FYI... iTunes has a free Podcast of the audiobook "Anne of Green Gables". Yes, I said FREE! You don't need an iPod to listen. Just a computer.

Just returned from Prince Edward Island. It's the 100th anniversary of Anne, and the island is abuzz with related items...dolls, key rings, tote bags, etc. So, what else could a respectable tourist do? We got into it! Even attended the Anne Musical in Charlottetown...great cast, and even met the writer of the musical sitting in the lobby signing autographs! Read the book and be a kid again this summer!


This is your sister speaking: Read the books!! You will love them, I promise, and you'll still be able to hang on to your own identity.


AOGG is one of those books that transports you to the time and place. I loved it and re-read it many times. I'm 51 now, and if I am ever in a house with a small upstairs bedroom with low windows and curtains blowing in the fresh breeze...and a gabled ceiling, of course!...I can't help but think of Anne.


I have never read this book! I am going to pick it up today.


I love Anne of Green Gables. I'm going to be re-reading it for the Classics Challenge and I can't wait. I recently finished Before Green Gables and loved it. The stories of Anne are just so endearing.

OK! I found a copy on the kids' bookshelf last night and started it.


I don't like to pick a book and say it is my "favorite", but Anne is probably somewhere at the top. I am really looking forward to the discussion! (and I am jealous of those of you who got to go to PEI)

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
