Early Favorites Mini-Challenge

Hosted by Literally Speaking:

Little Women is the first book I can remember loving.  I read every version I could get my hands on.  I remember always identifying with Jo because I was like her.  Not really tom-boyish, but just marching to the beat of my own drum.  And I loved writing early on.  My aunt gave me a diary for my 10th birthday and I wrote in it faithfully.  I also liked play-acting, like the March sisters did in their attic...acting out stories that Jo had written.  I also loved Beth.  I think because I adored my younger (and only) sister and Beth and Jo's relationship reminded me of us.  In the late 70s, early 80s, there was a TV version of Little Women which starred Susan Dey (The Partridge Family) as Jo.  I remember being so excited for it.  I still love Little Women to this day.  I have reread the book a couple of times in adulthood and I watch the Winona Ryder version of the movie at least once a year!

Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment. It means so much.

I apologize for word verification, but as soon as I changed the settings from only users with Google accounts, I started receiving a ton of spam comments...within one hour of changing the settings. The bots are on high alert apparently.
