A Little House book

Alison Arngrim’s book (she played Nellie Oleson on Little House) Confessions of a Prairie Bitch: How I Survived Nellie Oleson and Learned to Love Being Hated is on sale for $2.99. I totally bought it, plus sent it to my mom’s Kindle. Little House on the Prairie (the books and the show) filled my childhood. Who else grew up with Laura and Nellie? Who was your favorite? (I’m Team Nellie and always have been.)

And Almanzo was my first true love.

    I don’t remember watching them much as a kid but my grandma watched them everyday along with the Waltons. I would get off of work and go right over to see her and she’d be watching one or the other. At night she would watch them again and then complain about seeing that episode four times that week haha
    :-) I tried to get her to try something else but she was set in her ways……like we all are hehe

    I really liked the show, even though there were times when I wanted to smack some cynicism into the characters.

    Self defense, really.

    Thanks Shannon! I loved watching Little House on the Prairie and I loved the books but I did not read them until I was in my early 20s.

    I’m reading it right now. It is so funny!

    I was already an adult when it was on, so only saw it from and adult POV, but grew up on the books. Laura was one of my wannabes, like Jo March and Beany Malone and Trixie Belden. (I’ve pretty much failed.)

    I loved the books and really loved the show! I have read Allison’s book, Melissa’s book and Melissa Sue’ s book! The best day of my life was when I met Dean Butler and got my picture taken with him!
