Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery. I wasn't a big fan of reading before my family took a trip to Prince Edward Island and we visited Green Gables. I bought the book at the gift shop and immediately read it over the course of our holiday. My parents couldn't get me to put it down, even to go to the beach! My mom took me back to Green Gables when I finished the book, and I bought all the rest of the books in the series. From that time on, I just loved to read!
