The Story Girl by Lucy Maud Montgomery

Inspired by three reading challenges.   - a Lucy Maud Montgomery Reading Challenge, a Canadian Authors Challenge and an E-Book Reading Challenge - I decided to read The Story Girl by Lucy Maud Montgomery through the ReadPrint site. 

I thoroughly enjoyed the book.  I just love Montgomery's writing.  I had read her Anne stories as a teen and also read them to my children, but I hadn't read anything else by her.  When I came across the Lucy Maud Montgomery Reading challenge I decided to see what other books she had written and was thrilled to find a number of her books available through the ReadPrint site.  I did, however, wonder how much I would enjoy reading it online.  I needn't have worried.  I wasn't far into the first chapter before I was captivated by Montgomery's writing yet again.  I really should have taken note of some of the great sayings in the book, because there are many, but I didn't want to take the time out of my reading to record them.  I was too lost in the world Montgomery created in her writing. 

I would say I will be reading more books from the ReadPrint site.  The Reading Mode available on the site makes reading on line a real pleasure, at least for me, and there are so many great classics available on the site.

That's awesome! I'm glad you picked up another of Montgomery's works and were able to combine it with other challenges.

Thanks for participating!

I had a similar experience - I read Pat of Silver Bush as part of the L. M. Montgomery challenge and was at first reluctant; having read and loved many of her books as a child I wasn't sure I'd still enjoy them as an adult. Like you, I was pleasantly surprised! I guess she really is timeless :)

Good to know about ReadPrint. I haven't read much online, but sometimes it would be handy.
