Okay, movie peeps, let’s vote on something we’d all like to watch in the theaters in June. I’ll post my thoughts at the beginning of the month with some discussion questions. When you write your post I’ll figure out how to use Mr. Linky (seriously, someone may have to walk me through that) so we can share. I have a few ideas on how to keep the conversation going that I’ll address in that first post, but for now we need to vote on a movie.
I hope that you’ll vote for the movie that you are most likely to watch and write a post on, but I understand that life happens and I don’t want there to be (too much) pressure. For this first month, let’s keep it bookish. Next month I’ll have new and old movie options 🙂
