February Read-Along: Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

You’re invited to join a read-along of Little Women in February!!! Suey, Kami, and Jenny are hosting it on their blogs, with 3 scheduled Twitter and blog discussions. I’m very excited because I loved this format for last year’s North and South read-along.

I just *happened* to pick up a copy of Little Women for this read-along… and I can’t wait to get started! I grew up watching the 1994 movie version and have loved the March family for so long, but I’ve never read the book. (I think I did make it through a children’s version at one point).

If you have a blog, and want to join in, you can participate by posting your answers to the 3 rounds of discussion questions as we go.

And, if you want to chime in on Twitter, we’re using the hashtag #LittleWomenRAL!

Wednesday Wonderings, [Christmas] edition 6

It’s another “Wednesday Wonderings” question! Wednesday Wonderings

‘Tis the season to be jolly…because this is the season we celebrate Christ’s birth. One of my favorite things about this season is Christmas music!!! It creates a background for memories each year, a reminder of what the season is really about. Whether it’s a song delighting in the joy of the season, the beauty of winter, the gift of Christ’s birth, or family coming home, it just makes me happy!
