Anne-girlPosted: January 6, 2011
It’s been a while since I posted the last group of books I read. I’ve been a little, ahem, occupied at night lately. ;)
The Anne of Green Gables series has long been my favorite. (Hello, I’m naming my first daughter after Anne.) My first 3 are faded and worn– loved. I convinced Sarah she needed to read them if she was going to Prince Edward Island, home of Anne Shirley. Of course, she fell head-over-heels also. When she was reading them, I realized I had never read the last 3 of the series, so I borrowed hers and of course decided that I had to start at the beginning.
I fell in love all over again.
Yes, I cropped out the Chicken Soup books. I should get rid of them, but they are basically my middle school diary. I just can’t do it.
I can’t wait to read these books to MY Anne-girl.
Okay, and here is a resolution and a confession I am making. Not a New Year’s, just a resolution. And probably not really a confession, just a truth.
I lovelovelove to re-read books. (See: above.) To me, there’s nothing more comforting that curling up with a book you’ve read time and time again. You know it and it knows you. I also lovelovelove to borrow books. I currently have at least 5 beside my bed that have not even been opened that I am quite sure their owners would like to have back.
So, I am not re-reading a single book until I have read all of the borrowed books that I have. Because nothing bugs me more than when someone borrows a book and doesn’t return it. I am still holding a grudge against the girl on my hall freshman year that borrowed my Secret Life of Bees and never gave it back.
Further more, I will try to make a dent in some of the books I have bought and not read yet since I have recently returned from Goodwill with 5 more books. For $1.50 each OR LESS. I swear I will never pay full price for a book again. I get such a high from it.
