Book to Movie Challenge 2016

The Book to Movie Reading Challenge is up now.  This has become one of my favorites. Sign up at ebookclasiscs.

Book to Movie Challenge 2016 – Announcement Post

books to movies
Yes, it’s back! The Book to Movie Challenge is being rebooted in 2016 with more discussions, more monthly themes and more fun because let’s face it — the format last year probably bored all of you to tears! In addition, I’ll be giving away a few prizes throughout the year because bling is great motivation to participate.
♦  You can join at any time.
♦  Neither the book nor the movie has to be new in 2016.
♦  TV shows and mini-series count.
♦  Comic book and graphic novel adaptations count.
♦  Active participation in the challenge is required to qualify for prizes.
♦  Participation includes (but is not mandatory):
◊  Linking to a book to movie review on your blog
◊  Commenting on Book to Movie posts and participating in discussions
◊  Reading and commenting on the reviews of your fellow challenge participants
◊  Giving some of the mini-challenges a go
◊  Talking about the challenge on social media
♦  Prize winners will be randomly selected.
To sign-up for the challenge, post an introduction on your blog that names three (3) book adaptations in 2016 you’re excited about and tell us:
♦  Have you read the book and did you love/loathe it?
♦  Why are you excited about the adaptation?
♦  What do you think of the casting?
