You know, I went through all of school and somehow never had the chance to read anything by Fitzgerald. I have this one, Gatsby, and Tender is the NIght on my shelves just waiting for me.

Love Fitzgerald and definitely love the cover of this version--gorgeous!

Plus I don't have a copy of this novel--not sure why, must have lost it in the flood that took so many of my books awhile ago.

I adore books! How wonderful that you are having such a significant giveaway! I think I'd love to enter. My email is Beth@niquette.net.

Have a perfectly wonderful week--your blog is VERY nice.

I was hit by the Crap Blog Detector, too--and to tell you the truth, I think he's just trying to stir everyone up.

Chin up!

I read The Great Gatsby by Fitzgerald and wasn't very impressed. I would love to read this book though, and hopefully change my perspective of him.
