Blogtoberfest - Day 16

Anne of Green Gables....
Does anyone else love the story of oprhan Anne Shirely?
the book celebrated its 100 years of publication this past June!
last week my friend Helen gave me a cute travel brochure on 'Prince Edward Island' which she picked up whilst in Japan.
The island is where the author of the book Lucy Montgamery was born and where the story was set....we both found it so cool that the Japanese organise 'Anne of Green Gables' tours... I guess there are Anne fans everywhere!

  1. Yes. I grew up reading all the books and watching the movies. I was so obsessed that my Dad promised me a trip and we drove out their from WA state when I was 14. It's so pretty I want to go back. In fact, I just posted about it the other day. You should visit P.E.I. It's soo pretty!

  16. Montgomery's Anne books were my favorites growing up as well. I just adored Gilbert Blythe.

    The movies were so well done. I always wanted to have a daughter to share Anne with. Perhaps someday still. :-)

  17. Argh, my second boyfriend came from PEI.

    (On the authority of my Canadian-ness, I can confirm it's off the East coast of Canada)

    I wanted to be Anne when I was a teenager, after watching those tv series, but the boyfriend soon cleared that up. Best forgotten!

    (wild giggles)

  19. This story was my absolute favourite growing up -- I had the whole library, and must have re-read it many times. Like Chelsea, have also travelled to Prince Edward Island, and it's such a pretty, pretty place -- would definitely like to go back to those famous red sands.
