Day 23 - A book you wanted to read for a long time but still haven't

It is Mistress Pat by L.M Montgomery. 

Why this particularly, well I guess because I am such a big fan of her other works, I always want to collect them all if possible. This book is a continuation of another book, Pat of Silver Bush. I have that book and always wanted to know what happened when she grew up. 

The story is basically about a girl who hate changes. So this next book where everyone else and herself is growing up and making decisions that can affect whole life it would be interesting to know what the girl who hate changes going to do. 

Why am I still not reading it? Well, it is really hard for me to find her books nowadays. It is annoying, but I guess since YA books are growing rapidly, older authors are not being put in shelves. This also makes me a bit sad. Did you read Daddy Long Legs? That is amazing. It felt About A Boy, Dahl-like . Do you know how hard it is to find that book and the sequel to that book. So while it is nice that budding new authors finding their places, I also felt a bit sad that I can no longer find easily the works of old authors. 

Which is why I am thinking of Kindle where I can easily get classic books. (Pening kepala baca ebook kat komputer. I had tried it once, not gonna try it again).
