Judging a book by its cover

Sophia, Aspen and I had an outing on Monday that involved books and birds. I dropped those two girls off at the pet store to play with animals for free while I sold some media back to Hastings next door.

I was just browsing when I stumbled into the kids section and the title "ANNE OF GREEN GABLES" jumped off the shelf at me. It's the cutest edition of Miss Anne's adventures! If I didn't already have all the books in the series, I would have purchased this little number for Aspen. It would have been a good companion for the Anne doll I got in Canada when touring Lucy Montgomery's world for that loveable cast of characters.

You probably don't know this, but I used to ride horses. And I used to be obsessed. I haven't read "Black Beauty" in years, and if (once again) I didn't already have a copy I could have easily added this edition to my collection (and oh how I wish my cell phone hadn't ruined this photo!).

Have you seen all those beautified versions of books that publishers are now offering? It takes all my restraint to keep from replacing my volumes with streamlined versions. Additionally, I try to keep my book-buying limited, which is why Aspen and I make weekly trips to the Library. I gotta keep her in Baby Signing Time, and I gotta keep me reading something new each week.

  2. I have a lot of stupid purchases lately because of the new gorgeous-re-edition fad. I can't help myself, though.
