I haven't read this book. I only learned it existed this morning while listening to "Little House on the Podcast". (Don't judge me. This episode-by-episode play-by-play of the TV series is my guilty pleasure). The Little House box-set, dog-eared and yellowed, still has a home on my bookshelves. I can't tell you how many times I reread them through my childhood. And even thought the TV series was a far-cry from the novels on which it was based, I loved it too.

Will I read this new book that tells the story of the Ingalls family from Ma's POV? Hell yeah!


  1. I am writing about the little house series in a couple of days (meaning, I've already written it and it'll be up soon). The tv show is my guilty pleasure as well and now that I know this exists I for sure will pick it up !

  2. Mmmmm....guilty pleasures. I read ALL the Little House books, repeatedly, when I was a kid.

  3. Interesting. I didn't read the Little House books until I was an adult. Dean read at least one when he was a kid (Farmer Boy -- because he was a farmer boy). I gave him the new biography about Laura Ingalls Wilder because he loves the books so much. Plus, Charles Ingalls lived in our hometown area when he was a child.

  4. I can't believe how many of these books I've never heard of... I'm starting to feel very inadequate.

  5. I've never read these either. But I am going to love this month, because my reading (apart from Cowboy Dan) - especially as a child - was so heavily influenced by British writers.


Catching up day 3
