Win a Paperback Copy of Pioneer Girl by Bich Minh Nguyen

You've heard me talk about how much I loved this book. Now, you have a chance to win a free copy of the paperback version. Here is the official description:

In Pioneer Girl, Nguyen entwines the Asian American experience with the escapist pleasures of literature, in a dazzling mystery about the origins of Laura Ingalls Wilder’s classic Little House on the Prairie.

Lee Lien has long dodged her Vietnamese family’s rigid expectations by immersing herself in books. But now, jobless with a PhD in literature, she is back at home, working in her family’s restaurant under her mother’s hypercritical gaze—until an heirloom from their past sends Lee on a search for clues that may lead back to Wilder herself, transforming strangers’ lives as well as her own.

New Books in my Laura Ingalls Wilder Collection

There is a little competition going on in my bookshelf. Civil War fiction and non-fiction titles are vying for more room against my ever growing Laura Ingalls Wilder collection. Here are a few titles I have added lately.

I have skimmed this one, but not really gotten much into it yet. That's on my to-do list.

It is possible you can't be a true Laura fan unless you own this one. 

Just received this one from the Laura Ingalls Wilder Memorial Society this week.
