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.

I'm so glad you are enjoying it. After you finish you should watch the movie.

Are you kidding me right now?! You've never read or watched Anne of Green Gables?! That's just preposterous! I guess you are from Vegas so that explains alot.:) Has she met her bosom buddy yet or been in the depths of despair (That was one of my favorite sayings growing up)?? If only you lived closer.....you could borrow my whole set of movies. Glad you could be cultured a little bit!lol

Anne with an E!!! I LOVE those books, and am so happy that you are falling in love with them-Matthew is the best! And isn't Anne so hilarious-All the things she gets herself into!
I hope you've read Pride and Prejudice-otherwise that's another one you Must read!
