boxed set of the first four 'Anne of Green Gables' books, coming this October! Are you looking?? Are you SEEING how tremendously darling these are??
Here's a funny thing. I belong to an online book club on Facebook and what's really funny is that I never participate and I never read the books because I'm a flake. BUT this past month the pick was the very first 'Anne' book and I thought, ok I'm totally going to re-read 'Anne' because it's been awhile and I'm totally due for my 44th reading of one of my favorite books of all time.....
So I trundle on up to my upstairs bookcase (we have a entry hallway bookcase, a downstairs bookcase, and a upstairs loft area bookcase and another bookcase in our guest room) -- I was going to the guest room one if you're hankering to know -- and anyhoo, I mosey on up to fetch my well worn and much loved copy of 'Anne of Green Gables', the one I've had since I was 11.
NOT THERE. None of my Anne books are here in this house! I have no idea where they are! They're either in my dad's house in Hawaii, in which case they're probably moldy beyond all hope, or maybe they are at my mom's house in Seattle, but I don't think so, and basically.....
And aren't these just lovely? I am seriously enchanted with what's going on with these book covers!
'Cept I might have to also find another copy of the edition I was given when I was eleven. Because I just love that cover art.
But isn't this set just the Anne-est and the charming-est?? If you're needing a gift for someone this holiday season and know someone the right age to be introduced to the Anne books, I think this collection would just be amazing.
