The Little House Series
by Laura Ingalls Wilder

a postal bookray put together by day-zee

This entire series was *RABCKed to me from a bookcrossing
friend whom I never met. He had noticed that I eventually
wanted to collect all 9 books, and release them as a set;
and then sent all of them to me before I had a chance to
find any myself!

This Bookray goes out in honour of DrSlump612.
It will reach 8 readers (myself included) in the
bookcrossing community. As each bookcrosser reads the
entire series, they will contact the next person on the list
by Private Message (PM). After receiving a reply
with the next person's address, it will be sent along on it's
journey. It will be fun to share eachothers thoughts
as we re-live the story over and over again through the
bookcrossing journals. When it reaches the last person
on the list, a new fate will be decided for these wonderful little books.

There is no time limit in the reading of these books -
There are nine of them. Just keep in mind that there are
other people waiting to have just as much fun with them as
you're going to have. Please, also journal each book as
you complete them, so that each bookcrosser involved can
estimate when to expect them.

Have fun everyone! And enjoy! :)

Bookcrossers will be highlighted
as they receive the series: -->

Journal Entry 4 by day-zee from Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada on Wednesday, January 09, 2008

8 out of 10

I don't think I ever read this one as a child... I have a vague memory of my mom telling me that this one was for boys ;)

I'll say it again, these books are great. I love how the way of life is broken down so that it gives the reader the feeling of 'hey, I could do that!' It really makes you appreciate how our relatives lived before online shopping, central heating, and pizza pops. :D

This one is focussed on Almanzo, as the previous books were related to Laura, but I couldn't help wondering what Laura was up to as I was reading this one. I felt that this one was a teeensy bit detatched from the 'family' feeling you get from the previous two, and could tell that the author was not writing from personal experience. It did not ruin the story however, and I think this book would do a good job standing on its own out of the series-- I suppose that's no different than the other two I've read so far either.

And mom was right. A great book for a little boy. :)

On to the next!

I couldn't get into the book at first because I was expecting it to be about the Ingalls, but I really enjoyed it towards the end. Makes me very intrigued to know how they meet later on in life!
