Do you have any opinions on any of these books...good or bad? I'd love to hear them!
* Indicates books that I would like to complete sooner than later...Included in those * are a few books I already began, too.
# Did you notice this? My cousin offered me the Pioneer Girl manuscript which eventually became Little House in the Big Woods! It's complete with LIW's typos and errors. I placed this in the adult fiction catergory since my lovely cousin warned me of some realistic situation that are not child-appropriate. I am SO excited to have this, and it just arrived this past weekend.
So what's on your bookshelf just waiting for you to read it?
