  1. I think I'm due for a Little Women trilogy reread. I read Old-Fashioned Girl last year I think, and I also want to find the list of books she references in Little Women, all the ones they quote or mention, I found a list someone had made awhile back, now I just need to find it again.

    1. Wow, I really like idea of reading all the books referenced in LW. That would be cool!! I'm excited to check out whatever you're reading this month, Livia!

  2. I need to check into the Aunt Jo books. I had not heard of these titles--they sound good!
