Books!

Despite much evidence to the contrary, my life isn't all about knitting. Occasionally, I read. And as it turns out, so do most of my friends and family. Wacky, how that works.

I just finished re-reading the Little House on the Prairie series, which I haven't read since I was much younger. TV Land has been playing the series as well. I loved both the books and the series, so I was really curious about how each held up. The books continue to be wonderful (though not exactly P.C. when it comes to Indians or gender relations), and in some ways they are even more interesting and richer now, as an adult, than they were when I was much younger. The series...not so much. Treacly 70's crap. Though it might interest you to know that Mary really did go blind and Nellie really was a spoiled rotten adversary (though her circumstances were rather different).

I'll try to post about what I'm reading now tomorrow...

I've been meaning to reread the Little House series and haven't gotten to it yet. It's nice to hear that you're enjoying them as an adult. I've been watching a lot of the Waltons lately and viewing it through grown up eyes. It holds up pretty well, I think.

Which part of Michigan do you live in? I'm in northeast Indiana, grew up about 5 miles south of Sturgis, and went to Western Mich.
