This week we’re talking about books we have always wanted to read but never have. There are a few that I have put off reading for a few different reasons.
I’ve always wanted to read Gone With the Wind. I never could watch the movie all the way through in one shot. I have seen the beginning, the middle, and the end just not in order or in the same sitting. While the bits of the movies I have seen made me want to read the book I worry that I won’t be able to get through it. That it will take me some time to get through, OR that I won’t want to put it down and won’t get any sleep. At least that would be a better reason to not get sleep.
The other book I always wanted to read is the Wizard of Oz. I want to read all the books. I have purchased all the books for my daughter. She absolutely loves them. I honestly don’t know why I haven’t read them yet. Usually she and I have the same taste in books. We swap books all the time. The Wizard of Oz movie is such a childhood classic that is so loved that a part of me worries that either the book or the movie will be ruined. I know its a silly fear. It is completely possible to love both the book and the movie. I have seen a few shows based on the books and really enjoyed them all. My favorite was the Tin Man series on SyFy. That was a great show that followed Dorthy’s granddaughters.
I guess it is time for me to borrow The Wizard of Oz books from my daughter
