Gone with the Wind Reading Event Master Post

gone with the wind readalong

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.

Schedule:

Friday, May 1
First post – just to enthuse about how excited we are to begin. 
Saturday, May 16
First check-in on Chapters One through Ten
Saturday, May 30
Check-in on Chapters Eleven through Twenty
Saturday, June 13
Check-in on Chapters Twenty-One through Thirty
Saturday, June 27
Check-in on Chapters Thirty-One through Forty
Saturday, July 11
Check-in on Chapters Forty-One through Fifty
Saturday, July 25
Check-in on Chapters Fifty-One through Sixty
Saturday, August 1
Check-in on Chapters Sixty-One through Sixty-Three (final discussion)

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?

  1. I’m so, so glad you are finally reading this. 🙂 Also, you made me smile with “one of my oldest & dearest blogging friends.” Time goes by, doesn’t it? x (Gone with the Wind goes with a “time goes by” theme!) 😀
