Wish I had time to reread books but with the huge TBR list, it'll be a while :D

Here's my Monday meme. Cheers!

I have heard good things about The Man Who Read Too Much. I have that one on my shelf. :)

Linky seems to be behaving now so I am going to link your post. :)

I absolutely love A TREE GROWS IN BROOKLYN and have always felt Francie and I would have been good friends (if she were real, that is).

I'm reading PRISONERS IN THE PALACE, a YA title about a teenage Queen Victoria, and LIVES LIKE LOADED GUNS, a glimpse into the turmoil an affair caused Emily Dickinson's family.

I've read GONE WITH THE WIND twice and know there are more readings in my future.

The Man Who Loved Books Too Much sounds like it could be a good read. I hope you enjoy it! :)

Classics!! I don't ever think you can read Gone With The Wind too many times. I have the same relationship with East of Eden, sometimes it just have to be pulled off the shelf and read again, and again. Another good reason not to have an e reader. lol

A Tree Grows in Brooklyn is just wonderful!

...and I read Self-Made Man a few years ago and really liked it - very interesting!

Carin Siegfried said...

@Kate, did you read Voluntary Madness? I have the audio but I wanted to read Self-Made Man first.

@Teacher, you don't really wish you had the time to reread as I got that time by being laid off! But seriously, I agreed with you about this for so long... until recently. Some books should be reread. GWTW is everything I remembered and more! Awesome!! As Caroline and Lori can attest, Scarlett makes the worst days seem just fine.
