Anne of Green Gables

Want to know what is making me really happy? Introducing the book, Anne of Green Gables, to one of the Garden Club girls. You see, although she is 12 and I am not, we often recommend books to each other. In our chat this week, I realized that she had not read the book or seen the spectacular Anne of Green Gables video series starring Megan Fellows (which, yes, I have on VHS). So we made a plan: she'll read the book and then we'll have a family movie night at my house and watch it all together. What fun.

How do I know it will happen? Her mother told me yesterday that her daughter walked up to her in the library, held up Anne of Green Gables and said, "I've got to read this." So it is going on vacation with them and life is good. What are you reading?

How wonderful for your young friend, Anne. I adored that book when I was about her age.

The photo is stunning - what a beautiful place.

I just love Anne of Green Gables too, both the books and the TV series.
Yeah the love of books has no age, and I think it's wonderful that you share your knowledge with a 12 year old girl. That will mean something to her for the rest of her life.

I love books, and I read all the time and everywhere.
At the moment I'm reading a Danish author. I bought his whole work on the book sales recently and I'm now enjoying reading them.
