Can you believe I've never read Anne of Green Gables? As much as I read growing up, I can't believe that no one recommended this book so that I inhaled it as I did so many others over the years.
A few months ago, I read Much Ado About Anne (reviewed HERE), the delightful second book in the Mother-Daughter Bookclub series, in which the young teens and their moms read Anne of Green Gables, so that sort of whet my appetite for the story.
Carrie, my most prolific contributor at 5 Minutes for Books, is sponsoring the Lucy Maud Montgomery challenge at her blog Reading to Know this month, so I'm going to join in and try to read it. I'd love for Amanda to read it with me (or for us to do it as a read aloud), but she tried to read the Great Illustrated Classics version a year or two ago and declared it "boring." Amanda is an adventure/fantasy/mystery lover, and doesn't like my beloved Laura Ingalls Wilder either, so we'll see.
