I'm Reading in the Rain...

What is it about rainy days that make you just want to put on some fuzzy socks, curl up in a chair, and read a good book?

This summer we had a really good monsoon in general, but the last week has been fantastic.

On average in Tucson we get 1.3 inches of rain during the whole month of September. This year, from the 9th to the 15th, we got 2.3 inches in our neighborhood! Lovely, lovely, lovely.

And I got a lot of reading done in my comfy chair. Although it's still getting into the mid 90s, so just a tad too warm for the fuzzy socks!

How about you? Do you read more in rainy weather? 

P.S. The giveaway from earlier in the week is still open! So far there are only two comments, so if you comment your odds of winning are really good!


  1. We don't get much rain in Southern California this time of year either, but some came around last week. It was quite a surprise.

    BTW, I'm not sure if you know many other Tucson book bloggers, so I wanted to suggest you make the acquaintance of Rhapsody in Books if you haven't already. Jill's a very eclectic book blogger and a fun person to know. You can tell her I sent you over there :-).

  2. I wish I could say I read more in the rain- but not out here in AZ. It feels lik such a rare treat- I want to get out in it.
    Maybe on the all day misty gray sort of rainy day...
