Gone with the Wind (Anniversary)
Gone with the Wind (Anniversary) | Margaret Mitchell
Since its original publication in 1936, "Gone With the Wind" winner of the Pulitzer Prize and one of the bestselling novels of all time has been heralded by readers everywhere as The Great American Novel. Widely considered The Great American Novel, and often remembered for its epic film version, "Gone With the Wind" explores the depth of human passions with an intensity as bold as its setting in the red hills of Georgia. A superb piece of storytelling, it vividly depicts the drama of the Civil War and Reconstruction. This is the tale of Scarlett O Hara, the spoiled, manipulative daughter of a wealthy plantation owner, who arrives at young womanhood just in time to see the Civil War forever change her way of life. A sweeping story of tangled passion and courage, in the pages of "Gone With the Wind," Margaret Mitchell brings to life the unforgettable characters that have captured readers for over seventy years."

For Wednesday‘s #bookquote, I‘m sharing this book quote from Gone With The Wind by Margaret Mitchell. This is my favorite quote from the book and the movie. I read this book in 2017 and I really enjoyed it. I would reread it again. After that, I read the sequel from Alexandra Ripley called Scarlett and I still enjoyed the sequel but it wasn‘t as good as Gone With The Wind was. I watched the film adaptation of Gone With The Wind and I enjoyed it.

#OnThisDay in 1936 Margaret Mitchell first published Gone With the Wind. Mitchell began writing the book when, at age 25, she was stuck at home nursing injuries and needed to stave off boredom. When her husband brought her a typewriter, she began writing the tale of Patsy O'Hara. A publisher requested the name change, Mitchell told a friend: "We could call her ‘Garbage O‘Hara‘ for all I care, I just want to finish this damn thing." #HistoryGetsLIT

Oh my gosh, I can't believe I am FINALLY finished with this one, which I started back in April as my #BookSpin pick for that month. This book gave me SO many mixed feelings and made me feel so many things that I have to give it a Pick even though I'll never read it again and I despised Scarlet. I'm not sure I've ever read a book where the heroine was so thoroughly self-absorbed and self-sabotaging. I did have a (very) reluctant admiration for ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) her grit and determination, but then in the next paragraph she would do something so stunningly stupid that I just wanted to wring her neck. Also, Margaret Mitchell, what the heck was up with killing off those last two people in the last 50 pages?!?! I marked multiple passages/quotes in this story, found the writing to be incredibly compelling, absolutely fell in love with Melanie, heart and soul, and was thoroughly intrigued by this ⬇ 4mo
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) perspective of the Civil War and its aftermath. Although I found Scarlet to be brutally unsympathetic as a character, the writing here was so amazing that I stuck it out and finished all 959 pages. Glad to have this one off my list. Even though I definitely didn't love, I do think it thoroughly deserves its place on the Classics list.

TheAromaofBooks @thereadingpal - Well, it took me a long time to get to it!! I've been trying to read more classics this year. I'm not sure I would have gotten through this one if I hadn't just been reading one chapter a day for most of it. That was about as much Scarlet as I could take! 😂 4mo

I can't express how pleased I am with my personal #BookSpin plan this year! The list on the right is my ongoing list of classics/chunksters that I have been wanting to read, and I've read a chapter a day of each month's book until it's finished, which means I've checked off Ivanhoe, David Copperfield, and Of Mice and Men already this year!! I'm about 1/3 of the way through the tagged book, which was April's pick. I'm excited to see which one is ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) next!!!

The list on the left is my #BookSpinBingo list aka May's TBR. I've got some challenge and buddy reads going on. The blank spaces are going to be for “catch up“ books for the challenge reads from past months that I haven't read yet!!

This year's goals included reading more classics, more nonfiction, and more from my own shelves, and I'm actually doing great with all three of those goals so I'm stoked. Several Litsy challenges ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) are really working for me this year!!

