Eleven Classics in 2011: January Check-in

One month in 2011 is coming to a close and as promised, I’m checking in with the progress of my little self-imposed reading challenge. This month I was also participating in the L.M. Montgomery Reading Challenge which Carrie @ Reading To Know hosts annually every January.

Final Thoughts: Anne of Green Gables: The Sequel (1987 miniseries)

I just wanted to wrap up my thoughts on Anne of Green Gables: The Sequel, the 1987 mini-series which I began and reviewed yesterday and finished watching today. I have to say, having finished the movie, I did enjoy it a lot. Though I wasn’t terribly happy with the scenes and characters left out, the important part, you know, the Anne and Gilbert of it … Continue reading Final Thoughts: Anne of Green Gables: The Sequel (1987 miniseries)

not very wordless, definitely a wednesday.

One of the negative side effects of winter days is the inevitable time spent stuck inside. Too cold to trek outdoors, too tired to fuss with the bundling process involved in going out, or sick.

Little BB continues to pursue a modeling career each day, looking absolutely adorable on a constant basis … Continue reading not very wordless, definitely a wednesday.

I Read: Anne of the Island by L.M. Montgomery

Last week I finished reading Anne of Avonlea and was just about to start watching the corresponding film when Jean, a good bloggy friend of mine, warned me that the film combines books two and three. So even though I had just begun to read another book, I quickly set said book aside and returned to my Kindle and the world of Avonlea in Montgomery’s … Continue reading I Read: Anne of the Island by L.M.
