So in short, each week we'll have a movie, but you won't have to watch it or anything.

Conditions will be set for said movie. All you have to do is to find a book that meet as many conditions as you can, because the more conditions you meet, the more points you'll get. You need to read one book a week.

For example,

WEEK 1: October 7-13

Christina | 405 comments I have a question, does every team have the same movie, or is it different movie for each team?


message 14: by Purvika (new)

Purvika (frostybells) Each member of each team give their choice of any movie to the captain and captain then give the movies to gisbelle... so each team gives four movie ....

through the challenge, we will all have the same movie to find books for but, typically, we will all be mixed on what books we read. It's such a fun challenge because you end up reading books you might not otherwise.

:)


message 17: by Christina (new)

Christina | 405 comments Thank you Trisha :). It sounds like a fun challenge. Now if I can just find a movie not based on a book would be great. :)


message 18: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new)

Trisha | 31442 comments lol I know! That was a big challenge last time too!! ha! the best books seem to have a movie :D


message 19: by Lynn (last edited Feb 20, 2014 10:19AM) (new)

Lynn Do you have any reference websites that can confirm it has been made / not made into a movie?

Edit - Actually I assume you can probably get the answer from imdb?

Once you guys agree on the team captain and the name for your team, please post here. I might not go through your team thread to read all the posts.

As for the movie suggestions, you guys can send to me separately or as a group. But be sure to indicate who suggests which movie.

Thanks.
