Book Into Movie Challenge 2009


It sounds like there’s going to be a couple of these this year, but since this one starts Jan 1, I thought I would jump in.

When?
The challenge will start January 1, 2009 and end December 31, 2009.

How?
The goal is to read 2+ books made into a movie or books that relate to TV series (Murder She Wrote and the likes).

Knowing already how many books I read that have usually already been turned into movies, this won’t be too difficult. I will definitely read more than 2 so I’ll just keep a running list. I’d also like to watch the corresponding films as well, so I’ll keep track of that as well.

My Goal – 20 Books
