Understood Betsy

Oh. My. God. I was looking online for a copy of a book I loved as a girl called Understood Betsy, about a meek little girl living with an elderly aunt who gets sent to Vermont during an influenza outbreak, to live with some hardy farmer-type relatives not that well-known or well-spoken of by her aunt. And while there, of course, Betsy learns a lot about the world and herself and becomes brave and strong. It is one of the most awesome books ever (it's about an orphan, so, like, duhhh). And instead of finding a copy for sale -- well, I found that too, but -- it's available for free online at Google Books!

So that's what I'm doing tonight while Rob is out drinking. Please don't bother me.
