Come home to Little House
If you've read some of my earlier posts on Writings of A Misguided Blonde
, you may remember that I am a bit obsessed with the Little House books by Laura Ingalls Wilder. My dream for some time has been to write a series of children's book regarding my childhood in Michigan.
Anyway, pricing and getting things set for E-Bay, I came across an almost complete set that belonged to my cousins Abby and Emily growing up (my Aunt Robin gave me a bunch of their old books and toys to sell on E-Bay). Well, looking for hardcover versions of the books, I came across this amazing website. Some writers have built on Laura's original books (which I am not sure if I am in agreement with or not), building series based on the lives of Laura's Great-Grandmother, Grandmother, Mother, and Daughter. The whole thing now resembles the American Girl doll collection (each doll has a collection of 6 books). Anyway, if and when I have a daughter, she is definitely going to have the original books (haven't made up my mind on the others yet...). Also, I came across complete sets of Ann of Green Gables books on Amazon.com. Another favorite series of books from my childhood. I wouldn't mind having a hardcover collection of those as well.
You are never too old to be young again, are you?
