Anne of Green Gables

For all of you Anne of Green Gables fans, a few things to take a gander at this week:

Of course, the prequel to Anne of Green Gables has been released. Before Green Gables by Budge Wilson comes at the time of the 100th anniversary celebration of Anne of Green Gables.

Read Elizabeth Ward's review of the book over at The Washington Post. Thanks to Big A Little a for the link.

Also, I just finished listening to Just One More Book's podcast about the release of this book. This is huge! Mark and Andrea have the author, the editor, and L.M. Mongtomery's granddaughter (and more) giving their two cents about the release of the new prequel as well as memories of the original.

I have ordered this book, but it hasn't come in yet. I can't wait to read it. I'll be reporting about it right here as soon as I can get my grimy little hands on it. It's getting really good reviews. I must confess, I was a little hesitant before. I just can't imagine L.M. Montgomery not writing it. But I vow to give it a try after all of the good reviews.
