The Great Gone With the Wind Readalong – Part 5 (Chapters 48-63)

Before We Get Started…

If you’re here, it means you survived both the emotional rollercoaster and this very long readalong…and I’m so excited to have finished the book in the presence of such great discussion and input! 

Congrats to Diane, who won a copy of the movie adaptation of Gone With the Wind. For this week, I will be giving away a signed copy of Margaret Mitchell’s Gone With the Wind by Ellen Firsching Brown and John Wiley (our last winner was unable to claim her prize, which means one more lucky winner!).

The Great Gone With the Wind Readalong – Part 4 (Chapters 31-47)

Thanks for your patience, everyone.  It’s a crazy time in the land of the bookshelf, between a new paperback cover, plenty of events coming up, and a jammed life full of reading, writing, and revising.  Oh, and working, and living in a house that’s not a complete hovel.  You know the drill.
