Happy Birthday, Anne with an E

In case you haven't heard (highly unlikely) Anne of Green Gables is 100 this year. I think I shall blow the dust off the copy we have kicking around here somewhere and give it another go. I honestly can't recall how old I was when I first read it -- 12 perhaps? -- but my 15-year-old is still reading books about the red-headed gal. Check out Margaret Atwood's article on the Anne phenomenon from The Guardian -- a true piece of Atwoodiana, complete with her characteristic humour and a few well placed jabs at the industry that is Anne.
