Elizabeth stared out her room window and watched the rain come down. She didn’t know what to do. Rainy Saturdays are so boring. As she looked around the room, the bright cover of a book caught her eye. She reached over to the bookshelf and pulled out one of the Nancy Drew Books.
Elizabeth’s mother bought her these books two months ago. The girl placed them on her shelf, but she decided to read one now. Mystery books are always interesting.
Soon Elizabeth read page after page with excitement, unable to put the book down. A noise downstairs drew the girl’s attention away from the book. Elizabeth looked at the clock and couldn’t believe her eyes. It was
lunchtime. The girl thought: may be rainy days are not so bad after all.
