Little Women

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.

I need to read this book again! I haven't read it since I was about 12 or 13. "Is this to be endured? It shall not be!" ;)
Love you Jane. ;)

I have only just finished it! it is a very beautiful book and one of my favorites so far... I would have to say that the whole entire book is my favorite part! ...but since you have most handsomely demanded that I pick parts...I suppose I must. hmm.. I like, of course, "under the umbrella" it's such a wonderful chapter! and "camp laurence" is hillarious with the story they tell and the games and all! and The Pickwick Portfolio is written so funnie i was laughing so! how about when John Brooke dashes into the other room to avoid Aunt March? haha or how Amy sleeps with a clothespin on her nose? hee hee! its a good book! ITS A GOOD BOOK!!

I love this book! I thought nothing would ever share the shelf with Lord of the Rings... That was before I read Little Women. =]
