Summary for the catalog: Similar to her earlier and more famous Anne of Green Gables series, the Emily novels depicted life through the eyes of a young orphan girl, Emily Starr, who is raised by her relatives after her father dies of tuberculosis. The series was less romanticized and more realistic than the Anne novels. Montgomery considered Emily to be a character much closer to her own personality than Anne, and some of the events which occur in the Emily series happened to Montgomery herself. (Wikipedia)

HI, ashleighjane :)
I can be your DPL. I loved the "Anne" books when I was 11. Volume one was our set text, but I read all the available volumes. Now, 20 years later, it will be interesting to listen to a "more realistic Anne". :)

And I can be your MC. What would you like as a MW: a Google Doc, an EditGrid document (Hokuspokus found that as an alternative) - or just a short list in the first post or nothing at all, given that it is a solo and you are "alone" with your DPL?
