I just wanted to let you know that I am still here reading away at my new copy of Little Women that I got for Christmas! Oh, I love it so much. I love the ribbon bookmark and the feel of the pages is delicious. You know how some paper is just soothing to look at and to touch? Well, the pages in this book are silky smooth and have a perfect thickness. :) Thanks "Marmee" for giving it to me!
I am currently reading the part of the book that makes me cry. And I will most likely cry through every chapter until the end. Why do I like this book? Why would I like something that makes me cry for 11 chapters straight? Because it is so real. I think that Mrs. Alcott perfectly describes the feelings that all the girls go through. It is constantly reminding me of...well, me. :) Each girl has something about her that I understand, either because they are like me, my mom or one of my sisters. Of course, it's not all sad. But so touching and beautiful.
Is anyone else reading this book right now? What part are you at? What is your favorite part so far?
I hope that all of you are having a lovely January.
