Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell

“I really like books that are set over long periods of time, so that I can follow their [the characters’] lives. It makes me sad when books end, so I like long books. I also really liked the setting and the relationships in the books.”

Marci Totten

Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell

“Because it’s an epic saga that really makes you feel for the characters, and as an aspiring writer myself, I am inspired by the author’s journey.”


Marcus Marsall

Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy SEALs Lead and Win by Jocko Willink and Leif Babin
