Today is November 30 2015 and it's Lucy Maud Montgomery's 141st birthday. Click on the link to see this picture animated.
I discovered Anne of Green Gable just some years ago and have been collecting her works ever since. I didn't actually like Anne at first, what a talkative child! but I couldn't help reading on. I found that I didn't particularly like Anne but I loved the author's writing style, how she described surrounding scenes and Anne's feelings so vividly and so beautiful.
Right now I have most of her major works and already read Green Gable series twice. Her books will be always one I would pick up whenever I feel blue. Her language has an ability to cheer me up somehow :)
