‘If it’s IN you to climb you must — there are those who MUST lift their eyes to the hills — they can’t breathe properly in the valleys.’
Once the prescient sense of doom from not completing my Middlemarch part in time (which hovered always – because I was always behind…) lifted, I swore I was going to take a break before embarking on another READING THING.
No, I was just going to enjoy reading – no pressure, no timelines, reading whatever the dang hell I pleased whenever I felt like it. So there.
Which completely worked.
For about a week.
(Un)fortunately I seem to be one of those people that need some form of structure, be it large or small, in which to be comfortable…? Well, whatever the nureosies – it has brought us to here:
I am intending to visit Prince Edward Island next year, and given that my blog title is derived from my favourite of ALL Montgomery books, I thought a re-hash of the Amazing Ms Montgomery would be worthwhile. The last time I read them I was an angsty misunderstood teen…
So, each month-ish I will be reading a Montgomery and posting about it.
Did you know there are 70 distinct titles written by Montgomery????
I will, though, give it a good ole English try.
First Up: Emily of New Moon.
This is the cover of my copy…sigh.
(Which incidentally is free on Project Gutenberg )
I thought I would start with my favourites and spread out from there. First post at the end of this month.
If you would like to join in – PLEASE do! And feel free to let me know, so I don’t feel alone and sad, with only the company of cats… But no pressure.
We shall see how it all goes.
à bientôt kittens!
Valancy: thinking of moons, new or not…and cats thin and fat. 🙂
