Booksy - A Rainy Day

It's rainy here in Nebraska today, and that just makes me want to cuddle up under a blanket with a bowl of soup and read a book. Of course, I can't actually do that right now (since I'm at work), but it still inspired this latest collection of book-nerd gifts!

I'm going to assume you already have a great book (or two) in mind. If not, scroll through my reviews and you'll be sure to find some! Or if you are reading to your children, this children's book about rainy days is sure to please! You can prepare in advance for a rainy day by stocking up some books in this rainy day totebag. Then you can get down to the more serious business of enjoying your rainy day.

First, pull your bangs out of your eyes (if you are a lady book-lover, or a gent with long hair) with this fun little hair clip. You can also don this great long-sleeve tee if you so desire.

To set the mood, make sure you can see this pretty rain-inspired art print and that you have plenty of adequate lighting, like this really awesome book lamp. Or if you want more ambient lighting, you could light some candles on these unique book-inspired candle stands.

Nothing says cozy like curling up under a warm blanket with a cup of soup. I recommend this beautiful Christmas book quilt and this fluffy Campbell's Soup pillow for getting cozy, along with a warm pair of slippers, perhaps the kind of slippers inspired by a favorite children's book. Or, if you're a crafty sort, you could work on making your own felted slippers. Then it's time to fix some soup - check out this free taco soup recipe, or you can use a mix like this yummy vegan alphabet soup. You can put your soup in these cute, easy to handle vintage soup crocks.

While reading, you may find yourself inspired, or wanting to take notes. Using these cute rainy day notebooks can chase away the storms and provide a great surface for your thoughts!

At the end of the day, you might want to do something a little more useful, so you could use this cute checkbook cover and your checkbook to pay some bills, or maybe book a trip to somewhere warm and sunny! You could also send out a rainy day care package to let someone special know that you care.
