Anne Of Green Gables

Can you believe that I never liked the Anne Of Green Gables series?

I tried to read them when I was young and couldn't "get into them". Too much flowery speech and too small of print, probably.

Recently, I saw Anne Of Green Gables on my shelf and decided to give it another try.

And I am so glad I did!

The book took me over a week to read--reading a few pages each night--but held my attention from beginning to end. It was so enjoyable and the characters so relatable and loveable. And so quotable too!

And upon reading the last page, I immediately wanted to read the next book! That's the sign that I really enjoyed a book.

I need to check and make sure the library has Anne Of Avonlea...

It would be terrible if we just skipped 
from September to November, wouldn't it?"

I was introduced to Anne of Green Gables by the theatre production when I was 12 years old (many, many years ago). I've loved the character ever since

After reading it, get the Anne of Green Gables DVDs with Megan Follows and Colleen Dewhurst. They did such a good job with them. I'm sure your library has them or can get them.

I recently saw a commerical that a new Anne movie has been made. It will shown on PBS at 8pm on Thanksgiving. It is sometimes hard to watch a remake of a great movie but I plan to try it.
