I think the first book in the series, Anne of Green Gables, is my favorite. It's written in such a way that it makes you slow down and enjoy the deliciousness of each word. I love the style of writing and descriptions of the characters, their life and country surroundings. I can imagine riding in the horse drawn buggy through the "White Way of Delight". "a stretch of road four or five hundred yards long, completely arched over with huge, wide-spreading apple-trees, planted years ago by an eccentric old farmer. Overhead was one long canopy of snowy fragrant blooms. Below the boughs the air was full of purple twilight and far ahead a glimpse of painted sunset sky shone like a great rose window at the end of a cathedral aisle." text quoted from Anne of Green Gables - Three Volumes in One - written by Lucy Maud Montgomery - published by Avenel Books, New York.
I had plenty of interruptions while reading but made a point of enjoying every minute that I could of the lovely day. I'm pretty sure Mom enjoyed it too.
“Dear old world', she murmured, 'you are very lovely, and I am glad to be alive in you.” L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
