Nostalgic library.

Amanda reminded me of Rilla of Ingleside and Rainbow Valley, and thereupon of course I developed an intense craving to reread all of L.M. Montgomery. The Story Girl. The Blue Castle. Jane of Lantern Hill. Emily of New Moon. Pat of Silver Bush. How I loved those books and their painterly covers!

Did you read the adventures of Anne Shirley, Emily Starr, and all their compatriots when you were a tween/teen?

I just reread the whole Anne series (and got made fun of by coworkers). I love L.M. Montgomery.

I didn't read Anne of Green Gables till like last year, but I loved it just as much as I would have at age eight. When I saw the news about the Utah grasshopper attack today, I immediately thought of Laura Ingalls Wilder and On the Banks of Plum Creek. I LOVE children's/YA books a ridiculously large amount.
