Name Six Movies that you could watch over and over. Or, if you're not a movie watcher, name Six Books you could read over and over!

For me, movies would be:
  1. "Gone with the Wind"
  2. "My Big Fat Greek Wedding"
  3. "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days"
  4. The Lord of the Rings trilogy ~ (I have to count that as one LOOOONNNNGG movie)
  5. "Phonebooth"
  6. "Steel Magnolias"
  7. "My Best Friends Wedding"
(Oops, that's seven - sorry!)

And I'm gonna do books, too, just 'cuz I'm a nerd:
  1. The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood
  2. Hawaii
  3. The Bonesetters Daughter
  4. Icy Sparks
  5. Gone with the Wind
  6. Memoirs of a Geisha
  7. Midwives
(Oops, seven again - I keep losing track!)

Shawshank Redemption
Apollo 13
Lethal Weapon (any of them)
The Patriot
Overboard

I can't think of a 6th one.

Books, I am horrible. I don't think I have ever read a book more than once.

I don't really like to re-read anything and can't sit still to watch a movie much less rewatch it . A movie has to pull me in very quickly to make me sit through it.

  1. Little Women
  2. Sense and Sensibility
  3. How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days
  4. The Bachelor
  5. Titanic
  6. Anne of Green Gables (all of them)

To be honest though, I can read nearly any book over and over again since I LOVE to read. I suppose I am a geek like you

Ok, I am taking a guess that I need to watch this How to lose a guy in 10 days. Sad? I've never heard of it. I am really bad about being out of the loop with celebrities and stuff.

YES, you need to see that movie!!! It's a complete chick-flick, although my hubby enjoys it too. (He doesn't watch it over and over like I do, though!)

Oooo, I forgot to put "Chicago" on my list - I put that one on for background music!

*gasp* How could I have forgotten Anne of Green Gables?!?
"Could you call me Cordelia?" *sigh*
I love, love, love those books and movies and Reilly does, too. I've not read the books to her yet, but she has seen the movie and she LOVED it. I may start reading at least the first book to her at lunch time once we start back to school.
