March has been a busy month for my reading this year, glad to see if even if a lot of these books are smaller type books. This one is the Nellie Oleson actress Alison Arngrim's autobiography. A good read, lots of stuff I didn't really know. I remember watching Little House on the Prairie growing up, it was a regular show at our house. Of course this was back in the days of one TV and we had to agree on what to watch. I never read the books and really not a big fan but I remember enjoying it. Now my wife was a fan of the show and is still a fan of the show, she still watches it today. She read the Melissa Gilbert book and I saw this one & thought she might like it too but she never did read it, just wasn't interested. I thought it would be interesting and it was--lots of stuff about the show and Hollywood in the 1970s. Her parents were also interesting in some ways. I had now idea her older brother molested her and I didn't know she was an AIDS activist. Her husband on Little House who also became a very good friend of hers died of AIDS in the 1980s. A good interesting book. Also didn't know she is doing some standup comedy, I wouldn't have thought Nellie to be a comedienne. It is kind of hard to separate out the character from the actor.
I will be posting it on PBS, I think there are over 100 WL for it so it should get mailed off soon, probably next week. I already added a book late this week, can't remember the name but a vampire bat book by Martin Cruz Smith--needed a paperback to take along to a doctors appointment where I knew I would be sitting and waiting a while. Probably won't start another for that reason.
