The bar is in full swing, and floating rounds of cocktails permeate the garden outside, until the air is alive with chatter and laughter, and casual innuendo and introductions forgotten on the spot, and enthusiastic meetings between women who never knew each others names.

Laughter is easier minute by minute, spilled prodigality, tipped out at a cheerful word. The groups change more swiftly, swell with new arrivals, dissolve and form in the same breath; already there are wanderers, confident girls who weave here and there among the stouter and more stable, become a sharp, joyous moment the center of a group.

And then, excited with triumph, glide on through the sea-change of faces and voices and color under the constantly changing light.

- The Great Gatsby

One of my favorite books of all time. I've probably read this classic about 5 times. :) I even wanted to name one of my kids Gatsby....but my husband would probably kill me. Do you have any books you've read a dozen times?
