Today's Breakfast Book...

Reading at breakfast starts the day out right. Well, actually, reading in bed then reading at breakfast starts the day out right.

This morning, I read the first chapter of Rhett Butler's People. Bought it at the school book fair awhile back and wasn't planning to read it yet but I'm already enthralled. Oh, I think it is going to be a good one.

Gone With The Wind is one of my all time favorite books. Scarlett isn't in the same league as GWTW but is still a fun read. I'm only one chapter into Rhett Butler's People but it seems very well done and may be closer in calibre to GWTW.

It begins with an affair of honor between Rhett and Belle Watling's brother who is no gentleman. With flashbacks to his difficult childhood as a sensitive boy with a harsh authoritarian father, the first chapter provides much insight into Rhett's character. Can't wait to read more!
