I am just now reading Gone with the Wind, by Margaret Mitchell.

I have to say that I am not schocked at the amount of material they left out for the movie, and yet some of it would add so much to the film and the characters I cannot see how they would have put it to film.

I've always thought the same thing, but it's the best movie version of a book that I've seen personally, so I can't complain too much :)

"America Through Women's Eyes," a 1934 collection edited by historian Mary R. Beard, compiling selections from first-hand accounts of American women's history from the seventeenth century to the 1930s. (Who says nobody paid attention to such things until the sixties?)

Just finished the last book in "The Sword of Honor" trilogy and I really enjoyed it. Finishing "Passage to India" now.
