For Sale: A Little House on the Prairie-Missing Windows and Mirrors

I have a stack of books sitting on my desk.

(Book Stack)

Okay, who am I kidding pretty much everywhere I go I have a stack of books within arm’s reach—even in the kitchen (of course the kitchen’s book stack is cookbooks). But the stack of books sitting on my desk right now is a little more important to me than the other stacks of books in my house. These books, with the exception of Prairie Fires and The Great Halifax Explosion are all books I’ve read before—most numerous times—and were formative in some way. The top two books are lovely leather bound Word Cloud editions of Anna Karenina and The Wizard of Oz (full disclosure, I have only read Anna Karenina one time, but it really sealed my love of Tolstoy’s writing). The next two books are anniversary editions: Little House on the Prairie (75th Anniversary Edition) and Harriet the Spy (50th Anniversary Edition).

Building Reading Life

I started this blog post on May 27 with full intent to write my feelings about a reread of Little House on the Prairie, but then I got sidetracked and away from my writing, and I didn’t finish it.
