Anonymous:
I read my mom's old copy of the book when I was a little girl and later watched the movie. But my book has a different ending than the movie. I'm so confused. Did the original book end earlier (before Beth died and Jo said no to Laurie) ?

Little Women was originally published as two books: Little Women and Good Wives. In some places it is still published this way, but in most modern US copies of the book they combine the two, usually labelling them parts one and two. Little Women, the first book ends just after John Brooke proposes to Meg. Good Wives picks up a few years later presumably when he has earned himself enough to support Meg as promised.

Currently reading (and loving). ‘Little Women’ is a childhood favorite and so perfect for Christmas with its warmth and loveliness.

I’ve watched this film probably 30 times in the last two months, this scene always gets me. It’s the exact same feeling I struggle myself with everyday…will I ever find my place? Will I ever “fit in”?

"She did not think herself a genius by any means; but when the writing fit came on, she gave herself up to it with entire abandon, and led a blissful life, unconscious of want, care, or bad weather, while she sat safe and happy in an imaginary world, full of friends almost as real and dear to her as any in the flesh."

Little Women, Louisa May Alcott

Day Four: Life Changing
Little Women became my favourite novel when I read it for the first time when I was eight years old, and has remained my favourite throughout the next twelve years of my life. Jo March was the first literary character I even connected with, and that has stayed with me. I celebrated with her, I grieved with her, I dreamed of a great life of traveling and reading and writing with her. 
I have multiple copies of the novel, but this one, the copy I bought at the store inside the New York Public Library is my favourite. It is a stunning book, leather bound with beautiful quotes on the cover and back.
