day 28: longest book I've read

I was surprised to find, after looking at the books I've logged as "read" on GoodReads, that Gone with the Wind was the longest book I've read. At over 1,000 pages in some editions, I guess that is right. Although, I don't remember it feeling as long as, oh, say, Vanity Fair did a few months ago when I tackled it. Of course, when I read it way back in high school, my eyes were much better and I read a lot more often than just right before bed. It probably went considerably faster than lots of books I read now do, all that considered.
