We all need a bit of fantasy and there’s nothing better, as the nights begin to close in, to get tucked up in your favourite chair and read a book, or two, or three.

There are many books that never date - they are as fresh as when they were written.  Any of the Arabian Nights books continue to delight, not only for those who have read the books in the past, but new and younger readers eager to experience the same fascination.

It’s all here at Rainy Day Books.   The present window display gives some idea of the many books that fit into this particular style of fantasy.   Visit soon, choose your own as well as a gift for someone you care about.

'FOREVER CLOVER" Swap Cards for Little Girls

The latest news from Rainy Day Books is that we are stocking the beautiful new range of "Forever Clover" Swap Cards for little girls.   This range of swap cards has been created in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, and are bright, colourful and celebrate young girls and their friendships.

With a Sticker and Activity Book, plus an Album to keep the cards in, a small collection soon grows.  There are various series of cards so that if more than one of the same card is collected, then being able to swap with friends to obtain a new card will become easy to do.

For little girls between 4 and 10, these are a beautiful gift idea for someone special.

Mother's Day is a special day, a special time, a special celebration where we say "thank you" for everything she does for us.   Everything that she is to us.   Everything that she means to us.

So this Mother's Day, as well as taking her breakfast, or meeting with the family for lunch or dinner, take time to choose a special gift.   Gifts don't have to have $100 vouchers or hampers you know.  A small trinket will be as well received as a Ferrari!   (Joking, of course!)

However, why not choose a special book for Mum.   A book by a favourite author, a new author even. A beautiful antique-looking photograph album.   A vintage collectible.    A book of any subject that she has a special interest in.   Cookery, Native Wildlife, History, Crafts, Novels, Mystery, Gardening, Fiction, Non-Fiction, Picture Books, the list goes on and on.

Visit Rainy Day Books and you'll be thrilled with your choices.   You'll also experience a warm welcome.   Children have their own little nook to spend time in while you're choosing a book for your Mum and they in turn can choose something for you.   The best of all worlds.   The world of the printed word and photo.

Meryll also has some absolutely beautiful, one-off, greeting cards created by a local photographer.  Why not get Mum a uniquely different card this Mother's Day.

There's always something "different" to find at Rainy Day Books.    Visit soon.
