Books admitted me to their world open-handedly, as people, for the most part, did not. The life I lived in books was one of ease and freedom, wordly wisdom, glitter, dash and style.

"But a knife ain’t just a thing, is it? it’s a choice, it’s something you do. a knife says yes or no, cut or not, die or don’t. a knife takes a decision out of your hand and puts it in the world and it never goes back again."
— Patrick Ness, The Knife of never Letting Go

simonschusterca:

We’re thrilled to be repackaging one of our favourite childhood series—these beautiful new editions of L.M. Montgomery’s wonderful Anne of Green Gables and Anne of Avonlea are now available in both hardcover and trade paperback.

We’ll be releasing one Anne book per season until the last, Rilla of Ingleside, in Summer 2015.

Time to start re-organizing on our bookshelves :)
