Bookworm, writer, radio host—I blog about history, fiction, and publishing in the Internet Age. You can find the full blog on my website. This space is for books.

Reading progress update: I've read 782 out of 1045 pages.

Little Women, Little Men, Jo's Boys - Louisa May Alcott, Elaine Showalter

Little Women, Good Wives (now part of Little Women—who knew?), and Little Men done. Jo's Boys to go. When I get to the end, I'll write a proper review. But I'm enjoying revisiting this series, if not in quite the same ways as I did when it was a childhood favorite.


And I have developed a whole new appreciation for the 1994 movie of Little Women, which is one of those rare films that turns out, from my adult perspective, to be better than the books on which it's based.
