Perfect Places to Read as the Weather Gets Warmer

Ah spring: time to put away our fluffy coats and take out our picnic baskets. As warmer weather (hopefully) heads our way, we suggest you grab a light blanket, your favorite sandwich-making ingredients, and a bundle of books, and head towards the outdoors. Here are some of our favorite places to read as the weather gets warmer; what’s your favorite outdoor reading spot?
