Get Yourself GONE . . . WITH THE WIND, That Is!

Come join me - and about 100+ other people - for THE GREAT GONE WITH THE WIND READALONG over at The Heroine's Bookshelf.

Whether you've read it before or are reading it for the first time (oh, I envy you!), there's a place for you in the discussion. Erin has a schedule for what chapters will be discussed when (it sounds more formal than it is, don't worry!) and she'll provide some historical background and fun ways to approach the reading. Plus, there will be prizes!

The first discussion starts August 1st and covers Chapters 1-7. Believe me, for such a huge book, it reads incredibly fast. I'm already up to the part where Scarlett meets Rhett for the first time . . .Sigh. Where was I again? Oh, forget it. I'm already Gone...


  1. Oh, how I wish I could come. I've read GWTW at least ten times and seen the movie numerous times (the first time at the theater in '46 when I was seven years old). I'm glad they have never remade the movie. It is perfectly cast; Vivian Leigh and Clark Gable ARE Scarlett and Rhett!

  2. Hey, Brenda! Just head on over whenever and check out the discussion - no worries!

    I absolutely agree about the casting. When I read the description of Rhett in the book, it was Clark Gable exactly. :)
