When I go on vacation in the summer, I only have two major concerns. The first, naturally, is what bikini or bathing suit I will wear, and the second is this: how many books can I cram into a one-week period? There is no doubt that bikinis and books come together to make the best possible memories on the beach.
It was just a matter of time before some genius came up with the idea of putting the two together. Matchbook.Nu is a genius Tumblr that married bathing suits with literature. Some are trashy, some are high brow, and all are awesome and creative and fun. I dare you NOT to try this on your next poolside trip.
See a few of my favorite looks and books below:

This might be a little deep for the beach, but the bikini is cute. Besides, it will make you smarter and David Foster Wallace is definitely required reading if you want to be an intellectual.
