You've Got Mail Reading Challenge

January 1 - December 31, 2010

Book PSmith is hosting the You've Got Mail Reading Challenge. She writes:

Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks starred in this 1998 Nora Eprhon romantic comedy that follows the battle between an independent bookstore, The Shoppe Around the Corner, and a mega-chain giant, Fox Books. Released twelve years ago in theatres, I may be prematurely declaring this charming film a classic, but it is my favorite of all time and look forward to celebrating its delight throughout the new year. I hope you will join me in reading the authors and books highlighted, mentioned or pictured throughout the film as well as participate in the bi-weekly movie-themed memes, mini-challenges, quizzes and giveaways.
