The Lucy Maud Montgomery Reading Challenge

This challenge is hosted by Carrie over at Reading to Know. It is short, just the month of January, so it is imperative that I dive right in or I will miss out! I am eager to do just a little bit and be successful. I've downloaded Anne of Green Gables to my iPad and am already a fourth of the way through. I can't believe I have gone my whole life without reading such a classic but apparently it is true because I have no idea what is going to happen. The beginning had a vague sense of familiarity so I am wondering if I read a junior classic version when I was younger or if maybe the plot is a little similar to Pollyanna. After I finish the book, I am going to find the movie. In fact, I ought to start looking for it now so that I am ready! I am going to go with the movie version I saw Carrie recommended, she seemed to think this particular version was the quintessential Anne so that's what I want.

Yay! Correcting a reading problem here I see. ;D haha. I hope you thoroughly enjoy it to the end AND that you are able to locate a copy of the movie. I think you'll love it!

Glad you are playing along!

Another challenge! Sounds like you're tackling this one head on. Lucky you, reading Anne of Green Gables for the first time.
