I had a busy week as I mentioned in Friday Pick post. I was hoping to work in the office today but I had to pull my share of cleaning the RV which had been disabled for two years. We just got the transmission fixed as we are going to be traveling soon. So I spent 9am to 5pm scrubbing floors and drawers and carrying boxes of dishes and pots and pans into the house to wash. I am tired and my body aches!
Thank you to all who shared last week.
Interesting that most of you do not watch movies or read books that win awards. Seven of twenty-one have seen award winning movies; but only three of us have read a book because of an award. Cheryl checks out the RITAs for good romances. :-) Several others do follow movie and book review recommendations... me too.
The Winner from SBB #59 comments is: #1 Birgit There are still 6 'love' books to pick from and 2 Christmas choices. Birgit please choose a book (or GC if international) from the remaining Love Books List for Giveaway, remaining Christmas Giveaway Books, OR pick from the Updated ARC/Review List and let me know your choice, your address and a choice of bookmarks by completing the WINNER FORM.
Q1. Margaret asks: If there is a movie being made based on a book do you read the book first or see the movie first??
A: I would like to say I read the book but I have seen many movies before I realized there was a popular book, like Gone With the Wind, Casablanca, The Princess Bride and most of the James Bonds films. I did read Lord of The Rings, Left Behind and others before seeing those movies. I've read Hunger Games and The Road but haven't seen either movie yet.
Q2. My question: What is your favorite romance movie??
(While You Were Sleeping)
A: I recently saw a list of fav romance movies. I can't find it right now. But there were some classics and some modern movies.
I do like You've Got Mail, Ever After, Robin Hood (with Kevin Costner), Sommersby and The Last of the Mohicans. But my fav, is portrayed by this pic:
(While You Were Sleeping)
Thanks to those who are sending in Questions. DON'T BE SHY! Surely everyone has a Q or two you'd like to ask. Input suggestions in this Suggested Question Form. At the end of each month I will draw from the suggestions I used the month before and that person will get a book choice or GC. I thank everyone for submitting questions but some of you others might want to get in a question or two as we have a few people submitting most of the questions so far. Either way - it works for me. :-) The question list is being replenished! Thanks for sending in questions!
