I also grew up reading Little Women, which increased my love of the early version of the movie with Liz Taylor as well as the updated version with Winona Ryder.
Then, I got into the series books...and you'd be right if you guessed that I read every Babysitter's Club book I could get my hands on! I can't even count how many I went through in a week's time, and I was a regular at my local library so I could check out as many as I could. :o) Another favorite of mine were the Trixie Belden books. I didn't read as many of these because they seemed harder to come by, but I loved 'em just the same. And last, but not least, were some of Lurlene McDaniel's books (not pictured). When I was in junior high, I devoured these, and I think I shed some tears through every one....awesome, awesome books. :o)
