I have already signed up for two challenges this year, but I’m confident that I could handle at least one more. I had been nonchalantly searching through the available challenges over the last week, and as soon as I saw this one I knew I had a winner.
I am one of those people that will not watch a movie until I’ve read the book. I know I’m not the only one out there. It would seem that this is a slightly obsessive practice maintained by many the avid reader. *phew* This - like finding out that other people do any of the OCDish type things I do - makes me feel better.
I’ve decided to commit to a mid-level goal in this challenge, as I find there is a lot more work involved in providing insights into both a book and a movie, and I tend to be a busy girl. Dependent upon the speed at which I complete this goal, I may be inclined to move up to the next level. We shall see.
For now, I’ve chosen to complete the Saturday Movie Marathon: four books/movies, level.
My selections are:
- The Blind Side, as written by Michael Lewis, and directed by John Lee Hancock
- The Time Traveler’s Wife, as written by Audrey Niffenegger, and directed by Robert Schwentke
- Postcards from the Edge, as written by Carrie Fisher, and directed by Mike Nichols
Wish me luck!
