Almost There!

My many week long, somewhat epic, journey of reading Gone with the Wind is almost over.  With about 200 pages left (which is saying something; the whole book is 1450 pages), I hope to have it done by the end of the week.  With luck, it will be the feature of this week's Film Friday.

As for the rest of the week, tomorrow you can expect a review of Strange Wine, a collection of short stories by Harlan Ellison.  On Wednesday, look forward to Mary Cassat by Mike Venezia, one book in the "Getting to Know the World's Greatest Artists" series.

I appreciate all of the positive response to the blog so far, and I can only hope that you all continue to enjoy it and that the following will expand :)


  1. I never realized Gone with the Wind was so long! It's been in my tbr pile for ages but I guess I never checked the page numbers lol.

    Have fun finishing it!

  2. Well, I got the normal paperback copy over the trade paperback because it was cheaper. It is also much thicker. I am enjoying it, though!
