Anne of Green Gables Readalong

Book blogger confession time. I have never read Anne of Green Gables. *gasp* I know. I should be kicked out of the club, right? I think I missed a right of passage or something. I have seen the movies, though.

When I was in junior high, at a time when I hated to read, my parents bought me the entire paperback set to try to get me to read. Sadly, it didn’t work. Those lovely books just sat on my bookshelf collecting dust. Okay, I do admit that I tried to read the first book after I watched the movie, but I don’t think I even made it to the end of the first chapter.

I received the Barnes & Noble edition of Anne of Green Gables for Christmas and it would be a shame to let it go unread. I’m thinking about hosting a readalong. Would anyone be interested in reading Anne of Green Gables with me? Would anyone like to co-host the readalong with me? I think March or April would be a good month to read this classic. How about you?

    I was just commenting to someone yesterday that I really want to reread this one. I loved it as a girl. (I, too, picked it up after having watched the movie.) All I remember about it, though, was loving it. I would love to join in.

    Wahoo! I guess if you read it you can stay in the club…wait. I’ve only read two books in this series. Does that mean I don’t get to be in the club? I’d join you for a rewatch of the movie because I love it so much…better than the book even.

    I remember collecting this series from the second hand bookstore when I was about 10? I read all the books that summer. But, I live a province away from where they are set, so I guess I felt like I should. lol I hope you enjoy finally checking out! Some people like Emily more than Anne, so don’t count Montgomery out entirely if you don’t like it in the end. 🙂

      YAY!!! We talked about it at book club last night and Suey, Kathy, Brittany, and Jessica A are going to join in for sure. I’m still trying to talk Jenny into rereading it with us just for the fun of doing the readalong. Is March okay with you?

    I am SO in for participating! I don’t know that I could help co-host, unfortunately. Life will be getting crazier around March/April for me this year. But if I can put in a request? March would be my preferred month if that’s workable. Simply because at the middle to end of April, I’ll be making a fairly big trip and my time for blogging will be non-existent I’m sure. However, I could join back in hopefully sometime in May, so it’s not a “do it in March or I won’t participate” type of thing, no worries there! I shall look forward to it whenever it happens!! YAY! 😀
