You know how random questionnaires always ask “If you could spend the day with someone, dead or alive, who would it be?” I’m never exactly sure how to answer that question. Abraham Lincoln, C.S. Lewis, Jesus…the possabilies are endless. I just this minute realized who I would spend a day with. L.M. Montgomery, author of the Anne of Green Gables series and Avonlea series is my choice.
These books played a major role in my childhood. After my best friend in elementary school started swooning over a boy named Gilbert I began reading to find out what the fuss was about. It wasn’t long before I finished all the Anne books and started in on the Avonlea books. When those were finished I took myself to Waldon’s and purchased every book by L.M. Montgomery. My favorite was Rainbow Valley.
Anne Shirley was a serious role model and still has an influence over me. She is part of the reason why I give the 5th grade girls in our church a “big girls tea” every year. Someday I’ll make a pilgrimage to Prince Edward Island. I’m not sure there is much going on there, but PEI is to me as New Zealand is to LOTR movie geeks.
I just saw on Amazon that 11 of L.M. Montogomery’s books are available for the Kindle for only .99! I waisted no time in downloading my collection.
