#AnneReadAlong2017

Anne of green Gables read along banner
I just came across this read along, and I thought well I might just do this. I listened to Anne of Green Gables (link to Goodreads short review) earlier in the year and enjoyed my revisit.   It also served as a book over 100 years for the Better World Reading challenge I find myself doing as well.

The book for June is Anne of Avonlea so I will be able to listen to that I think and see where I go from there.  As I started with the Barbara Caruso narration, I will continue with hers. There are quite a few narration versions! You can find the list of months and reads over at Jane and Jackie's blogs. Banner links to them.

I read some of the Anne books as a child, but not all of them, have watched the Canadian version TV series and a movie - not sure which version. I am also tempted to watch Anne with an E on Netflix. So I think this just might be the read along for me. 

At the moment I am also making an Anne of Green Gables fabric quilt for a young girl that I know, she may not know of Anne but it is the whole bookish thing I love.

My quilt in progress. I am not a pink person, but well I could be persuaded with this!!

  1. Yay! Welcome aboard Kathryn! We are so excited to have you join us! I will have to check out that audio book reader you mention. I'm always interested to find good readers of the classics :) Good luck with Anne of Avonlea this month--I really enjoyed it myself.

    Also, that quilt is a dream! Where did you find that fabric??

    1. Thanks Jane. I bought the fabric through the Missouri quilting co although I think it is around in a few quilting places. I love it.

  3. The Anne of Green Gables Series was- and still is- one of my all-time favourite series! Although I don't recall finishing more than 4 books, I know that I fell in love with the characters. In fact, I recently started watching Netflix's version of the book in their show "Anne With an E".

  6. I LOVE the Anne fabric in each square. I loved that series and the Canadian movies. I haven't watched yet the Netflix mini series.

  7. What a fun read-along. My daughter has just discovered Anne of Green Gables. I was thinking of getting an audio book version of the book for us to listen together.

  9. The quilt looks LOVELY! I picked up Anne of Green Gables while in Canada a few years back. Sorry I missed a read along. I'm not sure I remember this and I know I never read any of the others. Have fun with the read along.

  10. Yay! Welcome to the read along! I couldn't be excited to hear your thoughts and opinions. That quilt is *beautiful*! I love the scenes from Anne of Green Gables; where did you find them? So beautiful.

    I hope you enjoy reconnecting with Anne and her adventures. I can't wait to read your thoughts.

    1. It is a fabric line out in many stores in the US anyway. Seemingly they do fabrics like this every so often, due to the popularity of the story I guess.
