Gone With the Wind: Novel Adventures Giveaway!

Day 6 of's Novel Adventures Giveaway!

To see the rest of the giveaways click here!

Today's Question: What is one classic book you have always wanted to read but for some reason still haven't?


Margaret Mitchell's epic novel of love and war won the Pulitzer Prize and went on to give rise to two authorized sequels and one of the most popular and celebrated movies of all time.

Many novels have been written about the Civil War and its aftermath. None take us into the burning fields and cities of the American South as Gone With the Wind does, creating haunting scenes and thrilling portraits of characters so vivid that we remember their words and feel their fear and hunger for the rest of our lives.

In the two main characters, the white-shouldered, irresistible Scarlett and the flashy, contemptuous Rhett, Margaret Mitchell not only conveyed a timeless story of survival under the harshest of circumstances, she also created two of the most famous lovers in the English-speaking world since Romeo and Juliet.

  1. Dracula....maybe its not a classic, but I have had it on my bookshelf forever meaning to read it and have yet to crack it open.

  2. Tom Sawyer---Have read Huckleberry Finn twice ---but still need to read about Tom's adventures!

  3. Pride and Prejudice -- i m afraid i will not like it

  4. I'd have to say The Catcher in the Rye. As an English major it's assumed we have all read it, but I never have! I recently found it at a used bookstore so I'm a little closer now. :P

  5. Gone With the Wind is actually one of the classics I've always wanted read but never have. Another one is The Count of Monte Cristo. I tried to read it, but didn't make very far. It is a very long book.

    One classic I have wanted to read is The Count of Monte Cristo, I bought it but never got around to it.

  7. I really want to read Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. Or pretty much any book by her, haha. I feel like I need to read more classic literature.

  8. Hehe, I'd have to say Gone with the Wind. I've been wanting to read it for ages.


  9. Jane Eyre or To Kill A Mockingbird. (We read Mockingbird in high school, but I was so overloaded with other work, I had to go the Cliff's Notes route - I'm ashamed.)

  10. The classic I've wanted to read and havent! Well that would be the lovely mansfield park...but because I don't own it.

  13. A lot of the ones you guys listed I need to read! I bought Pride and Prejudice a few years ago because it's one of my good friend's favorite books but I still haven't read it!

    Amee- The Catcher in the Rye is GREAT!
