This here website started ten years ago this month and to celebrate I’m giving away something each weekday. Because I like you.
Today I’m thrilled to be able to offer three lucky winners (that’s you! and you! and, yes, you!) a copy of The Wilder Life: My Adventures in the Lost World of Little House on the Prairie by Wendy McClure. Wendy’s site, Pound, was among the very first I started reading way back-in-the-day and I followed along as she investigated her love for Laura Ingalls Wilder. I somehow missed out on the whole Little House experience and I have to say I’m jealous. (Anne of Green Gables? Frodo? Susan and Lucy? All yes. Little House? I’m feeling like I have to catch up to the rest of you.)
If you have an affinity for Little House this book is for you. To win a copy please leave a comment with this entry, and if you’d like something to talk about answer this question: Have you ever worn a bonnet? I’ll go first: Yes! But not on purpose. I remember my aunt making me wear an acclaimedly homemade bonnet one the moment I visited Oklahoma. Shortly thereafter we went through a drive-through, which I think was Sonic. I feared they had cameras and could see my polite bonnet wearing shame. I knew the adults were getting away with something because my older and younger cousins were not required to wear bonnets. Luckily the pointing and laughing were kept to a minimum. Ok, embarrassing childhood snapshot time is over. You have until Tuesday, May 10th at 10 a.m. PST to enter, the fine print applies, good luck! Closed, thanks for entering!
