Middle Sister congratulates . . .

Wendy!

AnneWendy is the winner of the ultimate Anne of Green Gables collection from Timeless Reads.  Congratulations to Wendy, and grateful thanks to Timeless Reads and to all my readers.

I’m reading the third book in the series, and I’m a little short on sleep because I had a hard time putting it down last night.

Father’s Day Giveaway . . .

Enter to win a free Lucy Maud Montgomery collection!

AnneThanks to Timeless Reads,  subscribers can enter for a chance to win the ultimate Kindle collection of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s stories this week at MiddleSisterReviews.com!

The publisher is the father of four girls who love the Anne of Green Gables stories, so he created a well-formatted, easy-to-use collection that combines all of the stories in the public domain in a single collection — and the collection is available to readers everywhere. ($1.99/USD at Amazon.com.)

Somehow, I’d never read either Anne of Green Gables nor any of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s timeless stories. I picked up this collection a few years ago, yet it was languishing in my TBR folders until a few weeks ago, when one of my reading friends remarked on her love for these stories. I’m rapidly making up for lost time, squeezing in one story in between other reads, and regretting that I waited so long to get to know Anne, and Montgomery.

All of these stories are available in free public domain editions which were scanned by volunteers but which were not formatted specifically for e-readers, much less for Kindles. These can be hard to read. This collection from Timeless Reads, though, is properly formatted, with all the features that involves, from active tables of content to “go to” links. It also offers links to free audio versions of the stories, and it combines all of the LMM public-domain writings in one set. I like this collection simply because it is easy to read and makes it easy to organize the books in my e-library.

The winner of the free collection will be chosen randomly, by methods that may involve the caprice of a cat or the whims of another four-legged creature.  To enter, you must subscribe* or be subscribed* to MiddleSisterReviews.com and leave a comment on this post.  Share, and boost your odds of winning by receiving an extra entry for each new subscriber you refer to the site. Simply email your friend, and email Sis at Sis@MiddleSisterReviews.com with the address or name of your friend(s) so Sis will know who to credit.

*Subscriptions are free.  Subscribers may cancel anytime.  Sis will not share your email (unless you win) with anyone, ever!  The winner will receive an email from Timeless Reads with instructions on how to claim the collection.

Thanks for checking out my Anne Stories collection. I hope you and your family enjoy these books as much as we have!

Note from Sis:  I think this collection offers so much for so little! I deleted the free public domain editions because this is easier to read, easier to use, and easier to catelogue in my collections.  I’m grateful to Timeless Reads for helping me promote my site by offering this giveaway. If you don’t win, I hope you will consider adding this to your collection anyway.
