Laura Ingalls Wilder Ultimate Book List!

As one slowly descends into a fandom you begin to build up a collection surrounding that interest. In my case, it’s books. Tracking down every book that pertains to Laura, the series, the chapter books, the cookbooks, the nonfiction…you get the point. Some are for my own research and some are just novelty collectable pieces. But what can be difficult for friends and family is identifying what books you have and what you need when it comes to the holidays/birthdays. Or in a certain case… what series one talked about after three bottles of wine and now she  absolutely has to read (hello Jill!)  It’s in her honor that I began to pull this list together.

So time to unveil the ultimate book list!  Comment if I miss anything, I’ll add it in and tweet any addendums.  Happy reading!
