Loving this list! I'm hoping to read Gone With The Wind soon. Are you hoping for any particular number?

I'm currently in a chapter-a-day readalong with Les Mis (for the entire year) so if you spin this on Weds, you'd be welcome to join us - it's a chunkster and made easier by having a lot of supporters to read it with.

Happy spin on Weds :-)
