ON MOVIES ~ Feeling Bookish...

Feature Presentation...
MONDAY MOVIE MEME

Molly looked around for a weekly meme about movies and did not have any luck. So therefore she decided to start her own! Andy will play along as well - hopefully you will too. Go to your blog and create your own post on the topic, linking back to us in your post, then come back and leave a link to your post here in our Comments section. If you don’t have a blog, just share your response in the Comments section.

This week's movie topic is all about Books In The Movies...

This coming Friday, our monthly Bumble Town Chat will be a meet & greet with myself and the rest of the quirky girls from our group book blog, Quirky Girls Read. In honor of our book blogging interests, today's movie topic is all about books in the movies. Not movies made from books, but movies that feature books, reading, librarians, bookstores and the like. Here are a sampling of what came to our minds. Share on your blog some of your favorite bookish flicks, linking back here. And don't forget to visit your fellow participants!
  • The Music Man (1962) - Scammer Harold Hill falls for Marian the Librarian
  • You've Got Mail (1998) - Bookstore chain owner's takeover of an independent bookstore gets complicated when he realizes she is the online love he's been falling for.
  • The Time Traveler's Wife (2009) - It would be nice if my librarian disappeared just as my overdue charges were being discussed. It would also be nice if my librarian looked like Eric Bana who plays the romantic lead role in this tale of a time traveling librarian in Chicago.
  • Seven (1995) - Well read police detective figures out a serial killer's motives by digging deep into the classics at the library.
  • The Breakfast Club (1985) - Not a very bookish film, but the entire movie takes place in a high school library while the student delinquents try to overcome their Saturday School detention.

 Do you have a topic to suggest to the Monday Movie Meme? Or would you like to guest host? Let us know in the Comments section or send us an e-mail.

Julie and Julia. The story about Julie was annoying but the story line about Julia Child was she was writing her cookbook was great.

This is a great theme this week (I say this every week, I know)!

Here are my top three.

First time I ever heard of Balzac was from The Music Man. Marian, Madame Librarian, was a fan, you know.

This is a terrific topic in that it reminded me of a lovely movie I simply must see again ...

You'd think I could rip off a dozen examples, being the book freak that I am, but I am drawing blanks. How embarrassing.

Lindsey said...

Interesting and fun theme; love the choices! Mine are HERE.

great choices--I want to read the Time Travelers Wife before I read it. Hopefully soon. Kaye—the road goes ever ever on

Great topic, Molly!

You have some inspired choices on your list! The Breakfast Club is a great one & love The Music Man!
I completely forgot that the detectives read the classics in Seven! Nice pick.

My movie list:
Amy's Booksih Movies!

Julie said...

And one of my all time favorite movies..... Nottinghill!

Nicole/MadlabPost: The Answer Man said...

No matter how good Brad Pitt looks on and off some movie sets and no matter how talented Morgan Freeman is, I still have yet to watch "Seven" in it's entirety. This movie is way too creepy.

So, I would like to add "The Answer Man" to the list of bookish flicks.

My blog post for this week's movie meme covers "The Answer Man" which stars Lauren Graham from "The Gilmore Girls" and "Parenthood" TV shows.
