Welcome to the master post for the Gone with the Wind (GWTW) Reading Event! This event is hosted by one of my oldest and dearest blogging friends, Corinne. You can find full details for the event on her blog here.
Corinne has tried getting me to read GWTW for years. I even joined a readalong much like this in the past and never got around to opening the book (for shame!). I’m hoping those days are behind me and that I can prove much more dedicated this time around. The page amount used to feel daunting, but after getting through 1Q84 in a little over a week I find myself up to this challenge, especially considering we have two months to read the book.

Looks doable, right? I’ll be in Europe for 2.5 weeks during this event so I won’t be posting for a couple of these updates, but I should be able to make up for the reading before/after my time abroad.
I hope some of you feel inspired to join in on this exciting event! If so, let Corinne know. We’d love to have you take part in the fun.
Have you ever read Gone with the Wind? If yes, how do you feel about it?
