I was scrolling through Twitter the other day and saw a picture of a library... on a beach..? So after further research I discovered this was in fact a thing. This makes me very excited indeed because if there's anything more that I love than sitting and reading a good book, it's sitting and reading a good book on the beach!
I feel like libraries are so underrated now too. Going to the library was one of my favourite things to do as a kid and I honestly feel that's where my love of reading, and possibly writing, started. It's such an affordable way to keep up with the latest novels too and a great thing to get kids into.

The beach library first started in Bulgaria about 5 years ago. It was brilliant because there's nothing more annoying than being on holiday and finishing your book and then being like.. now what do I do?! So that's where the crazy idea of a beach library was born.
Now other resorts around the world have joined in on the trend including Dubai, India and Belgium. I think this is such an awesome idea and can't wait to seek them out on my future travels. In fact I am off to Belgium next month! I would also like to see some popping up along the South Coast in England. Brighton is one of my favourite places to visit and I think a beach library would fit in perfectly there.
