Anne of Windy Poplars READ WITH ME || Book 4 || April 2020

Hey guys! I CANNOT believe that I’m typing down APRIL 2020!! Where has this year been going??

In case you missed it, I’m doing an Anne of Green Gables Read With Me, reading one book from the Anne of Green Gables series every month. This month, I will be reading Anne of Windy Poplars, which is book 4 of the series! If you haven’t been reading along, feel free to grab one of the plans from previous months here, or just read along this month!

So far, we’ve read Anne of Green Gables and Anne of Avonlea. If you haven’t read them yet, feel free to snag the graphic and read one of them this month instead!

Before I share the graphic for Anne of Windy Poplar, I’m going to share some of my favorite quotes from last month’s book, Anne of the Island. In this book, Anne is in exactly the same stage of life as I’m in right now, and it was just so sweet to read!

“It is never pleasant to have our old shrines desecrated, even when we have outgrown them.”

“I suppose we’ll get used to being grownup in time. There won’t be so many unexpected things about it by and by–though, after all, I fancy it’s the unexpected things that give spice to life.”

Yet somehow [Marilla’s letter] conveyed to Anne of the wholesome, simple life at Green Gables, with its savor of ancient peace, and the steadfast abiding love that was there for her.

“Everything is made new in the spring. Springs themselves are always so new, too. No spring is ever just like any other spring. It always has something of its own to be its peculiar sweetness.”

“The little things of life, sweet and excellent in their life, must not be the things lived for; the highest must be sought and followed; the life of heaven must be begun here on earth.”

But the summer had been a very happy one, too–a time of glad living with summer suns and skies, a time of keen delight in wholesome things; a time of renewing and deepening of old friendships; a time in which she had learned to live more nobly, to work more patiently, to play more heartily.

“All life lessons are not learned at college,” she thought. “Life teaches them everywhere.”

“I feel as if I had opened a book and found roses of yesterday, sweet and beloved, between its leaves.”

“We are never half so interesting when we have learned that language is given us to enable us to conceal our thoughts.”

“It wouldn’t do for us to have all our dreams fulfilled. We would be as good as dead if we had nothing left to dream about.”

Now, the Anne of Windy Poplars graphic! This book is set up a little bit differently, and I have that reflected in the graphic. Like usual, I also made the plan with less days than there are days in the month, so that there are some built-in catch up days!
