Little Women Literary Reference List and Alcott Reading Challenge

When I was rereading Shirley, a lot of footnotes reminded me how often older authors were well-versed in literary works to be constantly referencing all their works, and this caused the list of Little Women literary references to mind, and then Tarissa’s Alcott Reading Challenge reminded me again.

Unlike Hagrid, however, I prefer the cute or beautiful ones, no dragons for me! Pygmy puff (soft purple) Tiny owl like Pigwidgeon Unicorn (white… Continue reading Top Ten Tuesdays: Animals from Books

Classics Club Spin Title

My number 11 is Mill on the Floss. I’ve borrowed it multiple times and started to read it one of those times. I’ll have to see if I can get in on Kindle and start sooner than I did for all my other spins.
