β€œβ€˜Look, do you see that poem?’ she said suddenly, pointing.” - L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Avonlea.
πŸ‚
What a poem of a month it’s been here in Vancouver, and I hope it has been where you live too. 😊 Despite all the Very Important Binging I did over the weekend with the Joan Didion doc and Stranger Things, I still managed to get outside and see people, great success! πŸ™ŒπŸΌ
πŸ‚
What are you (or your kids/pets) dressing up as tomorrow? In the past I’ve dressed up as a boy (fifth grade πŸ˜‚), a hobo, Amy Winehouse and Black Swan. This year I’m not doing anything but if I were I’d prob go as Ares from Wonder Woman (because I’m still laughing at that casting πŸ™ˆπŸ€£).
πŸ‚
Have a bright week, everyone! PS. I’m still working on the poems, so for those waiting on one, they’re coming! πŸ“¬πŸ’ŒπŸ˜Š

Oversized sweaters, golden leaves and this classic is what I look forward to at this time of the year. β€œI'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”

I know I already mentioned this quote at the beginning of the month but with the sun shining and the leaves so vibrant, I just couldn’t help myself. I do hope you understand that I did it in the name of #Annetober. *

This quote was the first line I copied into my new NOVEL JOURNAL from @CanterburyClassics. Have you seen these new journals? They have so many classics in their collection. The blue one pictured here on the left is the Anne of Green Gables edition along side the Word Cloud book which they also publish. The coolest thing about these journals is that the lines within are made up from the complete text of the literary work. How amazing is that?! Once you fill your journal you can actually read between the lines of your favourite novel πŸ˜‰. For closeups on the details of these novel journals, have a look at @canterburyclassics. Since it is #Annetober is there anyone else planning on reading/rereading this beloved book?

Enjoying my Anne of Green Gables chocolate truffles and raspberry cordial while admiring my books. If you are a fan of AOGG and you find yourself in Whistler, B.C., may I suggest that you stop in at this chocolate shop for some delicious souvenirs. πŸ‘’πŸ«

It's hard to choose but this edition of Anne is probably my favorite. #annetober #anneofgreengables #bookstagram #octoberwithanne

I've had a dream-house in PEI ever since reading the Anne books as a child because Avonlea made me love it with absolute certainty. Come visit - I'll have cake, raspberry cordial, town gossip & tea ready!

Some of my fave quotes from this book:
β€’ "I've come home in love with loneliness."
β€’ "But oughtn't we to be prepared for the best too? It's just as likely to happen as the worst."
β€’ "Perhaps, after all, romance did not come into one's life with pomp and blare, like a gay knight riding down; perhaps it crept to one's side like an old friend through quiet ways; perhaps it revealed itself in seeming prose, until some sudden shaft of illumination flung athwart its pages betrayed the rhythm and the music; [perhaps] love unfolded naturally out of a beautiful friendship, as a golden-hearted rose slipping from its green sheath."
πŸ‚
These Elly Mackay cover illustrations have me falling in love with these old friends all over again! 😍

Have you read a book/seen a movie that made you love its location and build a dream-house there? 🏑

My turn in the
#batcave after a few hours at #malloween our local #halloweenparty which raises funds for cancer research in memory of one of our very popular local characters Mally Powell, sheep farmer by day and cross-dressing, gothic rock star by night. I really liked the bat fleece I had on and will probably wear it in the shop as it kept me warm. It has wings and a hood with ears. Always useful for scaring our younger customers. #hapoyhalloween everybody.

#annetober #octoberwithanne I could seriously harm any person that uses a book as a coaster! This second hand book arrived this way, but I've embraced it's perfect imperfection- almost looks like a moon. πŸŒ™ #book #books #booklife #booklover #bookaholic #bookaddict #bookstagram #booknerd #bookworm #bookish #bookme #read #reader #reading #bookshelf

It is the month that many of us think of #anneofgreengables because of that famous quote "I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers. It would be terrible if we just skipped from September to November, wouldn't it? Look at these maple branches. Don't they give you a thrill - several thrills?" Apart from sharing a name with our heroine including that all important "e", I also identified with her passion for life and her ability to get into scrapes and then out of them. I was an equally well-meaning, hot headed, often irritating child with a over developed sense of right and wrong. I was accident prone and chaotic but liked organising outside dens and plays and market stalls. American and in this case Canadian fiction provided role models who were more like me. If you ask Mr Grumpy I am still that mixture of chaos and organisation, mood swings, exaggeration and exuberance. I really like these beautifully coloured paperback editions published by Aladdin Press, part of the @simonandschuster stable, the illustrated front covers, that resemble paper cut outs with appropriate themes for each volume, actually have a raised texture. I have paired them with matching smoothies. It is #smoothiesaturday and I have used almost every thing in my fridge and freezer to achieve the result. Making different coloured smoothies leaves your kitchen looking like a culinary explosion placed in a chemistry lab. @jessy_elephant is away today but #ourmolly loved the #purplesmoothie best. I drank the other two! #booksellersbreakfast #hayonwye #addymanbooks #smoothie #healthybreakfast #pinksmoothie #october #annetober #secondhandbooks #lmmontgomery #lmmontgomerysanneofgreengables #usedbooks #usedbookshop #booksforbreakfast #anneshouseofdreams #usedbookstore #bookshop #bookstore #octoberwithanne The post is for @mybookbath @booksnot and @thenobbylife who organised and supported these hashtags. Thank you! #autumn #october

When one thinks of mavens of terror, L.M. Montgomery is not the first name to come to mind. But Stephen King himself could learn a thing or two from this collection. It features ghost stories that are sure to send a shiver up your spine. Think of the iconic scene in Anne of Green Gables, in which Anne and Diana wander through the woods and Anne scares herself so much with her own ghost story that she faints. Now you have a taste of the dark and thrilling power of a ghostly tale, well-told. There are 19 such tales in this volume. Each is deliciously unnerving.

