Book Review – Happiness Key

It has been since January that I have done one of these posts.  My reading time has been spent consuming Gone with the Wind and I did a series of posts about that book, separate from my standard “Book Review” post.  After finishing Gone with the Wind I needed to go a little lightweight in(…)

Outraged at Gone With the Wind Ending!

I finished the book and I am outraged!  Tired, exhausted in fact, from this 1000 plus page emotional journey that ended so badly!  I wished I had stopped reading when Scarlett was running home, overjoyed with her new realization that it had been Rhett all along!  No amount of words could express my sad feeling(…)

Gone with the Wind ~ Check-in #5

Gone with the Wind ~ Check-in #3

Gone with the Wind ~ Check-in #2

I am starting this update out with a question for those of you that watched the movie before reading the book.  Do you think you would have seen the whole Scarlett marries Ashley thing coming?  I for one, did NOT see that coming.  I also thought it was a strange contrast to what I have(…)

Gone with the Wind ~ Check-in #1

Many of you have been wondering and asking about my goal of reading Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell.  I appreciate all the encouragement and support from all of you.  Until this week I had not made very much progress.  The copy I took out of the library was the Avon copy.  The print(…)

Belated 2010 Resolutions

Belated 2010 Resolutions

I have recently been catching up on my blog post reading, and came across multiple writings on resolutions for the New Year.  Resolutions are not really my thing as I always have this image of dusty treadmills and weight benches used as clothing hangers!  Anyone who knows me realizes I could stand to loose about(…)
