To say that I was an avid reader as a child would be an understatement. I spent a lot of time in the library and often read as many as 5 books a week, but somehow I never read Anne of Green Gables. Why? I have no idea and I don't ever remember seeing it on the shelves. Now how do I explain never seeing the PBS Movie?. Hmmm..maybe because I had just moved from Vermont to Massachusetts with a hyperactive four year old and an infant or maybe because the only PBS we watched back then had a big yellow bird or A man in a cardigan (whom I loved dearly, I might add). For whatever reason, today was the first time that I ever watched
this movie and I am embarrassed to admit it. I just loved it and cried during the last episode. Poor Matthew and what will Marilla do? More importantly, did she ever use the entire 20 pounds of brown sugar? Just thought you should know of my lack of Anne-ness.
