With all that we’ve had going on lately, Feb. 1 is sneaking up on me. With the month of February comes the annual Laura Ingalls Wilder Reading Challenge, which will take place February 1-18.
The idea is to read anything by or about Laura Ingalls Wilder during the month of February since her birth and death both occurred in February. I posted a Laura-related book list here, if you’re looking for something other than the Little House books.
Some have also incorporated some LIW activities during that month! It’s not required, but I love to see and hear about it.
I’ll have a sign-up post here on February 1st. You can join in any time during the month. You don’t have to have a blog to participate, but if you do, I welcome you to post about the books you read or any activities you might do, and/or post a wrap-up of your LIW reading at the end of the month and link to our wrap-up post here on Feb. 28. If you don’t have a blog, you can let us know in the comments on that post what you read.
No need to share now what you are going to read: you can save that for our sign-up post Friday. I just wanted to give you a heads-up that the Laura Ingalls Wilder Reading Challenge is coming!
Update: this year’s sign-up is here!
My daughter and granddaughter are huge Laura fans … I’m guessing they’ve lost count how many books they’ve read together.
On this week’s post, she asks me a profound question, courtesy of all the time spent with these long ago friends …
I am going to re-read the Little House books (for the “manyith” time. Looking forward to this challenge.
Have you read A Wilder Rose? It was an interesting bio of Laura’s daughter.
I read one biography of Rose years ago, but can’t remember the name of it. I remember not liking her very much after reading it. 🙂
Thank you for the heads-up, Barbara, because I completely forgot about it. I’ll need to check out the list and get something.
