Road to Avonlea Season 1 (Giveaway)

Last summer I went to a garage sale and I found an unwrapped, UNWATCHED copy of the full-version of Road to Avonlea: Season 1. I gasped and grabbed. UNOPENED?! UNWATCHED?! Sacrilege!

No price tag.

"Excuse me," I asked, "How much are you asking for this DVD set?"
"Oh, a $1 is fine."

I did not wait two seconds. There was no hesitation. SURELY I could find a kind, warm and loving home for this DVD set come January 2015 during the Lucy Maud Montgomery Reading Challenge. Surely the right person to love it is lurking out there somewhere!

Have you seen the Road to Avonlea series? (Linked to personal thoughts.) My best friend and I watched it as we were growing up and we both fell in love with the characters. In fact, one of my children shares a name with one of the characters from this show (or, I should say, from The Story Girl which I am currently reading aloud to my kids). I really, really love this series created by Kevin Sullivan. Overall, I found it to be delightfully well done. Yes, it has flaws but I can't notice them. Season 1 is most true to the books (The Story Girl & The Golden Road) and I find it so enjoyable.

If you haven't yet seen this series, check it out! I think you will enjoy it. More to the point at present, if you think you'd like to WIN this complete set of Season 1 episodes, please leave a comment below. NOTE: You MUST leave a valid e-mail with your comment in order for your comment to be counted as a valid entry.* This contest is open to US and Canadian residents and will be open through Thursday, January 29th.

THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. THE WINNER (as selected by Random.org) is #4 - Amy. CONGRATULATIONS!

L. M. Montgomery Reading Challenge

*Several times recently people have left entries but have not included their e-mail address. As a result of not having a way to contact them, I had to select a new winner although their name was originally chosen. If you want to win, you'll need to follow my request for an e-mail address! Thanks for understanding!

Best to you all. I look forward to passing this along to someone who will really love it!

We're getting to Season 4 now on Netflix. For some bizarre reason, that season is missing from their collection. When I was a kid, my parents and I tried to collect the on video.

I remember watching an episode or two as a child during the 1 week a year that the cable company would allow everyone to watch the Disney channel for free! Sadly, I don't think Disney would air this anymore. Would love to watch them all! Joan jrstoller1 at live dot come

I still haven't read The Golden Road yet(maybe next year), but I am greatly enjoying The Blue Castle and Montgomery's 1st short story collection right now.

I'm going to enter for my parents(even though I would borrow and watch). (They're still old fashioned, so they rely solely on basic TV and DVDs for TV watching.) ;) I think they would enjoy this, though!
