Read the Book, See the Movie Challenge....2010
The Read the Book, See the Movie Challenge is based on a simple idea--read a book, see a movie based on the book, include both in your review. Whether yours is a book blog or a movie blog, this could be a way to add some spice to your posts, expand your outlook, have some fun. Mostly, have some fun.
You don't have to write full reviews both the movie and the book. You can write a review of one then add a brief paragraph or just a sentence or two about the other at the end.
Here's how to join:
1. Select a challenge level:
Matinee: one book/movie
Double Feature: two books/movies
Saturday Movie Marathon: four books/movies
Film Festival: eight books/movies
Festival Jury Member: ten books/movies
2. Copy and paste the Read the Book, See the Movie Challenge button to your blog. (Optional. If you don't have a blog, you can still sign-up and play along. You can
post reviews here.)
3. Sign up using Mr. Linky at http://readywhenyouarecb.blogspot.com/2009/11/read-book-see-movie-challenge_25.htmlbelow. Please list your challenge level in a comment.
4. Get together a list of books/movies that you plan on reviewing. (Optional. You can just see what comes along during the year if you'd rather.)
The challenge will begin on New Year's Day 2010 and will last all year. There will be prizes. You can double count this challenge with any other challenges you're doing in 2010.

*Their Eyes were watching God by Zora Neale Hurston
*Time Travellers Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
