Spell the Month in Books April 2024

Hi hi!

Nichijou, Calendar

A very happy welcome to a new Spell the Month in Books! Today I am spelling out April!

Another easy, well, relatively, month! I had fun going through my bookshelves and find books, some letters I found instantly, others like the I took a bit longer, haha, but at least it is easier than finding 3 E’s. This time three books are from my Read shelf (Patricia wants a cuddle, Itty Bitty, and Alycat and the Sunday Scaries), and the other three two are from my Need to buy shelves (one is out and the other comes out next month).

And while the year is going by so fast, I am excited about April! Better weather! Some gardening (well, keeping an eye out for the pigeon who is roosting/sitting on its egg)! Hopefully some baking! Sitting outside again with a good book, yesss!
