I've never read Anne of the Green Gables before. I have no idea why. If you reread it every year, it must be wonderful. I'll add it to my list.

Thanks for stopping by!

I'm planning on re-reading Anne of Green Gables sometime this summer with my daughter. I think she'll love it. Especially if I read it to her...

Anne is such a delightful book isn't it - I'm working my way through the series this summer and it feels like reminiscing with an old friend :)

Mrs S, thanks for stopping by.

I have the whole series in my keeper shelf. I love visiting her. We're kindred spirits. ;)
