New Anne of Green Gables

September 29, 2014

Ok so I have a Very Big Excitement today, because there's a brand-new 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.....

I NEED A WHOLE NEW SET.

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.

  1. I couldn't find my childhood mass market pb of the first Anne book, either, although I did find the 2nd. I need this set. Thank you for the heads up!

    1. i can't find the original cover paperback that I had anywhere! which is ok. I think i just need a sparkly new set to make me happy. I did so love the ones with the different Anne's on the cover though, during her different phases of life.....

  2. Oh, this is lovely, I may need to buy it and "hold it" until my girls are a bit bigger. The weather is supposed to be crummy here this afternoon and I am thinking it might be time for an Anne movie marathon.

    1. I haven't seen the movie in ages, I really need to own it! I swear that Megan Follows might be one of the best casting decisions in movie history.....

  5. Ha! I have those old Anne books--the whole set! They are awfully worn...I still reread them regularly. If I'm feeling anxious, a good dose of Miss Cornelia in Anne's House of Dreams makes me laugh.

    1. I re-read them off and on for pretty much yearly for 20 yrs! It's just been in the past 5 yrs or so that I haven't re-read any of them. I'm WAY overdue.

  6. Oooooh! I see a Christmas purchase for Miss C. coming on! Thanks for the heads-up. I have been meaning to get my hands on a copy of each of these books, as Miss C. is now at a good age for them and it's been ages since I read them.

    1. Aren't these so cool? I'm going to buy a new set and then hide them. Like, for a couple more yrs. I read my set when I was 10.5 and therefore because I am the most creature of habit you've ever seen, that's when I'm going to spring them on J! I just bought a new copy of 'A Little Princess' -- my copy was old but I got it when I was 9. I'm going to give Julia hers on her 9th birthday! Hopefully you'll still be coming to see me next February, b/c I'm going to TOTALLY have a blog post about it. :)
