The Great Gatsby - F. Scott Fitzgerald

Jim will be hosting this great book. Amazon description, "The story of the fabulously wealthy Jay Gatsby and his love for the beautiful Daisy Buchanan, of lavish parties on Long Island at a time when, The New York Times remarked, "gin was the national drink and sex the national obsession," it is an exquisitely crafted tale of America in the 1920s that resonates with the power of myth. A novel of lyrical beauty yet brutal realism, of magic, romance, and mysticism, The Great Gatsby is one of the great classics of twentieth-century literature."

Sounds like someone should turn this classic into a movie, or three!

    I reread this book about 6 months ago, when an older movie was shown on TV. Don't want to read it again so soon; kinda tired of the book.
