  First my Tag Tuesday entry this year. The challenge this past week was BOOKS.  I read ALL the time. My husband reads all the time. (That way he can't fuss at me for spending all my time reading!!) (I keep him well supplied with books from the library!!) Any whooo, back to the challenge.
 My all time favorite book. I read it when I was around 12, maybe 13. My mother gave me her 1939 copy (hardback) to read.  I mean I had already been spending all my spare time reading books. Hardy boys, Nancy Drew, Bobbsey Twins, Little Women, Tom Corbett ~ Space Cadet. I mean we had space shots etc all ready then. If you want a great set of books for boys mostly but girls too, Tom Corbett is great. Adventure, honor, more adventure ~ they were riveting. Trixie Belden was another favorite. I collected all of them, Roy Rogers and Dale Evans (they each had their own set and they also crossed over each other. Our church (Roebuck Park Baptist in Birmingham) had a huge library of books for all ages and contests each summer for the kids of who could read the most books.  I won several years in a row ( I still have my certificates). I usually read 2 sometimes 3 or 4 times as many books as everyone else. I don't think the ladies (in charge of the contest) really believed I read each and every one and they would quiz me about the books. I remembered everything I read (too bad I couldn't do that with school text books) but give me a good novel and I remember everything!! Anyway Gone with the Wind wins hands down with me. It had it all. The panarama of the Civil War, Rhett Butler, southern belles, Rhett Butler, romance, beautiful mansions, Rhett Butler !! I fell in love with Rhett Butler (even before I saw the movie). If Scarlett couldn't treat him right ~ I would have!! And when I got to see the movie I fell in love with Clark Gable. He was perfect for that roll.
 Oh well, here is my entry:
  Go on over and check out the other folks. There are some really interesting tags to be found.

I'm working on some other stuff. I will be back later and bring you up to date with things that have been happening and not happening around the old homestead here.

Hope all of you have a great day and my God Bless YOU.

How lovely! I love Gone with the Wind, too, though I must admit, I've never read the book, only watched the movie. How wonderful and epic!

Thank you for sharing your treasure and your love of books!

I love the book and the film. Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh were perfectly cast.

Such a shame that Margaret Mitcell didn't write a sequel where they reconciled.


really lovely tag x
