Update #1:

  • Total Books Read: 0
  • Total Pages Read:  149 
  • Books Read Since Last Update: 0
  • Pages Read since last update: 149
  • Total time read:  1.5 hours 
  • How I’m currently feeling: A little frustrated to stop and have to cook dinner for the family (sounds horrible, I know) but excited that my family is participating with me a little bit!  

Mini ChallengeName your favorite and least favorite movie adaptation of a book.

  • Favorite book-movie adaptation: I’m sure there are a couple of good ones out there, but most are never as good as the books. I do have a particular fondness for the Ramona and Beezus adaptation from Beverly Cleary’s book Beezus and Ramona. I adored it because I thought the casting was superb. That cute young actress portrayed a great Ramona Quimby.
  • Least favorite book-movie adaptation: Off the top of my head, Beastly by Alex Flinn is what I think of first. There were some major characters in the movie that did not match the descriptions of the characters in the book…particularly the two main characters. I was also very, very turned-off by the movie tie-in cover to the paperback, which showed a non-hairy beast. The movie was entertaining, but as an avid reader, I cringed at several scenes and characters throughout.

I’d say Day 1 of my first Readathon was a success.  🙂
