A favorite! Something that I try to keep in mind every day from Little Women -

"Have a regular hours for work and play; make each day both useful and pleasant, and prove that you understand the worth of time by employing it well. Then youth will bring few regrets, and life will become a beautiful success.”

My copy of Little Women so needs to be replaced and this would be a lovely replacement. My copy was old and beat up when I got it 55 years ago - and I still read it. It's my go-to book when I'm sick abed.

Would so like this. Need to read this again through the eyes of an adult, rather than through the eyes of a child. Think it's one of those books that you can read and understand more as an adult.

Serendipity? I am reading Little Women for the first time in 54 years of living. I was not raised on books or taken to a library....needless to say, I am behind on the classics. I am having a book discussion next Friday with my girlfriend and her 12 year old daughter. I am LOVING it! Much wisdom that continues to apply to life in 2012.
