Sorry. Make that "crossed" ... my fingers are only angry about the death of print.

The first time I read Little Women was the week I missed school because of chicken pox. That was such an itchy good week! Louisa May Alcott's books were also my escape the summer after fifth grade, and I still love them.

Little Women, walking down the street
Little Women, the kind I like to meet
Pretty Women
I don't believe you, you're not the truth
No one could look as good as you
Mercy!

Yes please! What a lovely set! We don't really buy sets at the shop where I work, so I rarely get to see things like this (to lust after).

Thank you for keeping this blog!

mocha-jo said...

I have a copy of my Grandma' Little Women that she got for Christmas as a young girl in 1949! It is one of my most treasured books.

Oh, how neat! My first visit to your site. I'd love the books for my daughter and I to read together, but even if they don't, your site is quite an eye-catcher. I'll be reading just to see such wonderful interaction with your readers, who all appear to fall under the older definition of that word, as well. :)
