Why: After a thorough examination and several closed door meetings at the GL, there is actually not one justifiable reason why you should not read this book. Gone with the Wind has sold more than 30 million copies and won the Pulitzer Prize in 1937. Rhett Butler and Scarlett O’Hara are the two greatest fictional characters of all time – and we could just cry even thinking about Melly, who is easily the most enduring. We could seriously go on and on about the wonders of this novel (We think we will).
Editors Note: Apparently it wasn’t the New York Yankees, but the Union army from the north that ravished the confederacy. Sorry about the oversight…
