Thanks to Tynga and her team for hosting Stacking the Shelves every week!
Went shopping at Good Will this week. I wanted to go to my favorite little used bookstore that I don't get to go to often, but when I pulled up it was gone. :-( I was so sad. I'd gone in search of the rest of the Anne of Green Gables series. So I went to Good Will in the hopes of finding SOMEthing and lo and behold... I found Anne of the Island AND Anne of Ingleside. Granted I went to two different stores to find those, but how lucky is that???
New adventures lie ahead as Anne Shirley packs her bags, waves good-bye to childhood, and heads for Redmond College. With old friend Prissy Grant waiting in the bustling city of Kingsport and frivolous new pal Philippa Gordon at her side, Anne tucks her memories of rural Avonlea away and discovers life on her own terms, filled with surprises...including a marriage proposal from the worst fellow imaginable, the sale of her very first story, and a tragedy that teaches her a painful lesson. But tears turn to laughter when Anne and her friends move into an old cottage and an ornery black cat steals her heart. Little does Anne know that handsome Gilbert Blythe wants to win her heart, too. Suddenly Anne must decide if she's ready for love...
Anne is the mother of five, with never a dull moment in her lively home. And now with a new baby on the way and insufferable Aunt May Maria visiting-and wearing out her welcome-Anne's life is full to busting. Still, Mrs. Doctor can't think of any place she'd rather be than her own beloved Ingleside. Until the day she begins to worry that her adored Gilbert doesn't lover her anymore. How could that be? She may be a little older, but she's still the same irrepressible, irreplaceable redhead-the wonderful Anne of Green Gables, all grown up...She's ready to make her cherished husband fall in love with her again.What did you all get this week?
