do this near a source of natural light such as a window, or outdoors in the garden. The comfier the chairs and pillows, the better. Although, you want to avoid going too fluffy and soft in the heat – and remember a stable table or holder for your drinks to keep you cool and hydrated.

Finally, make sure to have fun! It is important that you are enjoying both reading and your summer days, so avoid doing anything that makes it feel like a chore.
