Am I crazy? My older brother has offered to buy me a classroom set of "Gone With the Wind." He's really passionate about it as one of the greatest books of all time and talked about how it could open up the South to my sheltered New England students. He's noticed we have a lot of pride/focus on New England authors around here. It's a 1000 page book! The longest book I've taught (first year, here) was "Divergent." It's 400 pages and it was a nightmare. Granted, I would be teaching "Gone With the Wind" to honors students, not freshmen. Has anybody on here tackled it before? I don't want to turn down an opportunity to expose my students to different books, but it's a really daunting task. Plus, if I turn it down, he's not the type of big brother to settle for something else I recommend. It's a gift. It's "Gone with the Wind" or nothing.
