Welcome, Cetacea! Yes, I think I should read every single book about LHOTP and the actors on the show...my only problem is money...If I purchase every book I want to read, I think I'll be begging in the streets! batEyes

@Vanessa: I am a bookworm, therefore I save a lot of money to buy books. Which means I spend less money on other things.

Anyway I love books from the cast members, because they help me to understand how those actors felt playing a role in LHOTP.

Yes, that's right.

I haven't read Melissa Gilbert's currently published book, and don't have any inclination to, but I'll probably read Karen's when it comes out. I haven't decided about Melissa's yet-to-be-published book yet.


I'd definitely like to read Karen's book, and probably MG's new one. I have a feeling her writing stye will be much different with that one, considering it is more about her personal life on the show rather than her personal relationships? I don't know, I just am guessing that she will have a different overall 'tone' with this one. Hopefully though, hers is more informative than Melissa Sue's. I have no interest in having 'summaries/re-caps' of the episodes themselves....I like enlightenment of the behind the scenes---I have the shows themselves down to a science! Yikes Laughing

Yes, I agree Amy. I do feel Melissa will make this one more of the "Melissa" we hoped for. She does have those behind the scenes memories that she can share. I know if it were me writing it I too would go by the questions most asked by fans .
Karen's book should be just as great. I know she took her sad scenes very seriously and she always gave an awesome proformance. When are these books to be released, do we know??
Gotta save my egg money so I can get them.

Same here. The problem with me is that I'm not living in the States or Europa and books published there costs four times their real price to me. grinsmiley

I purchase a lot of books and much less other things -since I'm also a bookworm - but all of them are printed in Argentina. The bad thing is that our country is NOT translating or importing history or biography books from overseas since the 2000's or so... banghead

I thought the same thing about MSA's book, the overall style of the book (with the episode recaps and lack of thoughts on them/personal life) kind of put me off too. I didn't know MG was writing another...or, maybe I did and forgot Laughing I'm off to catch up on this and other things I missed (such as Karen's book - I would love to read that too!) Smile

I know I am impatient, but does anyone have any news about the books? Maybe there are people here, who are in contact with Karen or Melissa Gilbert.

It is kind of strange but a couple of weeks ago I saw in B&N an Book (including the ISBN number) from Melissa Gilbert and the release date was 28th of April. When I went looking again on the 28th the book wasn't there anymore.

I can't remember, but I think there is roughly 8-9 years between them. So I'm sure if she was around 16 when those scenes were taking place, the thought of having to kiss and be in love with somone someone who was 23 or 24 would have seemed daunting.

DEAN"S DOB 05/20/56
MELISSA'S DOB 05/08/64


There was a guy named Rob Hepler Lowe that I think she preferred over Dean.

I hadn't heard Karen mention a book in interviews, etc. I hope she still does. She always had a lot of class. Early in the show, I would read interviews where she wasn't always happy, her and Michael were different people, but they were professionals and besides a few comments about his antics and her lack of growth at times on the show, she never said a bad word, especially after he died. After that, she commented on the good things which was nice.

I liked the shows when he gave her more time, like the one where she cut her leg, became the school mom, helped the blind artist and her family.

Of all the 3 books, I liked Alison's the most, it was funny, informative and at times sad. She did a good job. Melissa Sue's seemed to be done for money like the rest, but also with reservatons, she is a private person and didn't want to say much. Melissa Gibert's was more like reading a National Star paper at times so I skimmed the hollywood parts.

I hope Ms. Grassle will right one...I would love to hear from the "Nels and Harriet" too. Smile

Has anyone heard anything more about this book? I know many fans thought she didn't have enough "Prairie" in the old one, having moved on, but many people bought it because they think of her as "Laura"

I found 2 pics from it:

The first one is Melissa Gibert's favorite. I don't know what happened with the book, the original release date was 4/12, but it's obviously past that time.

She was going to write one, tentatively titled "Prairie Memories" I suppose if the publisher thought there were enough fans for that, they would support it. I think she might have gotten some feedback with the old book that they wanted more about Little House and less her life afterwards. She admits on a post that she can't remember much of the younger years, how many of us can, but she had an email to send in questions about the show she would try to answer. If I didn't happen to see this older post though, I wouldn't have known anything about it.
Again, I don't know the final decision on this, but did get these pics from her Twitter.

Love that pic! I've never seen it either! Anyone know how long ago this was? And is that really 'Grace'? I'd love to know if that's her for sure...she guest starred on Home Improvement as Tim's mom and this doesn't really look like her, but that was a long time ago. Maybe it's the white hair that's throwing me off. After looking at it longer, I think it's Miss Beadle. Looks more like her face shape I think.

I sure would have liked to have been sitting at that table right behind them! batEyes

I will definitely be buying this one...I would love to hear more about her experiences specifically on the show.
