My (Updated) Anne of Green Gables Collection



Three years ago I shared my Anne of Green Gables collection and I figured it was time to give an update! A funny thing happened though. So I was all prepared to tell you how I went from 39 copies to 55 (!) but as I was going through all my editions to take pictures for this post, I ended up culling 13 books. It was due to a mix of practicality (my poor little book tower looked like it would tip over) and secondly, I realized I didn't love all the covers anymore. And I want my collection to be all the covers I genuinely love and/or editions that have sentimental value.

Now I have 42 copies and for this post, I'm going to focus on the 16 editions that are new since my original post.

Surprisingly expensive now!

My fave of this group: I have soft spot for the yellow one!

I debated buying this for a while and then caved during my birthday month!
3. Barnes & Noble Collectible Editions Series (2012)
I can't find it online anymore
This graphic novel is beautiful and managed to retain the same spirit.

My fave of this group: Really tough choice but I'd pick the Arcturus one! 
It's beautifully illustrated and just look at that slipcase!

I can't find book 1 so I linked to book 2!
This copy is signed by a relative of LM Montgomery! 

My fave of this group: I feel like I should say the Kindred Spirits one but honestly, I have to go with the Icelandic edition! I didn't think it existed and during one of our bookstore stops in Reykjavik, I asked on a whim. I was so happy to find out they had it and it was the last copy too!

What's your favorite copy?
And do you collect any books?
