My posts are a little off schedule this week due to the unexpected change of computers. I can’t believe how long it takes to transfer files and get a new computer all put to rights. Its like moving house only less exciting and more frustrating.
This is just a quick post because I have to share this lovely little blog I found and the Louisa May Alcott reading challenge going on there. In The Bookcase: A place where books belong. Hop on over have a look around and join us.
As the challenge includes both books by and books about Alcott I am choosing as my selection:
- An Old-Fashioned Girl by Louisa May Alcott
- Marmee & Louisa: The Untold Story of Louisa May Alcott and Her Mother by Eve LaPlante
It is already the 15th but I’ll give it my best shot. I would love to hear what others are reading!

Oo I’m so excited, I love L M Alcott!! I’ve read quite a few of her books, ‘Little men’, ‘Eight Cousins’ and ‘Jack and Jill’ being among my favourites.
‘Little Women Abroad: The Alcott Sisters’ Letters from Europe, 1870-1871′ is a book I’d dearly love to read and own but we’re looking around the £30 mark so I was so excited to learn about ‘Marmee and Louisa’ and have just ordered a second hand copy!
I love ‘Eight Cousins’ and ‘Jack and Jill’ too, it is rare to find people who know more than Little Women and Little Men.
I’m ashamed to say I have read few biographies of Alcott mostly because I was limited to what my local library contained. But now with the internet I need to pick up my game and start learning more about my favourite writers. Its a good way to keep motivated.
Thanks for linking up. I’m sooo glad you’re on board with the reading challenge this month — that’s great! And you’ve made some excellent book choices. Now you and I both get to read An Old-Fashioned Girl together. 🙂
I have not yet read Marmee & Louisa, but am keeping it in mind — maybe on my list for next summer’s challenge. There’s still so much of Alcott I have yet to cover, even though I’m an avid fan of hers.
Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on these books!
Marmee & Louisa definitely looks interesting and promising.
