    I have them all and read them every couple of years. It is one of my favorite series. I have been re-reading them for 20 years at this point!

    This is totally wrong. Unacceptable.

    I love LM Montgomery's works, especially the Akin to Anne short stories.

    Since I am in my 40s I have been reading them for 30 years. I have also purchased the complete set 3 times! I now have the set on my ereader - they are free as they are over 100 years old, as well as having a paperback set.

    Every year I read the following series: Anne, Harry Potter and the Little House books... plus a ton of other books. I tend to read 5-10 books/week which explains why I am on my second ereader

    HATE THIS!
    No the original movies I think did the books well, I have watched them many times.. In college roommates and I even did a marathon and stayed up all night and watched them straight through.. loved it... this is upsetting! She was a TOMBOY, climbed up on the roof, wouldn't let anyone touch her bag.. she was a tough product of the "foster" system!

    I never read those books. Maybe I will now.
    David Letterman is retiring. Such great memories of watching him over the past thirty-two years!
