#gwtwreadalong

I hadn‘t read this classic novel of the #South until the #gwtwreadalong last year. And it was SO GOOD, and so thought-provoking. I‘ve never been into Civil War stories, but this one may have changed that for me! And I do love my 1970s edition, as beaten up as it is! #readingresolutions

rubyslippersreads One of my faves right next to another fave. ❤️ 2y
BarbaraJean @rubyslippersreads I still need to read that one! 2y
jillrhudy GWTW can be controversial and there‘s the movie, so we forget what an incredible, totally absorbing, NOVEL it is. 2y

I read this volume right after the #GWTWreadalong last year and I very highly recommend it. I have been meaning to make a GoodReads list of all the books MM mentions in the included letters, and I finally got around to it. If you're on GR, please have a look and vote, if you feel so inclined:

https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/122797.Books_Mentioned_in_Margaret_Mitchell_...

rubyslippersreads I have this book, but haven't read it yet, though I did read 2y
rubyslippersreads So many interesting books on this list! 2y

I don't really like Scarlett, but at least she is honest about her feelings. Ashley pretends to be noble and yet has very little self control.

#GWTWReadalong #GWTWReadalone

azulaco I love the part later in the book where Rhett basically calls Ashley a loser because "He can't be faithful with his mind or unfaithful with his body." Yes, I can quote GWTW, I may have read it a few times too often ? 2y
Bookworm54 @azulaco it is a fair observation! 2y

Better late than never! I finished! Loved the writing, but I'm so-so on the storyline. #GWTWReadAlong

I guess I shouldn't argue with success since MM's mother clearly raised a reader, but my god! She sounds like real sicko. #gwtwreadalong

emilyhaldi Fascinating 2y
rubyslippersreads Sounds like her mother had more than a bit of Scarlett in her. 😏 2y
