Today I’m announcing my very first readalong! I’m so excited and I hope many of you join in on the fun!
I absolutely love reading classic books, but when it comes to the longer books, I need help to read them. And I’ve found participating in a readalong is the easiest way to read those large classics books that seem so daunting.
Gone with the Wind is a book I’ve wanted to read for a very long time now, and it’s also one of the books on my Classics Club list: a book list of 50 classics novels or more that you must read within a five-year span. Also, if you are also a member of the Classics Club, and this book is on your TBR, this will be a good chance to read it!
But this book does look quite daunting, so I thought what better way to read this book than a readalong?
This readalong will last for one month, from March 1 to March 31, your time!
Scroll down to check out the schedule!
And please join in on the fun!
How to join in?
- Comment on this post and let me know!

- Get a copy of Gone with the Wind. It can be a physical copy, an eBook, or even an audiobook! All are valid!
The copy of Gone with the Wind that I own was published by Pan Macmillan in 1991. As we will all have different editions, I’ve made the stops at the end of particular chapters so we’re all reading together.
The page numbers beside the stops are where we’re stopping in my book. As you can see, this breaks down the book to about 200 pages a week! Not so daunting as you thought, right?
Start: March 1
Stop 1: March 8 at end of chapter 14 (page 209)
Stop 2: March 15th at end of chapter 30 (page 413)
Stop 3: March 22nd at end of chapter 44 (page 629)
End: March 31st (page 825)
I’m thinking about starting a Twitter group to discuss this book, if enough people want to join in. What are your thoughts about this?
I’ll also be posting a reminder closer to March 1.
