So am I. Let's hope the book provides some sort of distraction while AF recovers.

1. Tuesdays With Morrie by Mitch Albom
BCID 9686080

Just realized this book was made into a made for television movie in 1999 starring Jack Lemmon and Hank Azaria, both of whom won Emmy Awards for their performances...Lemmon for Lead Actor, Azaria for Supporting Actor...and the movie itself won an Emmy for both Outstanding Single Camera Picture Editing and Outstanding Made For Television Movie. It was watched by 22.5 million viewers when it aired!

Will add link as soon as I have computer time.

I released a book which is coming out as a movie in November of 2016. http://www.imdb.com/---/tt2872518/?...

Okay to list it in the Challenge, or better to wait until the movie is actually released in theaters?

Sorry, I just now saw this.

I think it'd be better to wait until the movie is released. Movie projects can sometimes be announced but then never get completed.
