Nothing is more relaxing than sitting down

Books are fun to read. 
Some are educational and others
can be like watching a movie in our heads!

So why not go out and get a

You know you've read a good book
when you turn the last page
and feel a little as if you have lost a friend.

I have had that feeling of sorrow many times when a wonderful book has come to an end, like my good friends have moved away.

We are a house of readers too! Looks like you are reading a classic. I must get my paws on that book!

I hate getting to the end of a good book. Makes it hard to move onto the next one.
Im currently in that situation. Has Beth read Moloka'i? It's a GREAT book!

Hugs Madi

One of our favorite times everyday is when momma takes an afternoon break and we all cuddle as she reads! Sometimes she reads out loud to us until we doze off. Did you know that you can donate your used books to and they will pay to ship them to them AND donate profits to literacy programs...just something to remember at Spring Cleaning.
