This week I started a new book. I needed something more entertaining after Trask's Language. Pip is hosting a book club, and their new book is Anne of Green Gables. I have seen the TV series a couple of times, and read the books when I was young and when I wasn't any more. This book is from my mother's bookshelf:
She apparently had it for her name day present when she was eight years old, a great age to get a book about an 11-year-old girl. Have you read L.M. Montgomery's books about Anne Shirley's life on Prince Edward Island? It is enjoyable reading for girls of any age.
I'm reading this in Finnish and enjoying the old-fashioned translation. They even "translated" her name: Ann was Anni and Anne with an e became Anna. The paper is yellowed, and the book has the lovely smell of an old book.
Suzanne is hosting Vintage Thingie Thursday. She has a long and lovely list of links to other vintage thingies. Thank you for coming by!
