This month, I focused my reading on a set of books that I had never read. I loved watching the Anne of Green Gables movies when I was growing up. I tried to read the books when I was about 12, and I couldn’t get into them. My sister and mom always loved them, and they were always suggesting I try reading them again when we talked about reading or the ol’ “Anne-girl.”
So, I picked them up this month at the library. Wow. They are so good. I have really enjoyed reading them, and I highly recommend them. So far, I’ve read:
Anne of Green Gables
Anne of Avonlea
Anne of the Island
Anne of Windy Poplars
Anne’s House of Dreams
Anne of Ingleside
I’ve requested Rilla of Ingleside, Chronicles of Avonlea, and Further Chronicles of Avonlea, as well as all the Emily trilogy books by Lucy M. Montgomery (who wrote all the Anne books) from the library. I’m eager to read them, but they aren’t the only things I’ve got checked out.
Tom and I are planning to landscape our yard (the best we can, by ourselves) so I’ve been checking out some handy-dandy little gardening books from the library and dreaming of how our yard could look in a year or two (or three) after we’ve put the time and money into our yard that it will require to match the plans I drew out into a notebook I keep for ideas, thoughts, and plans. It’s a very professional drawing. I used markers. (Since you can’t hear me saying this, I’ll just add that that was self-deprecating humor, folks.)
I also am reading Unveiled by Francine Rivers. This book focuses on Tamar of the Old Testament. I’ve also read her books on Ruth, Bathsheba, and Mary. She has one on Rahab that I would like to read as well. Francine Rivers is a great author.
That’s all I’ve got for March.
