The Old Man and the Sea: Novel Adventures Giveaway!

Day 1 of's Novel Adventures Giveaway!

To see the rest of the giveaways click here!

Today's Question: What is your favorite thing to do at the beach?

From the Novel Adventures website: 

The Old Man and the Sea is one of Hemingway's most enduring works. Told in language of great simplicity and power, it is the story of an old Cuban fisherman, down on his luck, and his supreme ordeal -- a relentless, agonizing battle with a giant marlin far out in the Gulf Stream. Here Hemingway recasts, in strikingly contemporary style, the classic theme of courage in the face of defeat, of personal triumph won from loss. Written in 1952, this hugely successful novella confirmed his power and presence in the literary world and played a large part in his winning the 1954 Nobel Prize for Literature.

    Lay in the shade and READ, READ, READ...nothing but the smell of the ocean and the chatter of happy people. Quite the background for any GREAT book.

  3. I'm not a big beach person, but I love running into the waves then flopping down on a blanket to read in the sunshine. Repeat as temperatures require!

    Thanks for talking about this show; I had not seen it and will be tuning in!

  4. I'm not much for the sun and surf but I do occasionally go to the beach. I still like to play in the sand and read of course!

    I seriously was going to wait until all the Novel Adventures came out to watch them but I couldn't help it. That was great!!!

    My favorite thing is to put my feet in the water, wiggle my toes to bury my feet in the sand, and let the waves remove the sand. I hope that makes sense. :P

  9. Splash in the water/tan

  10. I love to read, but when I have the kids I'm usually playing with them which isn't bad...Thanks!
