GAME: The Bookword Game


Have you seen Sherlock Holmes? Have you read the book? Will Robert Downey Jr be Sherlock Holmes in your mind next time you read some Arthur Conan Doyle? I prefer to read the book before seeing the movie of most adaptations (natch), but sometimes the movie is in release or at least promotion before I read the book, and then it's too late to picture any characters. I know only pictured Brad Pitt and Ed Norton in the Fight Club, even though I hadn't seen the movie yet.

Suey had the players come up with a word to describe the situation where you are reading a book, and you end up being able to only picture the character as the actor that portrays that character.

Come on over to my blog and vote on the nominees:

casted book suggested by raidergirl3
Star Lit suggested by Julie
Screen Plagued suggested by Julie
Gone Hollywood suggested by Sherry
Results, here, next week, and a new word to think about.
