I enjoy reading books that have anything at all to do with Laura Ingalls Wilder as she is an idol of mine. This is one of a few books that have Laura's articles she wrote for the Missouri Realist in it. The way she writes is fitting for today as it was during her lifetime. Here is quote from one of her articles that I liked: "While blue is without a doubt a heavenly color, it is better in skies than in one's mind ..." Very fitting. I also found this very fitting as how to make your life more simple seems to be the theme in a lot of books and magazines. In January 1924 Laura wrote an article about how to simplifying your life. I thought we could all go by her advice. She said "Here is a good New Year's resolution for us all to make: To simplify our lives as much as possible, to overcome that feeling of haste by remembering that there are just as many hours in the day as ever, and that there is time enough for the things that matter if time is rightly used." She was a very wise woman on so many things. I look for to the next book in this series.

Same. Yeah, lets 'hold our hands and petition' when you can buy the whole set at a used books store for five bucks. I know i did. But people cant get there noses out of technology, so this is the solution. NOT!! Dont waste your time writing a few peoples names on an email paper to get some book you can buy in the bookstore!! AND ITS ONLY FIVE BUCKS. Why waste twenty bucks for something digital? At my school we read some thing called books. They arent exotic, theyre just real and not digital. Its ebook minus the extra e you really dont need. So yeah, lets really petition now! For books (not ebooks) to finally rule the letter world once more. Ps if you put your real email, thats really dangerous....
