Read from January 14 to 19, 2012

I can't believe I've never read the Little House books before now. I found the series at the thrift store and decided it was time to give them a try. I found Little House in the Big Woods to be a lovely story! I would have loved it as a child and I quite loved it as an adult. I love the detailed-but-not-boring description of life at that time in history. I love the little bits of humor and the wonderful storytelling. It wasn't a can't-put-it-down kind of book, but it was a thoroughly enjoyable read for me. I really wanted my boys to read these books, but I'm afraid they'd find it "boring" compared to the stories they usually read. Sad commentary I guess. The book shows how happy people can be in the simplest of circumstances, but my boys wouldn't find it stimulating enough to keep their attention. In any case *I* enjoyed it and will read the rest of the series this year (but not back to back).
