A novel book storage idea

When our little girl unwrapped a cushion from her Grandma and Pop for Christmas, she was really excited… and so was I!

Having been to a Christmas Fayre, my lovely Mum saw these brilliant cushions that double up as a novel book storage idea!

When our little girl saw that her cousin had a similar cushion, she was even more excited.

When she unwrapped 5 new Rainbow Magic books, she slotted a couple into the little pockets on her new cushion.

What a neat idea!

The cushion now flits between her reading nook and her bed, as do the cats most days. ย I’m convinced that the cats enjoy a read when she’s not there! ย She’s even been known to take it in the car with her over the Christmas break!

Our little girl chose to spend some of her Christmas money on a Rainbow Magic bookmark, which arrived just after Christmas.

What I love is that our little girl is being so very patient (mostly) because she’s pre-ordered another Rainbow Magic book for delivery in March…

Whereas I… well I haven’t got a lovely book cushion but I have managed to explore our new (to us) library and brought a couple of books home ๐Ÿ™‚

To be perfectly honest, I was really disappointed with ‘Shadows of the Workhouse’ by Jennifer Worth. ย Having devoured a couple of her other books, I had high hopes for this one but just couldn’t get past the first couple of chapters which seemed more like character studies than the interesting insight into history that I was expecting.

So I tried a different genre, recommended to me. ย This one is by Liane Moriarty ‘Big Little Lies’ and I am enjoying it. ย It’s hard to put down and I’ll hopefully report back in a few weeks ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I’ve never seen a book cushion before, what a lovely idea. Boo enjoys those Rainbow Magic books, too, it is lovely to see kids getting into reading, isn’t it? I plan to use our library more this year, so I’ll be there as soon as I’ve made my way down my huge reading pile! Thanks for sharing with #PaperyPeep

    • Well, the rate you go through your books Jocelyn, you’ll be at your library next week! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I absolutely love that our little girl now loves to read in bed to her teddies with her torch, after her bedtime story, before she goes to dreamland ๐Ÿ™‚
