Does it really count as a 2013 book if I started it in 2012? We'll count it anyway. This is probably the third or fourth time I've read this classic, and I still love it every time. This is actually three books in one, Little Women and the two short sequels that followed. I'm not as big of a fan of the sequels, but they are all together in my version so I read them that way.
A great classic, A must Have, A must read....but only once :)
