The Movie Book Challenge: Update #1

02 April 2009

It's time to check in on how you're all doing on your "Books Adapted into Movies" challenges!

For all the folks new to Life Candy and going "whatcha talking 'bout, Nen?", I challenged my readers to read 9 books that have been made into movies. You can still join! For the details, go to the original post.

It's been a couple of months now since I sent out the challenge. How ya doin'? How many have you finished? 1, 2? None?

I admit that, although I've started 3, I've finished none. I've changed my list a bit:

1. A Room with a View - E.M. Forster

2. Howard's End - E.M. Forster

3. The Lord of the Rings - J.R.R. Tolkien
4. Under the Tuscan Sun - Frances Mayes
5. Harry Potter - J.K. Rowling
Memoirs of a Geisha - Arthur Golden
7. The Three Musketeers - Alexandre Dumas
8. Chocolat - Joanne Harris
9. Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe - C.S. Lewis

Have you changed your lists? Got a whole new one? Are you done? Are you just joining us now? Let me know!

I'm new to here and I've only read 2 of those on the list but the other titles don't really pull me to want to read them. I saw under the Tuscan Sun movie but didn't even know it was a book.

I just finish "Thank You for Smoking" - great book. Even better then the movie.
Loved "Princess Bride" - way better than the movie.
"Chocolat" - meh
"Romancing the Stone" -zzzzz
I'm trying to read "Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe". I haven't gotten past the 1st page, but I think it's because I'm just so damn tired. Bedtime is the only time I get to read.
I'll probably change my list...

I didn't join the challenge, but I am reading the Bourne Supremacy right now! And will follow with Bourne Ultimatum... but maybe not for a while. I'm so stuck on books right now, I find it really hard to find good reads. I need to do more research. One thing I picked up from someone's (completely unrelated) Flickr photo was this list:, so I will be looking to it for inspiration before my next library visit.

Great link, Nic! Thanks for letting us know about it. How do you like the Bourne books?
