Summer is here, and that means millions of people are packing their books and finding the perfect spot to catch up on their summer reading. Whether you’re headed to the beach, the pool, or the shady spot in your backyard, we’ve got the perfect summer reading accessories for every book lover. From devices to totes to lounge chairs, check out the list below for items to make your summer reading a breeze, all available on Amazon.

Waterproof Kindle Paperwhite

First things first, you need access to reading material. Not only is the newest Kindle the thinnest and lightest yet, with twice the storage. It’s also waterproof! That makes it the perfect pick for your beach or poolside reading.


Waterproof Case for Tablets and eReaders

Maybe you’ve already got a tablet or reading device you love and you’re not ready to splurge on the new waterproof model. No problem! Grab a waterproof case to keep your device safe from any surprise splashing.


Waterproof Case for Phones

If you prefer reading on your smartphone, we’ve got you covered! Waterproof your phone with one of these cases. Don’t worry; you can still operate your touch screen through the case to turn the page.


Reading Sunglasses

Stop struggling with balancing your sunglasses on top of your reading glasses and get some reading sunglasses! These are perfect for sunny summer reading, and they’re fashionable to boot.


Book Holder Travel Pillow

It’s too hot out there to hold your book or preferred reading device. Buy a book stand to hold it for you! This book holder doubles as a travel pillow, perfect for your time in a plane or car while traveling to your summer vacation destination.


Foldable Bookstand

A foldable bookstand may be just what you need to keep your book upright and your hands free. This small, lightweight model is easy to pack and can even be used as a bookmark to hold your place.


Wireless Earbuds

If you’re an audiobook lover, you’ll need headphones to get those words into your ears. These wireless earbuds hold a great charge and are waterproof, making them perfect for your summer audiobook pleasure.


Portable Charger

You’ll need a way to keep all of those fancy reading devices charged. This tiny yet mighty portable charger holds two and a half full charges for your average smartphone. It can also keep your kindle or wireless headphones running throughout your beach day.


Solar Charger

With all of that summer daylight, you can keep your devices running even longer with this solar charger. It’s got two USB outputs and folds down to an easy to pack size, making it handy and ecofriendly.


Floral Beach Tote

You’ll need a way to get all of your summer reading accessories to your destination. This beach tote isn’t just cute; it’s also waterproof and functional, with a zipper closure and internal pockets. It’s sure to keep your books safe and dry.


PortoVino Beach Wine Tote

If you’re looking for something to tote your books and your beverages, I recommend this insulated wine bag. It’s got space for all of your summer reading needs, plus a secret compartment that holds and dispenses up to two bottles of wine. Cheers!


The Great Gatsby S’well Bottle

With all of that sun and heat, it’s important to stay hydrated while you read. This BPA-free bottle will keep your water cool, and the triple-walled design will keep condensation off of your books.


“Kindly Go Away, I’m Reading” Wine Glass

This wine glass is perfect for anyone looking for a little peace and quiet while reading a summer page turner. Plus, it’s functional! Isn’t that what you want most from your summer reading accessories?


Beach Drink Holders

There’s nothing worse than accidentally spilling your drink on your book. These beach drink holders will keep your drink upright, even on unsteady sand. They’re also perfect for keeping your handheld devices from getting buried under beach towels.


Clip On Mini Fan

Stay cool while you read with this battery charged mini fan. It’s compact yet powerful, and the clip makes it easy to set in the right direction. If you’re reading a sturdy hardback book, try clipping it right to the cover!


8-Foot Sport-Brella

Having trouble finding the perfect shady spot for reading? Make your own with the Sport-Brella! This handy device will protect you from sun or rain, and the zippered windows make sure you can still catch a nice breeze.


Floating Lounge Chair

Turn pool time into reading time with this floating lounge chair. This cushioned chair is perfect for reading in the water, as long as you’re using a waterproof device. No inflation required!


Lounge Chair with Hole for Face

Do you like to read while lying on your stomach? This reclining chair is perfect for you! Nestle your face in the hole on the back of the chair and hold your book on the other side. No more sore elbows from holding yourself up!


Hammock with Stand

Reading in a hammock is one of life’s greatest pleasures. This one is perfect for your summer reading: it’s affordable, it’s comfortable, and the stand folds down to make it portable. Whether you’re reading at the beach or in your own backyard, this is a must-have.


Inflatable Sofa

This inflatable lounger is ideal for any outdoor summer activity, and you won’t believe how easy it is to inflate. Just whisk it through the air! The headrest is perfect for comfort while reading, and the side pocket can hold your book or device when you’re not using it.


Recliner Chair with Umbrella

Live the summer reading dream in this versatile folding chair. The detachable footrest and umbrella create the perfect outdoor reading spot, and the adjusting hinges allow for three different reclining positions. Even better, it has a built-in bottle opener!
