Task: Read a book that is being made into a movie coming out in 2009
Just to clear up some confusion. The book that you read for the category of book being released as a movie can be any book/movie coming out in 2009. So for example Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince will work, even though that doesn't actually come out until July (perfect for those doing the HP read along as well).Here is a post that talks about this and includes a list of movies based on books that are coming out this year.http://community.thenest.com/cs/ks/forums/thread/13286028.aspx
