A Reading Challenge


Yes, another reading challenge for me to try.  This one is all about Louisa May Alcott, the author of Little Women. It was one of my favorite stories when I was a teenager.  I identified with Jo, the tomboy, the fun sister, the romantic,  the outspoken one, and the writer. Who didn't?

So, this challenge, the All Things Alcott Challenge.  What's it about? Click on the link to read the details. Essentially, participants decide how many items related to Louisa May Alcott to read, listen to, or watch that they hope to complete by December 31. My goal is the number 1. Between now and then, I will read at least one book by or about Ms. Alcott.

Update of Other Challenges
The 200 sit-up challenge. I finished that last week. Did 200 crunches all in a row. Yep, I did.

Jumping three times daily. That's on hold. My right ankle is now screwed up.

  1. Ugh, situps! You're good! I refuse to do something I find so masochistic. But I bet your abs your in great shape now! Kudos to you!

    My mother-in-law is a living character from Little Woman. She was one of 11 children, mostly girls and the squabbling and pickering between them...unreal.

  2. God woman.... you do like punishment but I bet your muscles "ripple".... don't you love that word? Jo, huh? I don't know who I identify with..... when I was younger, perhaps Beth, wasn't she the Barbie Doll one? I used to be kind of a Barbie but boy have I changed!!!! Now I'm more the slob-run-around-in-your-old-sweats gal.
    I'm hung up on reading books from the captives of the Colombian war lords. I've had "Out of Captivity" in my kindle for a year and just now getting around to reading it and now I can't put it down. I don't even change my posts much lately. Back to my book.
    Good Sunday to you ....

  3. ryoko861, only a little bit of tone because I was so inconsistent with the challenge. A couple of heat waves interrupted me and then a stiff shoulder. I'm not that silly. :-)

    Manzi, my body is more like rippling flab.The challenge now is to do continue to do 50 crunches every other day. Haven't since the 200...The barbie doll was Amy. Did you ever see the movie in which Liz Taylor played Amy? I thought that was great casting. She pranced like she was about to do flamingo.

  6. Ed, 200 crunches. Half-ass ones at that. But 200 in a row. Cheap thrills. :-)

    Paige, I've put it on my list to re-read. Last night I discovered several of Alcott's books at Project Gutenberg, which you can download for free. Now, if I can figure out how to do that.
