Today I have a couple of exciting updates for this year’s Book to Movie Challenge. This year for the challenge, Sergio of Tipping My Fedora reviewed over 20 books and their movie adaptations while I’ve been working pretty hard to meet my goal of 12. So I thought, you know who should be co-hosting this challenge? Sergio. So I asked if he’d be interested and he said yes! That means that for two of the quarterly round-ups, Sergio will be doing posts updating you on how the challenge is going while I do the other two. Once the linky for adding reviews goes live next year, you’ll also be able to add reviews at a post on his blog as well as here at Doing Dewey.
Also, we have a new challenge level! Since there are some people like Sergio who review an awful lot of movies, I thought we should have a challenge level that’s actually a bit of a challenge for them. So today we’re adding the Movie Auteur level. If, like me, you hadn’t heard the word “auteur” before, here’s the google definition: a filmmaker whose personal influence and artistic control over a movie are so great that the filmmaker is regarded as the author of the movie. So there you have it folks! If you’re someone who watches a lot of movies, feel free to upgrade your challenge level. And if you love a good book to movie review, be sure to check out Sergio’s blog Tipping My Fedora.
