Want to come with me to Tara?

Come June, I'll be going to Tara. Again. Want to come with? Gone With The Wind by Margaret Mitchell is the book selection for June/July in my google reading group, Reading With Becky. If you want to join in, just send me an email. (use the address found in the profile).

All are welcome to join in...whether you're a newbie, a skeptic, or a life-long fan. If you've only seen the movie, then the book just might surprise you!

Anyway, here's the schedule:

Part One: Chapters 1 through 7; Due June 12th
Part Two: Chapters 8 through 16; Due June 19th
Part Three: Chapters 17 through 30; Due July 10th
Part Four: Chapters 31 through 47; Due July 24th
Part Five: Chapters 48 through 63; Due August 7th

This would be a GREAT chance for participants in this year's Southern Reading Challenge. (It's hosted by the fabulous Maggie.) And of course it would go with the Romance Challenge as well. And the Classics Challenge. And the Casual Classics Challenge. And if there were a Books-to-Movie Challenge going, you'd know it'd be perfect there too :) (Speaking of which I really, really, really want this one to be held again.) A to Z Challenge: And if you want to state the obvious, G Title, M Author! Decades Challenge: 1930s. And the Banned Books Challenge. And it did win the Pulitzer--Putlitzer Project. (Battle of the Prizes.) And it made The Guardian's 1000 Greatest Novels List which means it's great for Biblio File's challenge. And the 1001 List. 1% Well Read Challenge.

I'm in! I first read GONE WITH THE WIND the summer I turned 12 - it took me all 3 months to get through it, but I felt very grown up. This will be a fun summer "project."

I just made a trip to the B&N last Friday and picked up the same copy you are showing on your blog. I had a library copy, but since I'll be reading on this for a while I bought my own copy.
Thanks Becky!
