For years I‘ve been wanting to get the Anne books in hard cover. I‘ve decided that I really like these editions. These are the first two I‘ve been able to get, so I‘ll be on the hunt for the rest soon. ❤️

GypsyKat @BarkingMadRun @JacqMac @xicanti @ravenlee @ladym30 @mom2bugnbee @writerlibrarian @chaoticgoodhufflepuff They are beautiful! But I should have done more research. I guess the reason they‘re hard to find is that they didn‘t publish all 8 books. I guess I‘m still on the lookout for a hardcover set. I like the Tundra Books set, but I‘m having a really tough time finding where to get all of them. I feel like it would be easier if I were in Canada. 4mo
ravenlee That‘s so frustrating! Grrr. 4mo

"We must name this place before we leave it," said Anne, yielding to the indisputable logic of facts. "Everybody suggest a name and we'll draw lots. Diana?"

"Birch Pool," suggested Diana promptly.

"Crystal Lake," said Jane.

Anne, standing behind them, implored Priscilla with her eyes not to perpetrate another such name and Priscilla rose to the occasion with "Glimmer-glass." Anne's selection was "The Fairies' Mirror.”

#Crystal #QuotsyJune19

TK-421 The names were written on strips of birch bark with a pencil Schoolma'am Jane produced from her pocket, and placed in Anne's hat. Then Priscilla shut her eyes and drew one. "Crystal Lake," read Jane triumphantly. Crystal Lake it was, and if Anne thought that chance had played the pool a shabby trick she did not say so. 7mo

"Some are born old maids, some achieve old maidenhood, and some have old maidenhood thrust upon them," parodied Miss Lavendar whimsically.

"I always like to do things as well as possible," said Miss Lavendar meditatively, "and since an old maid I had to be I was determined to be a very nice one. People say I'm odd; but it's just because I follow my own way of being an old maid and refuse to copy the traditional pattern.” #spinster #QuotsyJune19

“Then, almost as suddenly as it began, the storm ceased. The hail stopped, the thunder rolled and muttered away to the eastward, and the sun #burst out merry and radiant over a world so changed that it seemed an absurd thing to think that a scant three quarters of an hour could have effected such a transformation.” #QuotsyMay19

Marilla listened to the whole story, and if she smiled at certain parts of it Anne never knew. When the tale was ended she said briskly,

"Well, never mind. This day's done and there's a new one coming tomorrow, with no mistakes in it yet, as you used to say yourself. Just come downstairs and have your supper. You'll see if a good cup of tea and those plum puffs I made today won't hearten you up."

I know I've just barely started but I'm feeling a little let down by this listen. First, the narrator- while very good!- does not please me like Rachel McAdams did in the first book. Next, there are a dozen new characters I don't care about it. I'm sure that after a couple more commutes I'll be fully immersed but at the moment I'm wondering if I should have treated the first one as a wonderful stand-alone and moved on. 🤔

“Marilla," said Anne solemnly, but with dancing eyes, "do I look as if I were crazy?"

"Not more so than usual," said Marilla, with no thought of being sarcastic.”

“We'll all four start off to the woods and spend a golden day making the acquaintance of the spring...We'll make friends with wind and sky and sun, and bring home the spring in our hearts."

"It SOUNDS awfully nice," said Diana, with some inward distrust of Anne's magic of words. "But won't it be very damp in some places yet?"

"Oh, we'll wear rubbers," was Anne's concession to practicalities.

I always wanted a #friend like Anne! #QuotsyFeb19

Second in the green gables series and it's just as good as the first. Anne is now in her teenage years. We have 2 new residents at Green Gables, Dora and Davy, Anne has joined the workforce and there's a ton is scandal in Avonlea. I really am loving the authors sense of humour when creating her characters. This book really builds on Anne's foundations and I'm looking forward to seeing how she handles her early twenties in the next in the series.

This is my daughter's best friend and my second daughter. She practically lives at my house. She came over to hang out and ended up reading the second Anne book. I gifted the first one to for her birthday this summer.
My biological daughter refuses to even try to read Anne...so this one is currently my favorite kid.

“After all,” Anne had said to Marilla once, "I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string.”

