September beings tomorrow!! And although I know fall doesn’t officially begin until the 22nd, the end of August spells the end of summer for me. I’m already itching to get out my fall & winter clothing. I know I’m beginning to sound like a broken record but I’m longing for crisp breezes, scarves, and cute boots!!
In the meantime, Austen in August is over today :(. I mentioned when I reviewed Persuasion, I had hopes to finish two titles this month but it didn’t quite work out that way! Now, I’m setting Austen aside and picking up Margaret Mitchell’s Gone With the Wind. Classics Clubber of August, Fanda over at Fanda ClassicLit is hosting a Gone with the Wind Read Along that will begin on September 1st and end on November 7th. I’ve never read the book and still haven’t seen the movie so besides a Civil War time story, I don’t really know what to expect from this epic classic.
I have this beautiful Scribner paperback edition. It’s a thick 959-page read!! I almost fell over when it arrived in the mail! Am I going to finish it in time?? We shall find out! This is actually perfect timing since I’m study the Civil War and Reconstruction. This is an intriguing period of America’s history and I’m looking forward to reading this book :).
