Books and Dreary Days!

Greetings, comrades! I hope you all are well. Though Monday and Tuesday were both very hot and humid, the majority of this week has been cold and rainy. On Tuesday afternoon, thunderstorms rolled in, and it has been either pouring or sprinkling ever since. Today, we thought it might be fun to go to a local book sale and see what they had there.

I came home with quite the haul!

I waddled over to my bed...

...Where I threw the heavy books down.

I stepped over to the bureau, where some of my books and magazines were sitting.

I slid those onto my bed as well.

Now that my bed had a ginormous pile of reading material sittin upon it, it was time for me to sort through and stack it all.

I placed them largest to smallest.

I hoisted them up and put all of them on top of the bureau. 

I squished them together and put a piggy bank at one end so they would all stay straight and upright.

VoilĂ !

I stood back and admired my work. I grabbed one of the books from the stack, plopped down on my bed, and read for the greater part of the afternoon.

Book sales are so fun! There are so many books to sift through, and you never know quite what you'll find. They're also especially great for rainy days! Do you like to read? Have you ever been to a book sale? How do you pass the time on a rainy day?
This has been Dani, dabbling in the purchase and organization of books on rainy days. Over and out!


  1. Coucou, Dani!
    You definitely got some good stuff! I love reading, but I particularly love reading on rainy days. I'm glad it's summer because I barely have time for pleasure reading during the school year. I've been reading some contemporary British literature to practice my English. If you need any good book recommendations, I recommend Atonement by Ian McEwan, White Teeth by Zadie Smith, and Restless by William Boyd.

  2. We love to read at our house, that is why mama and nana made us a big library in our house to hold our books, with tables and chairs to do our homework, an old rolltop desk, all set up for those rainy days and a fireplace for those frozen winter days ..
