Am reading this today. Unable to put up a photo from my phone as the app on my iPhone isn‘t working.
Later: able to post.
#TheHat prompt immediately brought to mind a critique I‘ve heard about GWTW - one of my staff tried to read it years ago, and did not finish. When I asked why, she indicated that the descriptions were too long. For instance, when Mitchell decided to dedicate an entire chapter to describing one of Scarlett‘s hats, it was too much. I don‘t remember that per se, but this is one of my favorite books, so I might be misremembering?? #LilithJuly
And into Part Three I go! I love the way Scarlett‘s character is maturing as the book progresses and the way it shows both good and bad sides of her character. It‘s an honest portrayal of a young woman, and I do believe I‘m growing to love her. I‘m certainly in love with this book. #readingenvyreadalong
That‘s me now, curled up for a rainy afternoon, thoroughly enjoying Gone with the Wind. I can‘t say I ‘like‘ Scarlett much but then I don‘t think we‘re supposed to. Very behind on this readalong: I‘m only on Part II! #readingenvyreadalong
My only exposure to Gone with the Wind prior to April was the Carol Burnett sketch and seeing the famous book cover where Rhett and Scarlett are lovingly looking in to each others' eyes. I wrote it off as a romance, and I don't read romance. Fiddle-dee-dee!
The writing was amazing! The audio book was impeccably narrated by Linda Stephens, she seamlessly transitioned between many characters and dialects. The whole experience was epic!
Celebrating today‘s accomplishment of finishing Gone With the Wind with a homemade brandy Old Fashioned. Because Scarlett and I both love our brandy! Fiddle-dee-dee! #readingenvyreadalong
I can‘t believe it took me this long to read this book. I grew up watching this movie pretty regularly, so I thought I would know this book. I did not know anything. This book is such more and Scarlett, is a heroine I never knew existed. This is going down as one of the best books ever.
It‘s been a busy day, so I haven‘t had a chance to catch up on my tags and comments. That will definitely be happening in the AM.
As it stands, Rhett Butler is the poster child for #boysdontcry. He‘s also perfect for memes. #sorrynotsorry #anglophileapril
I have officially given up on my reading goal. So now I‘m doing this lovely puzzle that I got from a litten in one of my very first swaps. I can‘t remember who sent it but here goes!
Time to ‘fess up. 😟
I started it in January as my chunkster read for the year. By April I‘d kind of #goneaway and haven‘t gone back since. I was enjoying it, but chunksterphobia got the better of me. I finally admitted last month that I really wasn‘t currently reading this one. Maybe next year? 🤔🤥
One of the things that shocked me about this book is how dim Scarlett is. I don't know but I always thought that she would be a smarter character.
Also, the contrast between Scarlett's lack of wit and Rhett's wittiness makes me smile. They exchanges is some of the funniest dialogue I've ever read that was in a humorous book.
I've always known the bare basics of the story Gone with the Wind, but I never watched the movie or seriously tried to reach the book. So, I was more than a little shocked to realize that Scarlett is so awful and so dense.
Anyways this is my major project for #25inFive. I've been working on this book app year and I refuse to take it into 2019 with me even though I enjoy it.
Opened my #readthemoviesswap box this morning and it‘s amazing! Gone with the Wind which I‘ve been meaning to read ever since I saw the movie in high school but have never quite gotten around to. Snacks, tea which sounds delicious, bookmarks (❤️ the handmade one!) a pretty tote and Southern recipes to make it a themed movie night. Such a cool idea! Song of Achilles is perfect since I‘m reading Circe right now. @TheKidUpstairs thank you so much!
As God is my witness, as God is my witness, the Yankees aren‘t going to lick me. I‘m going to live through this, and when it‘s over, I‘m never going to be hungry again. No, nor any of my folks. If I have to steal or kill - as God is my witness, I‘m never going to be hungry again.
