Free Book Day Part II

Hi there, old me again! :o)
So the Free Book Day was great! I forgot commenting that I do write somthing inside the cover of the book, so people don't get afraid of picking it up! This year I wrote: "April 18th is the Book's Day, and I am a Free Book. Take me to your home, read my story, and after that, set me free again, so another person with have the same pleasure you had with me." I'm sure this was the first time someone left a book to be taken in the place, not something usual here at all...
We ended up leaving two books, we had two copies of both: The Mmiracle of Lazarus, by Morris West, and The Mystery of the Blue Train, by Agatha Christie. We ended up leaving them in Alto Jequitiba's square, because in the morning, with two impatient dogs and one very upset cat in the car to get their vaccines, it would be impossible to enjoy the fun. So in the afternoon, there we went, Lucas doubled proud because to top the day, another tooth fell the previous night! Now he DOES look very funny!!
 
He left one book on the bench under the local school's founders' statue...
And the other one on another bench nearby...
As everybody knows, this is a tiny town, and the square is very seldomly used. We waited to see if anyone would pick it up, but no one passed by during the almost 20 minutes we stayed there! As I wanted to take Lucas to get an ice-cream to celebrate his new super-gappy smile, we left. The ice-cream was soo yummy, we mixed several flavours and they ended up perfect - despite Lucas' face! Funny little guy...
When we passed along the square on the way back home, the books were gone! Lucas jumped up and down as if he won the lottery! I'm happy that it became an yearly tradition for us, I bet he will remember this forever!

It's a lovely habit you've started there. Book-sharing is a joy.

Lucas looks great with his gappy teeth. He's growing up so quickly.

What a fantastic tradition! I can't believe a whole year has passed already - I remember the photos from the last time you shared books with the world, and it seems like just a couple of months ago! :)

The house is looking beautiful! I bet you are getting excited to move in!
XOXOXO
