When the Clock Tolls Reading O'Clock

You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me. ~ CS Lewis

Over the holidays, my husband and I visited an arts festival and I fell in love with this grandfather clock bookcase.  I didn't have time to peruse the titles offered at this little free library but that is just fine.  My cup runneth over with books.

Yesterday was Boxing Day and we went searching for (marked down after Christmas) treasure.  Our best discoveries were found at the Barnes and Noble in the city. The children's Christmas books were half price. And as I now have two different sets of grandchildren in different states, I had to buy two of each book(s).  One set to send across state lines and one set to keep at Nana's house.

Board books for little hands.

Hardbound books for little bit bigger hands.

I was so excited to find doubles of all the books. Plus I had three different gift cards to use. I ended up spending less than $40 for all the books.  I love books and I especially love reading to my grandchildren. ♥


  1. Oh these will be treasured that's for sure, my daughter has always loved books and still does to this day. To get such a great deal on top of it, well that is just icing on the cake :) We didn't make it out to any of the sales even though our star topper for our tree broke and we were going to look for a new one at the after Christmas sales

    1. Connie, have you checked online? On Monday, I went shopping with my daughter and there are still plenty of half priced Christmas items. I hope you find what you need!

  2. Hi Gina~

    What a fun day, spent looking at books, and kids books are the best! I love the Grandfather clock! What a great idea to make it into a free library . . . all kids need to read more books! What a blessing you are to your little grands!!

    Hugs and Love,

    1. Hi Barb. I DO love that grandfather clock! {{HUGS}}
