I shouldn’t even think about doing any other challenges but they are just so fun how can I resist. There are two challenges that I’ve been thinking about lately and one was as a result of watching a couple of good movies.
Recently I saw Evening based on the novel by Susan Minot and I quite liked the film. The setting was gorgeous and some of the messages about friendship and family were really meaningful to me. Then, this weekend I watched Everything is Illuminated based on the book by Jonathan Safran Foer and I loved the idea of a “collector”, and I must add the soundtrack to this film to my iTunes.
So these movies have made me want to read the novels they were based on which means I might as well join the Book to Movie Challenge that Callista is hosting don’t you think? I’d just need to select one more book to read but that shouldn’t be too difficult.
The other challenge I found out via Dorothy’s blog and that’s the Outmoded Authors challenge. I already have books by Sybille Bedford, May Sarton and Elizabeth Bowen which have all been sitting on my shelves for way to long. This would be the perfect time to finally read these authors.
Both challenges start September 1st so I still have time to think about these, and hopefully still a bit of time to make some progress in my current challenges even if I don’t finish them. What do you think? I should just join in anyway right? Decisions, decisions…
