Little House Read-Along 2016
It's starting again: reading challenges for 2016!!!! I told myself I was going to keep it to a bare minimum, but the first thing I see is this reading challenge hosted by Bex @ An Armchair By The Sea and Lynn @ Smoke & Mirrors. It's the Little House Read-Along. And if you know me, The Little House stories are essential reading.
Well, The Little House series is not just reading; it is more like therapy. It takes me to a simpler time, closer to nature, and back into girlhood, when life is supposed to be pure and good and safe, and the future is nothing but bright and promising. The stories are so true, good, and significant.
I just finished reading the series this last summer, but they are so truly important to me, I hoped to find time to read them every few years. Well, it must be fate. So here I go . . .
