I don’t remember learning how to read, so I don’t know what my first favorite books were. Then I remembered the first series that I got into. The first series where I begged (or rather harassed) my parents to buy me all the books (they did.) The first series where I would hide out in my room, curled up in my bed and read for hours and hours. Anne of Green Gables.
I’ve written here on LitStack about my love of the series before, specifically Anne Shirley. She was a reader like me, had a wild imagination like me, prone to making a fool of herself like me, and eventually became a teacher (like me!) and a writer (still working on that one). OMG, I’m Anne Shirley.
