A thrift store "rescue". Repaired it a bit.
RABCK to day-zee.
How comforting it is to see the picture on the front of this book after so many years. I read this book to death when I was around 8-10. I got a part of the way through the series, but I always kept coming back to this one. I remember nothing of it now it's been so long, but I'm excited to finally read the full series, and then send them all on a journey together!
Thank you DrSlump612!
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! :)

Finally! I finished my last series of books (along with a few others) and I have started on this great little set of stories.
I LOVED reading this book again! I guess I hadn't realised how much I actually read this book as a child. Every chapter was familiar.
I think all children should read the "Little House" books especially these days, as they are full of family and moral values that seem to be fading in our present days of convenience.
I remember a teacher reading at least the first two books aloud to my class in grade 1, and I hope there are still a lot of teachers around who do. I remember learning how to make maple candy with the class after the Sugar Snow chapter, and going to places like the Living Prairie Museum as we were reading the books, and really enjoying the whole experience.
I have already started the next book, and will be starting a list for the bookray, as I don't think this set of books will take me too long.
Thanks again DrSlump612!
You made me feel 8 years old again! :)
forum request for ring has started.
thread is here: Little House
A lovely and warm tale of life in the Big woods. It's such a heartwarming read! Can't wait to read the next books.
The book box got here and I've started reading them. I'm reading the second book now. I don't know how long it will take, but I'll try to read them as soon as possible.
Thanks for letting me join this ray!
