Extremely! Give me a book and a beach towel, picnic blanket, hammock, or just some soft grass and I'm in heaven.
Searching for some "summer reading" images, I stumbled upon this very cool illustration:

Love the books-as-ocean imagery; it makes me think of beach reading as surfing on storytelling waves. Now I feel a little less for staying lazy with a book in the sun when I'm at the beach. This illustration was commissioned for an article on summer reads, and the illustrator, Doug Salati, has a neat post on the evolution from conceptual rough sketches to final art.
It's cool to think of how all art--writing, drawing, sculpting, painting, acting, etc.--requires revision.
Anyway, this is my long-winded lead up to asking you: Where do you like to read in summer? Beach? Lake? Backyard?
