Read the Book, See the Movie Challenge

C.B. James at Rady When You Are, CB is hosting the Read the Book, See the Movie Challenge. He writes:

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.

There are several levels of participation to choose from:

  • 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

Overlaps are fine…and there will be giveaways throughout the year.

I will commit to the Double Feature.  The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger has been on my TBR List for a while.  I’ve haven’t seen the movie yet as I wanted to read the book first.  Next is Dear John by Nicholas Sparks.  Another book that has been repeatedly recommended to me.  The movie release date is February 5, 2010.
