Anne with an e
I just started reading Anne of Green Gables today and I am loving it! I will be 28 years old in less than one week and I'm wondering how this story has evaded me for so long. I was searching for some good books a couple weeks ago and my girlfriend Jess had the series on her shelf. When I told her I hadn't read them it wasn't even a question for her- she just handed them to me. Now that I've started I'm sad they weren't the ones I picked up first! So silly to be this old and completely taken with these stories. By page 16 I already completely adored Mr. Cuthbert. He reminds me of my own sweet Grandpa Heaton in the quiet unobtrusive way he's Anne's co-conspirator and advocate. My classmates laughed at me as I giggled my way through all of Anne's woes and delights (yep, I read between classes, on our breaks, and at lunch). And just now Mr. Gilbert Blythe has joined the cast of characters and I am so excited to see where this all leads. Doesn't look as though I'll be getting much studying done tonight and I am completely ok with that.
