Recent Read: Pollyanna by Eleanor H. Porter

This book is like going back to the basics. It's a really simple read, but so enjoyable. I love how light it is, and yet meaningful.

I can't help but picture Hayley Mills when I read the book, but I'm always surprised how different books are from the movies. There is no grand bizarre in the book, and the emotions of everything are a lot lighter and toned-down. I think ramping things up makes a good movie, but I like how the book is so simple.

Even though Pollyanna has become a mostly negative stereotype in our day, I still had so much fun reading this, and started catching myself playing the glad game--and why not?
