Journal Entry 1 by wingGoryDetailswing from Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Sunday, April 15, 2012

6 out of 10

I found this cute little book at a local Dollar Store, and at that price I thought it was worth picking up. I'd been looking for a very small book with a movie theme to use as the bookbox journal for my Based on the Book Bookbox, and this will be it!

The book itself contains stills and quotes from several Disney films, all themed on kisses, whether romantic, friendly, or parental. And as most of the films were based on books (though they seldom stayed entirely true to them {wry grin}, it fits the theme of the box.

The theme of the box: books which were adapted to film, any genre. [No film-to-books, though, just book-to-film.]

See the forum thread (link above) for more info on the theme of the box, with discussion of what's allowed (example: made-for-TV movies, books-to-stage) and what isn't (example: novelizations of films).

As I'm starting the box with quite a few books in it, I'm going to allow some shrinkage; that is, you can replace the books you take with two or three FEWER books if you want.

Any genre goes, and you don't have to replace your selections with books of the same genre, but I would like to see the box continue with an eclectic mix of old and new titles and genres.

Please journal this book when you receive the box, contact the next in line for an address, list the books you're taking and adding, and get the box moving again within a couple of weeks. Enjoy!

Box mailed on 4/17, DC# 03103490000122725144 . It's not going far, so hopefully it'll arrive by the end of the week!

The contents of the bookbox as it begins its journey include new books with old movies, old books with new movies, and books of roughly the same age as the movies - and one book whose movie hasn't quite come out yet! There are a few hardcovers, some new or newish books, and quite a few well-aged paperbacks in varying stages of repair. Genres from humor to horror, science fiction to non-fiction, noir classics to modern hits. I hope there's something to appeal to everyone...

Vertigo
Let Me In
A Night to Remember
The Hunger Games
The Friendly Persuasion
Red Dragon

In Book to Movie bookbox. Quite a brilliant idea to tag entries onto this book as a journal. Looks like we've got about a turnover of 7 or 8 books from the outset.

Glad it made it, and hopefully the books are still fairly dry. It was quite packed to the brim and I had to rearrange a number of the paperbacks so that they all fit. Quite quick for Media Mail, btw. Go USPS!

This was a first-rate box, Gory, with a lot of good choices to take out, and it was surprisingly easy to find replacements. I hope you'll consider doing another round; if you do, DrSlump & I are ready to sign up!

Here's what I chose:
- Whatever Happened to Baby Jane, Farrell
- Diary of a Nobody, Grossmith
- Imitation of Life, Hurst
- The Ambassadors, James
- Palace Walk, Mahfouz
- Magnificent Ambersons, Tarkington

And I replaced them with:
- Midwives, Bohjalian
- A Man For All Seasons, Bolt
- Passage to India, Forster
- Princess Bride, Goldman
- English Patient, Ondaatje
- Age of Innocence, Wharton

DrSlump chose 'Slumdog Millionaire' and replaced it with 'The Golden Compass.' And we both cheated and read 'Sardonicus,' then put it back - but we did journal it.

Thank you again for the box. Minerva101 has sent me her address, so it should go to the PO tomorrow morning (in a new, non-waterlogged box).