Vegetarian lunch with some Anne of Avonlea on the side. I am using Serial app to read classics and I Find very pleasant to read a few pages everyday. I am catching up with some old chapters I haven‘t read.

BookBabe Omg, lunch details please! That looks soooo delicious! 😍 1y
sofiaga @BookBabe this is a Costa Rican typical lunch. We call it Casado. It always has fresh white rice and fresh cooked beans, some green salad, in this case cabbage, a picadillo (tiny cut, cooked an seasoned veggies), fried plantains and some protein. In my case, they have me ayote (a type of pumpkin soup) and boiled egg cooked with beans. The best part is that it cost about $5 (edited) 1y

“It was a full hour before quiet was restored . . . but it was a quiet that might be felt....Nobody...dared whisper a word. Ned Clay accidentally squeaked his pencil while working a sum, caught Anne's eye and wished the floor would open and swallow him up. The geography class were whisked through a continent with a speed that made them dizzy. The grammar class were parsed and analyzed within an inch of their lives." #Class #QuotsySept18

Gilbert wisely said nothing more; but in his silence he read the history for the next four years in the light of Anne's remembered blush. Four years of earnest, happy work...and then the guerdon of useful knowledge gained and a sweet heart won.

I'm enjoying my read of Anne of Avonlea. I still like Anne of Green Gables more, but it's nice to return to a familiar place. As usual, L.M. Montgomery's depictions of Prince Edward Island are gorgeous! I do hope I can visit one day.

If you're in the mood for more classics, Audible has some sweet deals. I listened to this heartwarming sequel featuring many of the beloved characters from Anne of Green Gables for only $2! Good thing because this 1909 first edition pictured here sold for $17,500. 😁💸
I just downloaded Book 3: Anne of the Island and H.G. Wells' The Time Machine for $2.09 each, plus Jane Austen's Persuasion for only 69 cents!

There is something sweet and romantic in Montgomery‘s language. This book is as much about Anne Shirley growing up as it is a love story about PEI. I also quite like the Tundra covers.

“Perhaps, after all, romance did not come into one's life with pomp and blare...perhaps it crept to one's side like an old friend through quiet ways; perhaps it revealed itself in seeming prose, until some sudden shaft of illumination flung athwart its pages betrayed the #rhythm and the music, perhaps . . . perhaps . . . love unfolded naturally out of a beautiful friendship, as a golden-hearted rose slipping from its green sheath.” #QuotsyMay18

Mehso-so

The Anne series is one of my nostalgic favorites, & Anne of Green Gables held up to my childhood memories upon reread. This one did not. The miniseries is perfect. I will stick with that for my Avonlea memories. I had forgotten the Davy & Dora thing, the messed up way that both Marilla & Anne favored Davy, the low-key racism underlying parts of the book, particularly in some of Marilla‘s comments, & that my favorite guy Gil is barely in this one.

Krisjericho I‘m hoping Anne of the Island will restore the somewhat dulled shine of my affection for the series. 2y
DivaDiane I quite liked it, but it wasn‘t quite as stellar as the first. I have to admit that I read it for the first time a few months ago, so I don‘t have any expectations. You‘re right, though, that their treatment of the twins is pretty bizarre. 2y
ReadingSusan Yeah this is definitely my least favorite of the series. It is so terrible that poor Dora isn‘t liked because she is TOO good. That‘s not how it‘s supposed to work. 2y
ReadingSusan @Krisjericho Anne of the Island is one of my favorites! 2y

There is something about Anne and spring ❤️ “That is one good thing about this world… There are always sure to be more springs.” I never really had a go to for “comfort reads” and LM Montgomery has now absolutely filled that void.💗 Do you have a go to comfort read?

“Behind them in the garden the little stone house brooded among the shadows. It was lonely but not forsaken. It had not yet done with dreams and #laughter and the joy of life; there were to be future summers for the little stone house; meanwhile, it could wait. And over the river in purple durance the echoes bided their time.” #QuotsyCatchup #QuotsyApril18

"No-o-o, you never do. But you get sorry, and that's worse. You'll be awful sorry when I tell you this, Anne—and you'll be 'shamed of me, I s'pose.”

Couldn't pick just one today, so here's a few from Anne of Avonlea & Anne of the Island. Gotta love #kidlogic. #Sorry #QuotsyApril18
