Ask almost anyone what their favorite summer activity is and you can almost guarantee they’ll tell you it’s going to the beach. Whether the There’s just so much you can do at the beach: swim in the ocean, play a round of sand volleyball, or just lay on a towel in the sun.
That doesn’t mean that the beach doesn’t come with its own set of issues. While one of my personal favorite leisurely activities to do on the beach is read a good book, that can sometimes be a challenge.
Call me crazy, but there’s just something about sitting in a beach chair with a page-turner as the sun beats down on you. Except that’s just the problem, isn’t it? While the sun beating down feels great, it doesn’t necessarily do wonders for being able to read the words on the pages. Even if you read on a Kindle, the sun can still interfere with the experience.
A lot of this has to do with the position you read in. When you’re on the beach, you only have a few options: It’s either read while in a beach chair, and risk the relentless squinting, or lay on a towel with the book in the air as you carefully try not to drop the book on your face.
If you’ve ever been there before, then you’re going to need this new innovative beach chair that we’ve been seeing everywhere—and is just what book and beach lovers need this summer.
Introducing the Ostrich Chaise Lounge, a lounge hair that contains a literal hole in the top of it so that you can put your face through to read—without the sun streaming in your eyes!
Not only that, but the chair also conveniently has slots for your arms to go through, so you can turn the pages easily, and stay comfortable the entire time.
Here’s how it works: You simply lay on your stomach on the chair and place your head and arms through their respective holes. You’re then free to read with complete shade, but still get the benefit of the sun and beach time. It’s truly a win win.
Don’t worry, you don’t HAVE to read on this chair. Once you’re done reading, you can simply lift up the chair to its seated position and close the hole so you can lay in it normally. It also includes a carrying strap to make for easy traveling.
The Ostrich Chaise Lounge comes in five beautiful colors—blue, green, pink, red, and blue and white stripes—and is able to hold a maximum of 250 pounds.
The yellow, pink and red lounge chair is currently on sale for $43.25 through Amazon, marked down from a retail price of $48.24. The blue and blue and white striped options cost $52.47.
