"If I was just the one Anne it would be ever so much more comfortable, but then it wouldn't be half so interesting."

Hey, all you peeps who make fun of me because of my Twilight thang?

And I retort by insisting I am channeling my inner thirteen-year-old?

Well, now I am channeling my inner nine-year-old:
Penguin to Release Last Green Gables Book in its Entirety

I don't think I could be any more excited if Marilla made me a dress with puffed sleeves and decided to rename me Cordelia.

Ooooooh. Anne. Don't forget the blackberry cordial.

Oh my goodness I think I'll dye my [red] hair green! Thanks for the heads-up.

Love Anne. I can fondly remember being pregnant with my first and laying on the couch and watching the entire series through beginning to end.

Wow, it sounds dark.

I have stopped making fun of you for your Twilight obsession. I am resigned. Besides, there's way more to you than that and I adore you no matter what.

NOW, I will make fun of you for using the word "thang."

That is seriously exciting news. Those books were such an important part of my pre-teen and teen reading years.

Well pull my hair and call me Carrots! BB, you are indeed a bosom friend.

Here's something I didn't know we had in common... but might have guessed if I'd thought about it.

Eeeeee! I'm so excited!

You would probably be shocked to know I have not read Anne of Green Gables. I've often thought of giving it a try.

I want you to know though, that I am heavily involved in the Sookie Stackhouse books thanks to you. I resisted for a long time, I wasn't on the vampire bandwagon, but I've read other novels by Charlaine Harris and like her style.

You broke me with your enthusiasm so I gave in.

I can't WAIT for this new Anne book, darkness bedamned. I'm just terrified it will be difficult to get here in the US. What do you think?

Also, re: books for summer -- have you read Kristan Higgins? My new favorite for remarkably simple plots, very small problems, making for lovely big sweet books with just enough toothsome bite.
