Could I Have Written It?

The release date, for the new movie The Great Gatsby, is May 10th of this year.  With it landing smack dab on my birthday, I decided to read the book before then.  

My family was sitting around talking about it, as it was on the front cover of my writing magazine (with the subtitle of "could you have written Gatsby?").  My son told me it's based on the book, and then we realized that not one of us has read the book.

With that said, I am happily reading a 1925 edition I borrowed from the library.

What are you reading?  Could you have written it?

I have a copy too and it's not been read either.
I should probably take it off the shelf and read it!
I just might enjoy it!

...and No. I don't think I could have written it.
