2013 Summer Reading Classic Film Book Challenge: First Roundup
We are past the first month mark so I'm sharing some entries for the 2013 Summer Reading Classic Film Book Challenge.
Everyone can chose to read up to 6 books but if you read a total 6 and review them by September 15th, you are eligible to win a prize. The prize in question is your choice of any single disc movie from the Warner Archive and up to $30 worth of books from Barnes & Noble or your favorite Independent Bookstore (or a gift certificate). The prize can be modified if the winner is from outside the U.S.!
If you haven't read or reviewed a book yet, don't worry. There is still plenty of time. Grab a book and get crackin'.
