Re-reading Anne of Green Gables: Dust off your Copies!

I am loving re-reading LM Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables books right now, and keen to share the joy.

I’m working on a series of posts to accompany the experience of re-reading the books as an adult, so if you’re inspired, dust off your copies or find some in the library and join us! They have aged very well.

The lovely Anna Leese (one of New Zealand’s greatest sopranos) is doubling as Anne for the series images – how gorgeous is this?

Let’s kick things off today with a general chat about Anne – did you read her as a child? Have you re-read the books since? Any favourites?

Update: The first ‘proper’ post is now up.

If you want to be notified when new posts go up (especially Anne ones!) just click the Follow button at the top of the sidebar.

You can also keep up with Sacraparental on Facebook for daily snippets, on Twitter for occasional ranting and linking and Pinterest for internet magpieing (including lots of Anne stuff on my Book Book Book board).

Do you want to use one of these shiny sharing buttons?

    Adored the books as a youngster and would love to reread them all, just not sure how to find the time right now 🙁

      Fair enough, Daina! I do find they are a fast read, if that helps… And in nice clear chapters so you can satisfyingly read small snippets if that’s all the time you have.

      But I bet you can join in the conversation based on your childhood reading anyway 🙂

    Turns out that having children may have spoilt Anne for me. Oh my goodness she goes on! Anne, that is, not LMM. Maybe it’s just my 5 year old ringing in my ears.

      I always used to skip or skim the scenery descriptions but found them more interesting this time round.

      How far through are you on the latest re-read?

        I used to love the long prose. Now it makes my ears hurt. Seriously!

        Just started yesterday. 40% through, according to Kindle. Of course I have all the books, but they were in with sleeping child at the opportune moment so I added it on Kindle. Thinking I might have to watch the TV series again 😉
