Having just completed another parallel post season with my partner Rachel, the blogger otherwise known as the Scientist Gone Wordy, we came up with a notion. Usually around this time of year, she and I begin to select five titles a piece for the year to come. Thought we’d perform a test of change and open it up.
For those unawares, the duo post series is where the wordy one peruses a book (fiction or non-fiction) in question, with me examining its film adaptation. So, we’re soliciting for possible ideas by our readers. Something we wouldn’t necessarily pick ourselves. We’ll collect and tabulate the titles offered in the comments on our blogs and/or Facebook pages.
We’ll reserve something in this request for “possibles”, though. Rachel and I can veto a title each if we’re against a certain book or adaptation for purely artistic reasons. Naturally if we’ve already done it, it’s out, or we’ve scheduled it ourselves, it’s in. So, from here to the end of the year, if you’d like to pitch a publication or its film translation at us, we’d love to hear it.
At the start of January, we’ll announce the top pair with the most nods and give credit to their backers. They’ll join the eight picks we’ve come up with for our 2015 run of book and movie reviews. We’re beholden to those who’ve read our reviews over the past five years and hope this pays some of that back. Feel free to put forward your thoughts or suggestions below. With many thanks.
