In a 2014 Harris poll, women in the United States voted it their second most favourite book, and their most loved novel.
(Number #1 spot is still held by the Bible.)
The novel was: ‘Gone with the Wind’.
It is the one they give a damn about the most.

She had broken her ankle and it was taking a long time to heal. All she could do was read.
Her husband was fed up with bringing home stacks of book from the library every day.
Why don’t you write your own book? he said and bought her a Remington Portable No. 3 typewriter.
So she did.
