Happy weekend to you all!
I saw this Canadian classic making blogger rounds recently and thought, 'yes'! I won an extensive ebook collection years ago and felt it a perfect time to reread book 1.

Check out this read on Amazon.
Here is my snippet from approximately 56 pages in...

If you could travel back in time to purchase the first printing of a specific novel, what book would that be?

  3. Freda, are you aware that there is a very irritating Linky add thing that happens every time we click on someone's hyperlink from your page? We have to wait at least 5 seconds looking at an add or a blank screen before it redirects to the site we were trying to reach. It has been this way for the past month or so.

    1. I am aware, but unfortunately this is a Linky issue and I have no control over it. It is part o their new updates and it drives me nuts as well. I hope it doesn't deter you from your continued participation and visits.

  5. This is a real classic. They are translated into Swedish, and I remember them from when I was young. I don't know why I never read them. Maybe I should try now!

  10. I've been meaning to read the Anne of Green Gables series, as I do own all the books, but I've never gotten around to reading them yet. Maybe I'll have time in 2019.

How Reading Helps Your Brain

The brain is one of the most complex biological structures that scientists and doctors have ever encountered. It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions.
