I'm re-posting today's TT and Tuesday 

 1st chapter 1st paragraph 
hosted by Diane of Bibliophile by the Sea

"Mrs Rachel Lynde lived just where the Avonlea main road dipped down into a little hollow, fringed with alders and ladies' eardrops, and traversed by a brook that had its source away back in the woods of the old Cuthbert place; it was reputed to be an intricate, headlong brook in its earlier course through those woods, with dark secrets of pool and cascade; but by the time it reached Lynde's Hollow it was a quiet, well-conducted little stream, for not even a brook could run past Mrs Rachel Lynde's door without due regard for decency and decorum; it probably was conscious that Mrs Rachel was sitting at her door, keeping a sharp eye on everything that passed, from brooks and children up, and that if she noticed anything odd or out of place she would never rest until she had ferreted out the whys and wherefores thereof."

and that 1st paragraph is all one sentence!

Now here's My TT ~

"Marilla's lips twitched understandingly.  
She had expected Mrs. Rachel up; 
she had known that the sight of Matthew jaunting off so unaccountably would be too much for her neighbour's curiosity."
Marilla Cuthbert,
in Anne of Green Gables
by LM Montgomery
{ chapter 1, page 5 }

I'd have to keep reading. I know I'd like this one:) thanks for joining us this week.

Beth F said...

I've read this several times. Enjoy.

Kim@Time2Read said...

I'm not sure if I would keep reading. I know I should....but I usually don't do well with the 'classics'.

Catherine @ Book Club Librarian said...

It's been a while since I last came across this book. Now I want to pick it up again.

My Tuesday intro:

Kym said...

Anne of Green Gables remains one of my all-time favorite books, no matter how old I get or how many times I've read it. :-) It would be interesting to hear it as an audiobook, I think.

Tea said...

I would enjoye hearing or reading it.

Literary Feline said...

I have never read any of the Anne of Green Gables books, can you believe it? It seems a crime somehow. I wouldn't mind reading them with my daughter when she's older. :-)

I've never read this but my daughter is at the moment. I know it's a very beloved classic. The teaser sounds like we have a somewhat nosy neighbor here... :)

Great teaser! I loved Anne of Green Gables (well, the whole series!) Thanks for stopping by! Happy reading!

Sandra Nachlinger said...

I re-read this classic not too long ago and enjoyed it, even though all those LY adverbs drove me nuts! It's interesting how writing styles change over the years.
My Teaser is from SINFUL FOLK. There's a giveaway too.

'Anne of Green Gables' is such a classic and I still haven' read it. I feel like maybe I should've read it as a child, but no one around me ever read it either :( I hope you enjoy it :)
