What to Read for the 150th Anniversary of “Little Women”

I first read Little Women when I was a rising 4th grader, visiting my cousins in Cape Cod.  (It was just a coincidence that I was in Massachusetts when I first read the book, but it seems appropriate.) I loved the book.  I was combination of the sisters: the oldest like Meg, a wannabe writer like Jo, could play at the piano like Beth, and wanted to be an artist like Amy (but alas that art talent went to my sister, Helen.)  Since then I re-read the books every decade or so.  Now that I can read all of Louisa May Alcott’s books on Project Gutenberg I can read them whenever I want. Mirabile Dictu has done her usual fantastic job of putting this annotated bibliography of books about Louisa May Alcott.  I have also heard that Hollywood is making at 21st century version of the story.  Not sure if it will do honors to the original (probably not.)
