So, are your eyes already getting tired from all the reading you're doing for the 24 Hour Read-A-Thon? No? Then you're doing really good, and if they do, let me remind you that breaks are a great thing. You can go outside for 5 minutes, maybe prepare something small to eat, you could even brew some coffee - or better some tea during those five minute breaks! Maybe you're even thinking about a small mini-challenge? Well, then you've come to the right place!
This is my first year joining the 24 Hour Read-A-Thon. In the past I found out about it too late and missed the day, but this year I finally managed it and I even decided to host a mini-challenge.
Remember all those books you read and all the movies you watched? If not, take a moment and think about them. Get up and look at your shelves, look at all the books you got there and enjoy their sight!
Now, what I want you to do for the mini-challenge is to search your memory for books and book series that might also work as a TV series. Which are they, and do you already have some actors in mind for them? (If so, you might even post links to a photo of the actor!)
Now think about the movies or TV series you've watched. Which of them would you read as a book as well? What are they about and what genre would they be?
And finally, think about the books that have already been made into a movie or a TV series. And what about those movies and TV series that were made into a book?
You can just make a list of all the books and movies and series you come up with for all three parts of this challenge.
Five minutes from now, at 11pm my time (Germany) or 2pm PST, the Books to TV cross-over mini challenge will start. It will be open for 4 hours until 3am my time (that's 6pm PST). This means it's for the hours 9 through 13 of the 24 Hour Read-A-Thon.
Now, leave a link to your post in the comment section or post your answers right in the comments, if you don't have a blog!
Once the challenge is over I will put all your names in the randomizer and pick a winner. The prize is a copy of Alexander McCall Smith's The No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency as it has just been made into a TV series! If the winner already has a copy, I agreed with Trish that the winner can pick one of the books from the general prize list.
