This month Rainy Day Books has gone PURPLE.

There is no other theme to the window except a glorious explosion of colour.

The book featured cover children’s, fiction and non fiction but all are a wonderful shade of bluey-purple.

Lulu and the purple pebble, The truth about cats and The dusk fairy are all great children’s picture books, 101 poems to get you through the day (and night) is beautiful poetry and Edward Rutherfords – The forest is one of his best historical books. Set in the New Forest from the time of the Norman conquest to present day this blockbuster saga has witches, wars, smuggling and sea battles.

Stephanie Alexander’s great work – Stephanie’s journal is included along with several purple and silver copies of the Guinness book of records.

Taking star place is one of my favourite authors – Louise Penny. How the light gets in is her 9th book in the critically acclaimed series featuring Chief Inspector Armand Gamache of the Surete du  Quebec, however I refuse to sell this book to anyone until they have read the other 8 in the series. This is just one of those books that has to be read in sequence.

There is also a comprehensive guide to the collecting of Rocking horses.

Do call in and admire this lovely window and enjoy the artistry as well as the books themselves. Local artist in The Basin Janette Bird has done a wonderful job of pulling together a delightful display.
