    1. The one that “Nellie Oleson” wrote? I wanted to read that one too. Were there others? I have read a chapter of The Wilder Life and it looks like it will be really good. I am looking forward to getting to the rest.

  1. I think I would sign up for Bird Sisters. The others require more information! I almost don’t even want to look at these lists. I have enough to keep me busy for, oh, three or four years.

  2. Ooooooh, your page always makes me say, “I want it. I want it. I want it.” I have to control myself. Luv the way you lay each book out like a store window. Have fun.

  3. I can’t wait to see what you think of The Wilder Life, it’s been on my wish list for a bit now and I think I need to bite the bullet and just get it. I’m waiting on The Bird Sisters to get here so I can dive right in. Looks like you have some good reading ahead. I so want to read the book “Nellie Olson” wrote, I think she is amazingly funny.
