Read in August, 2012

I don't think there are enough words to describe how much I LOOOOVED Gone with the Wind! Hands down, some of the BEST characters in literature! Every page was a portal to the Civil War-torn South and I just could not get enough. I savored so many passages and tried to hold out on finishing it for as long as possible because I simply couldn't bear for it to end! Gone with the Wind has definitely earned a spot in my permanent collection and in my all-time favorite books. I look forward to curling up with the selfish and strong, Scarlett, and the swoon-worthy scallywag, Rhett (who has some of the best lines I've ever read!), again soon. Simply grand!!

Rhett suggested "Caveat Emptorium," assuring her that it would be a title most in keeping with the type of goods sold in the store."
