I have recently acquired Laura Ingles Wilder books. I got all but one of them, and I should have picked it up off the shelf as well. I was really ecstatic to find them as I have wanted to get them. I can't say how long I have been as I think it's been off and on that I've thought about them. I used to love watching the show, and so when I found out she had books I was ecstatic and wanted to read them. From what little I read It seems she wrote them in a way easy to understand and maybe more for the preteen but well I have no qualms with that, and I may be wrong on my first impression as is. So have you read the books?

I read her books several years ago and really enjoyed them. What a story and what a love of family. She was a good writer and really knew how to write a story. She write quite afew. I am always surprised by how much can be written about ones life. Yes, she wrote in a very plain language didn't she?

I suppose the allure of it is the simplicity. I've not read anymore as I still need to finish the book I am on, I was just giddy to read some so I read a few lines.

I read the books first, and the show was after. I picked up a full set of the books back in the 80's, I think. My girls haven't touched them. :-( I don't remember what site I was on, maybe Yuwie, but I ran into somebody who was related to her, a granddaughter or something...

Oh yes, I've read her books. I had to after falling in love with the show. I'm happy to say that I've read them all. I've even read the books that were based on her daughter, Rose, as well as some that were based on her mother, Caroline, and her grandmother, Martha. The books may be made for pre-teens, but I don't care. There are some wonderful stories in this books and I for one have enjoyed reading them time and time again. Happy mylotting!

Yes, I have. It was so long ago! My sister and I had the whole set. My sister loved the TV show as well, but I really didn't. But I really enjoyed the books.
