It’s Friday once again and that means it’s time for Connect Five Friday, hosted at Book Date by Kathryn – the meme where we share five book/reading things that connect in some way.
This week I rediscovered Daddy-Long-Legs and I enjoyed it as much now as I did as a teenager. A lovely story of an orphan, written in 1912 by Jean Webster. As I investigated, I realized that there were so many books written before 1920 that are now considered classics – many though, that I haven’t read.
Here are 5 of these classics:
Anne of Green Gables by L.M.Montgomery. First published in 1908, it is the only one of the 5 that I have read. And loved! The notion of kindred friends still really resonates. I’ve watched all the movie and TV versions and read several of the Anne books as well.
2 by Frances Hodgson Burnett. I’m surprised really that I haven’t read either, although I have just ordered an ebook of The Secret Garden through the library and plan to read it asap.
The Secret Garden(1910) A Little Princess (1905)
The Railway Children by E Nesbit was published in 1906. Nesbit wrote many books – none of which I have read.
The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame, was published in 1908
Which of these classics have you read, loved??
