Southern Belle Movie and Book Week: Gone With the Wind Book

As I mentioned yesterday, I was out of college before I finally had the time and energy to read Gone With the Wind from cover to cover.  Not that I had’t tried to read it a few times before then.  And I am so glad I finally did make it to the end.  At that time once I started reading it I didn’t want to put it down.  I would love to do it again, but I have to find the time and energy again.  Hopefully within the next year I can make that happen again.  My love of all things Gone With the Wind extended into research papers in high school about Margret Mitchell annd one year for vacation, Atlanta so I could go to the Margret Mitchell house.  As for sequals to Gone With the Wind don’t get me started on them.  Granted there have not been many, two that I am aware of.  I have had this discussion with my friend before, I really don’t feel like the book Scarlett is how the great Scarlett O’Hara would pick up and move on after the love of her life Rhett Butler walked out on her, especially after she just finally realized he was the love of her life.  And Rhett Butler would never and I mean never marry another woman.  Now Rhett Butler’s People I found that a little more believeable.  To me Gone With the Wind will always be one of my favorite books and Rhett Butler and Scarlett O’Hara will always be one of my favorite literary couples.  Not to mention Rhett Butler has given me false hope for finding the perfect man.
