A Nice Day for Walking

We had a beautiful sun shiny day for the first day of spring.And also a busy one. My better half had a doctor's appointment and also one for physical therapy. I had him drop me off at the park and I had a good long walk. Almost up to my usual two miles. I went further today than since my surgery. And I will go the full distance on Wed. It was so nice walking in the woods. Tiny leaves are putting out and the wild honeysuckles vines are running everywhere. Kids were wading in the creek. Some were playing ball and some were just running and playing. I had to wait awhile for my better half and picked up a book from the book box to read. I found a nice bench in the shade. I didn't have time enough to read much of my book before my better half rolled up. It's a good book, The House on the Hill. I don't recall the author but it's about scandals at the white house and politicians. It's a book of fiction but the author said he studied our history and it's actually things that's happened but of course all names are changed. I will take some of my paper back books to leave in the bookbox on Wednesday. I love the bookbox. And I hope more people will take then out and read.

A mountain bike must be so neat. Have fun. We can take a book or leave a book in the book box.

Sounds like a fine day. I actually miss going for a walk and bringing a book with me to read when it's time for rest. I should probably find the time to do that again soon.

We had a whole beautiful week, but today is grey and humid, not a day for a walk.

I've seen lots of 'little libraries' in our travels so I presume they are similar. It's free to take or donate books.

Book of fiction is usually based on facts and the author's real life experiences. That scene that I see in your image is ideal for a walk.

I love the photo and really enjoy walking in the woods too. so what is a book box? Sounds interesting - a place where people leave books they are through with for others to pick up? I use the Library...

That's exactly what it is.Put your books you want to get rid of in the box and other people take them out. Or as I sometimes do exchange them.

I like the idea of a book box. I think we should have them on every street and park. Many people toss their old books away. That makes me shudder.
