This list of 75 facts about L.M. Montgomery is timely as I finish up the 3rd book in the Emily of New Moon series. it is full of interesting facts about the author of the beloved Anne of Green Gables series: http://www.cbc.ca/books/75-facts-you-...

Has anyone else read the entire Anne series or enjoyed Emily? What is your favourite?

I have read the Anne series several times and loved it. I think [book:Rilla of Ingleside
was my favorite for its unique perspectives on the First World War, which I know affected the author very deeply. I also enjoyed the follow-up novel to the series, The Blythes Are Quoted which is a lot darker than most of what we're used to seeing from Montgomery. Another of her books I really liked as a teen was Kilmeny of the Orchard. It's been a long time since I read that one - should read it again!

@Christine - I loved Rilla of Inglside too! I will have to add The Blythes are Quoted to my summer reads. I just finished the Emily of New Moon series which was terrific!

Today and 144 years ago, Lucy Maud was born... she shares a birthday with my eldest (not that he would be impressed by that).

Christine Stobbe I wish Goodreads had a "like" button - I like that bit of trivia, Susan, and the personal comment too!
