The Simple Dollar Weekly Roundup: Rainy Afternoon Edition

The rain is falling from the sky. My work for the day is done and I actually have a few free hours.

There is truly nothing that sounds more enjoyable to me in that situation than curl up in a comfortable chair with a great book. I’ll throw a blanket over me, get lost in a book, and lose an hour or two while the rain patters against the window.

It happens so rarely. Usually, I’ll find myself filling hours like that with other tasks. Still, those rare afternoons when I can get lost in a book are ones that I deeply value and enjoy.
