The Very Informal Gone with the Wind and The Wind Done Gone Read-a-long

At some point last year I stated that I wanted to read Gone with the Wind. A bunch of other people also said they'd be game and so this read-a-long was born. I CANNOT BELIEVE TOMORROW IS MARCH!!! I meant to post about this ages ago, but the important thing is I'm posting about it now!

I'm not going to make this really structured, basically we'll be reading the book throughout the months of March and April. Nicole of Linus's Blanket suggested we also read The Wind Done Gone to get a better look at the slave perspective. So if you can please, read both books and join in on the discussion.

Here's how I'm planning to proceed with this. I'm going to go ahead and use Sundays as a time when we can post our progress. You don't have to make a post on your blog or anything if you don't want, but you are more than welcome to if you want.

I'm going to make a very relaxed schedule here, and I'll try to think of a discussion question or two each week and we can talk about the book in comments.

I know this is really short notice! I do apologize.

My proposed schedule:

March 7: Chapters 1-9
March 14: Chapters 10-18
March 21: Chapters 19-27
March 28: Chapters 28-36
April 4: Chapters 37-45
April 11: Chapters 46-54
April 18: Chapters 54-63
April 25: The Wind Done Gone

All of the sudden I feel really excited! I don't have a button or anything fun like that but please feel free to spread the word either on your blogs, via twitter or facebook...maybe we could discuss Gone with the Wind the movie on the first Sunday in May if there's interest.
