Underwater library offers waterproof books to read in the pool

One annoyance many reading addicts face while on vacation is having to put their book away to float in the pool- few want to risk ruining a book with running ink and crinkled pages.

Two hotels in Florida boast a unique experience at their holiday complex The Keys Collection, perfect for book lovers, by offering a dedicated ‘underwater library’.

Unfortunately this doesn’t mean you can visit an underwater room full of books and staffed by mermaids, you can, however, check out a book suitable to read in the pool. At The Gates Hotel and 24º North Hotel in Key West, Florida, you can request a waterproof book at the front desk of each of the hotels.

Key West is known for its fun and creative events such as the Mermaid Festival, and the usual costal activities of fishing, scuba diving, and snorkelling, but the one thing that attracts a dedicated bookworm will be the promise of being able to read and swim at the same time!

Lucky guests can enjoy a wide variety of classic novels from authors such as Mark Twain, William Shakespeare, Sun Zi, and W.B. Yeats, among others.

Grab your towel and your sunscreen, we are going to float in a pool reading Shakespeare!
