The Complete Anne of Green Gables Boxed Set - L.M. Montgomery Little Women - Louisa May Alcott Jane Austen: Seven Novels - Jane Austen

Day 2: A book that you're read more than 3 times...


I simply can't choose only one. I don't read many books more than once but when I do find a book that I can read that often, it is an over and over and over again type of thing.


Anne of Green Gables series-I love this series. I usually read it around the end of winter every year. I must have read this whole series at least 16 times. I have worn out so many copies of Anne of Green Gables that I have a mini-Anne graveyard of broken spine books in my closet. I can't throw them away. I do always skip Matthew's death scene because I just can't. I read it once and I will never read that particular part again.


Little Women-I remember the day I got Little Women. My mother bought it for me. It was one of my first "grown up" books when I was about 6 or 7. I loved it from page 1 and identified with Jo in a way that I didn't understand until I was much older. It's another one I read yearly. Around Christmas--it just seems like a Christmas book. I am on my 10th go around with the whole series.


Jane Austen's books-When I was in 6th grade, my teacher pulled me aside and asked me if I was really reading the books I was bringing in or was I pretending. I think I had taken a Dickens book with me to school because it was a testing day and I read during breaks. I told her that no I was not faking it and yes, I was really reading. She handed me Pride and Prejudice and told me to read it over the weekend. Questioning a child who shows an interest in reading is never a good idea--and my mother gave her the whatfor--but I will always feel kind of grateful to her for pointing me in Jane Austen's direction. I read through her books ever summer and each time I find something new that makes me fall in love with Jane all over again.  I'm on the 8th read through.