I'm taking advantage of #annetober #octoberwithanne to do three LM Montgomery posts today. And no one is allowed to complain.
Besides, this is a repost so it doesn't count.
I wanted to introduce you to @teereads. Some of you may already know and love her as @teresa_simmons. But now you can follow her exclusively bookish account. If you are unfamiliar with Teresa, here are some reasons to follow her:
1. She is a kindred spirit of mine.
2. She loves Anne of Green Gables (see number 1.)
3. She came up with the hashtag #annetober (see number 2.)
4. Or was it #octoberwithanne? I can't remember. She came up with one of them and I came up with the other. (see number 1.)
5. Have you looked at this photo? Go on, just look at it. Enough said.

"I am so glad to live in a world where there are Octobers" -- happy #floralfriday from Anne of Green Gables!

"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}
β€’β€’ I've always felt that Anne is my literary kindred spirit, so when Jude @mybookbath announced that there were special tags devoted to the Anne books this month, I knew that I had to participate! Aren't these editions lovely? (Even though Anne of Avonlea arrived slightly damaged... a risk of online ordering. Sigh).
β€’β€’ p.s. I'm subbing today and noticed that I get to read aloud The Witch of Blackbird Pond to the kids. I can already tell you that will be the best part of my day!
β€’β€’ p.p.s. I can't decide whether I want to be a princess or a mad scientist for Halloween. Help me decide! πŸ˜†πŸ‘»

Sorry for the many giveaway posts lately πŸ™ˆ
Here is a close up of my Anne of Green Gables puffin in bloom edition 😊 I love the bookmark that came with the book 😍

β€œIn daylight I belong to the world...in the night to sleep and eternity. But in the dusk I'm free from both and belong only to myself...and *you*. So I'm going to keep this hour sacred to writing to you. Though this won't be a love-letter. I have a scratchy pen and I can't write love-letters with a scratchy pen...or a sharp pen...or a stub pen. So you'll only get *that* kind of letter from me when I have the right kind of pen. Meanwhile, I'll tell you about my new domicile and its inhabitants. Gilbert, they're such *dears*.”
πŸ‚
I really relate to Anne’s Type A pen needs. Someone get this girl a #Lamy fountain pen so Gilbert can get some saucy mail to warm his long cold nights at Redmond College! ✍🏼️I remember feeling kinda bummed out by the mood of Anne of Windy Poplars, but hers and Gilbert’s letters were the anchor of this book. She is so sweet about going to specific spots to read his letters and geeking out over how to address and sign off to each other.
πŸ‚
Ok and seriously how gorgeous is this cover?! This is exactly what it feels like in Vancouver and I love it.β€οΈβœπŸΌοΈβ˜•οΈπŸ“š

Have a cozy day dears, and write someone a note with a good pen!
Love with an β€œe,” Echo

"It was really dreadful to be so different from other people…and yet rather wonderful, too, as if you were a being strayed from another star."
L.M. Montgomery {Anne of Windy Poplars}
β€’β€’ Anyone else feel the same way?
β€’β€’ and oh hey, it's October!!! I'm so happy. Nothing says autumn to me more than chilly mornings, golden sunlight, a beloved story, and baking that involves lots of cinnamon and butter. Disclosure: I didn't actually make this cake - it was baked by an acquaintance. But it was yummy & it has inspired me to get back into the kitchen. And now I can't wait to start my autumn baking this coming week! Any favorite fall recipes you can point me to?
β€’β€’ p.s. Did you notice this fallish cover of AoWP? As much as I love the new editions of the Anne books, sometimes the old, battered copies are the ones that really tug at my heart. Maybe it's because of the memories I have as a young girl spending hours caught up in Anne's world... πŸ‚

'I'm glad that I live in a world where there are Octobers' Anne of Green Gables ~ L.M. Montgomery πŸ‚
Do some of you have a tip for me how to get picture on your phone without completely destroying the quality? (I tried to dirctly connect my phone with my computer and load the photos on it but it didn't work)

"I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers."
- ANNE OF GREEN GABLES
🍁
Happy Sunday! It's the perfect day to lounge in bed with a book and a cup of tea. Or bubble tea. I may need to go for a bubble tea run later this afternoon. And it'd be nice to get a little fresh air since it's absolutely gorgeous out today.
πŸ‚
I was inspired by @mybookbath to bring a few of my Anne editions out for this photo. They really should have more photo ops but I have so many editions, I get so overwhelmed.
🌾
And this seems like an appropriate post to remind everyone that my ANNE giveaway is still going on. You can win one of two copies of the pink Puffin editions of the book. Just check my IG story for the original giveaway post!

It's a glorious October day in England: clear blue skies, and golden at the edges. I just have to say it: "I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers." ~ Anne of Green Gables, L.M. Montgomery.
🍁
Anne's fans are legion, and they never grow out of their love . . . If anything, it just gets keener over the years. Any season is good for a return to Avonlea; but when grown-up melancholy and cynicism are tugging at you, there is something so refreshing and uplifting about seeing the world through Anne's eyes.
