Still more lazy thoughts from this one…

On the Lookout for Books and Movies 2016

books-to-movies1

Having just completed another parallel post season with my partner Rachel, the blogger otherwise known as the Scientist Gone Wordy, we’re going back to the notion we did last year. In the past, around this time of year, she and I would begin to select five titles a piece for the year to come. Now we know better.

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 back to ask for possible ideas by our readers, this time for 2016. Looking for 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 during the month of November.

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 the title, it’s out. Or, if we’ve scheduled it ourselves, it’s already in. So, from here to the end of the month, if you’d like to pitch a publication or its film translation at us, we’d love to hear it. In December, we’ll poll the contenders.

At the start of January, we’ll announce the top pair with the most nods and give credit to their backers. They’ll join our eight picks we’ll come up with for our 2016 run of book and movie reviews. We’re beholden to those who’ve read our reviews over the past six years and hope this pays some of that back. Feel free to put forward your thoughts or suggestions below. With many thanks.

    Ohh – I look forward to seeing what’s chosen. 🙂 I haven’t looked into what sort of books are around at the moment so can’t think of any suggestions! Maybe it’ll give me some good ideas of what to read myself. 🙂

    […] As put forward last month, having just completed another parallel post season with my partner Rachel, the blogger otherwise known as the Scientist Gone Wordy, we’re going back to the notion we did last year.
