Teeny Tiny Books


Don't you just love finding books the size of your baby finger?

There's just something terribly appealing about tiny books.

 I look for them at yard sales and used book sales and almost always find them.

They come in a startling variety of topics.

I have a small pink basket that I line with the books. 

It's about five inches long.


At Christmas time,  all the books have a holiday theme.

The rest of the year, I rotate pint-sized books on roses, sayings, and so on.

The small basket rests on the counter in the downstairs bathroom.

Guests seem to enjoy their bathroom "browsing" time.


Next time you see a tiny book, buy it and start filling a basket of your own!

DO YOU LIKE TO READ LITTLE BOOKS?

Welcome to Dieneke, this blog's 291st Follower. SO happy to have you stop by. Please visit anytime.

My old browser no longer supported Blogger so I had to download Google Chrome.

Now I have to learn everything all over again. Sure hope today's blog can be read by all.

Take care everybody. Sending hugs to all. Susan

I love books of any size, shape, or form. I've read many of those little books and they were fun to read.

Love books! Little books are usually very sweet and fun to gather like you did in a basket! I'm a bathroom magazine reader myself! LOL!
hugs, Linda

I had never thought of doing something with small books - and you changed them out for holidays - you are so wonderful. sandie

That is a great collection and a nice way of displaying them. Me and two of my best friends (the ones I worked out with years ago and lost weight with) used to exchanged tiny friendship books. Of course, at some point, we couldn't remember which ones we had already bought and gifted. I enjoy going through them ever so often. Sending hugs and blessings to you! Tammy
