Read-a-Thon, Chapter 3

Have you ever read by the window? I've always wanted a cushioned window seat with a lovely view of trees and flowers. Since I don't have one, I'll make do with these lovely windows and cozy window seats.

Or a comfy chair.

But a bathtub? At least there's no water to ruin the book if she drops it.

Giraffe #163 has found a window seat. Actually, a window stand.


  1. I would love to have a window seat to read at. And that girl looked oddly comfortable in the bathtub, lol.
