Little Women

I am not a big reader...my excuse I don't have time make time to read.  Sure I read in High School and I enjoyed it very much.  Although I was struggling to learn and read the English language I enjoyed and remember some of the books I read  "Of Mice and Men", "Lord of the flies", "The Good Earth" this last one I read and told the story along to my mom, she loved it!


But even before that and my encounter with the English Language I fell in love with a book that I treasure and know for a fact that will never ever end up in my shop as envelopes!

My mom bought me "Mujercitas"  "Little Women"  by Louisa May Alcott I don't recall how old I was maybe 9 or 10 yrs old.  But I do remember reading that book over and over and over... placing blank paper on the pages to trace the pretty dresses.  I loved the March sisters, their kindness and their different personalities!

I saved that book as a treasure!

A couple of months ago I  found a scholastic version of the book at one of my local thrift shops and bought it for Sophia, she liked reading it, although it is a shortened version. I remembered that my beloved book was still at my mom's.  I went and got it, dusted it off and we started reading it over the summer.  I told Sophia that once we finish reading it, we would watch the movie.  Later I found the VHS movie for less than a dollar at another thrift shop!

What a treat!  I could tell Sophia liked the story too because once in a while she gets the movie out and starts watching it!
In fact we watched it two nights ago!




Have you read the book or watched the movie??
It's one of my all time favorites...not that I've read a lot!

  3. Es un libro que he leido más de una vez. Vi la peli de Winona y no me gustó
    Lo gracioso es que mientras leía el libro yo me imaginaba a Laura Ingalls como Jo

  4. OMG I love it! Firstly, are those pics of your copy? That looks like a great older copy. Mine is just your bog standard print. I've read both Little Women and Good Wives countless times. And I watch the movie at least once a year. I cry every single time I watch it. Fantastic book xx