#BookReport - Finished two ebooks and the 2nd book in the Arc of a Scythe trilogy. I'm better than halfway through the final book and it's SO good. My chapter-a-day books are continuing. I started Gone With the Wind as my #BookSpin this month and wow are those chapters WAY too long! It's not a bad book, but Scarlett is just annoying. North & South is going along - I still don't like literally a single person in that book. Everyone is so whiny ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) self-absorbed, and melodramatic. The Other Bennet Sister is really enjoyable, though - I keep wanting to rush to the end of that one!! Tomorrow's picture will reveal that the windowsill hasn't changed much! 😂 @Cinfhen 6mo
Cinfhen I remember thinking Scarlet was the most ANNOYING literary character EVER !! 6mo
TheAromaofBooks @Cinfhen - I thought I might find her obnoxious but thought I could handle her for a chapter a day... but these chapters are SO LONG! She's just mind-boggingly self-centered and even though over a year has gone by since we first met her, she literally hasn't changed at all! 6mo

The way to get a man interested and to hold his interest was to talk about him, and then gradually lead the conversation around to yourself—and keep it there.

Haven't done one of these in forever!

1. JonBenet. I'll always remember it and have been slightly obsessed ever since

2. I probably use the library more lately. I'm trying to somewhat be good 😅

3. Tagged. I was staying at my grandmother's one summer as a kid and this was the only book (other than Archies) she had. I must have reread it a dozen times that year and it spurred an obsession

Why do we keep on living, Do we need a reason? I don't think that's a question we are meant to find an answer. We live because we're born into this world. Some days, we need to take a deep breath, rest up, and face the challenges tomorrow.

Three words to describe this book: tragedy, frustration, and courage. What a journey! and no matter what, Scarlett's journey will continue on beyond the book.

My best friend has been on me to read this for a while, but I've been hesitant because I've heard there is a lot of racism in it. I'm going into this reminding myself that it takes place in a different time, but I'm not going to force myself to read it if it becomes to much.

LibrarianRyan It does have racism in it, but equivalent to the time period. Warning, the first 200 pages are some of the most boring stuff I have ever read. Once you get over all of Scarlet's parties, and her 17“ waist and get into the meat of the story it is hard to put down. 2y

#7Days7Books

Books that left a lasting impression on me.

Day 3:
I used to check this book out from the library every summer as a teenager. It reminds me of the sites and smells of summer...the warmth of summer days and nights. I never actually finished reading the book any of those summers until I read it as an adult. Rhett has always been a literary crush of mine. Scarlett infuriates me. How can someone so fierce and strong be so blind?

JenlovesJT47 My favorite book!! ❤️❤️❤️ 2y

"There was much about the South -- and Southerners -- that he would never comprehend; but [...] he adopted its ideas and customs [...] -- poker and horse racing, red-hot politics and the code duello, States' Rights and damnation to all Yankees, slavery and King Cotton, contempt for white trash and exaggerated courtesy to women. He even learned to chew tobacco."

I'd say that pretty much covers life in 1861 Savannah

"[Gerald] had learned early that little people must be hardy to survive among large ones. And Gerald was hardy...[with] hair trigger of temper, quick with his fists and possessed of a chip on his shoulder so large as to be almost visible to the naked eye."

Finished Part Two 🎉 Watching my bookmark slowly move thru big books is so satisfying!!

You were right, @LibrarianRyan and @Bookworm54, the story picks up so much after the first part!!

Linsy Impressive! That is one thick book 😳 3y
LibrarianRyan Yeah. All the 17” waste and partying and drooling over———. I‘m drawing a blank on the name. I want to say Lesley but I know that‘s not it. Now the good stuff. If you really enjoy the book I suggest reading the sequel. 3y
Peddler410 I read Gone With the Wind during the summer between sophomore and junior year of high school. That was a rough time and the book gave me something to focus on. I‘ve never seen the movie and I would like to read it again. 3y

I finished Part One!! Honestly, I‘m not sure what to make of these characters yet. What I DO know is that Scarlett O‘Hara is drama, drama.

Bookworm54 It took me a while to get into this one, and I got very behind on the buddy read! But I did enjoy this book in the end. I hope you do too! :) She is full of drama though! Haha 3y
LibrarianRyan Yeah. the first 200 pages were the most boring thing I had ever read at that point in time. But it was worth it by the end. 3y
