I have committed to a Gone With the Wind readalong with my aunt starting around January 15. It will be my first time reading it. Go ahead. Get your exclamations of disbelief out of the way. :-) It's one of my aunt's favorite books (possibly even her very favorite), so hopefully she'll keep me on track.

  1. My first time reading Gone with the Wind was just a few years ago - it's a fantastic experience, and it's so good you are experiencing it at an age that can appreciate it more!

  4. The Bookseller of Kabul may be the first book I read by that author-I have read all her books. I just started The Night Circus, The cover on The Thorn and the BLossom reminds me of the tapestry The Lady and the Unicorn.

  10. I read Gone With The Wind a good few years ago now. I was surprised by how much I loved it. I didn't expect to. Hope you enjoy it.

  11. I've never read "Second Hand Heart" but I've heard really good things about it. Several of the ladies in my book group loved it :)
