Will You Take the Pledge? Read it First Debuts

A few weeks ago this blog broached the controversial topic of books that are turned into movies. Some of us LOVE them! Some of us HATE them! Some of us are STILL wondering if there is any Ben and Jerry’s left in the freezer–but SOME of us are pledging to always read the book before watching the movie.

Yes, you heard me correctly. Nerdfighter Hank Green (brother of Printz winning author John Green and half of the DFTBA duo, the Vlog Brothers) has launched to promote the reading of the book before the watching of the movie.

Below is a clip of Hank explaining the process of the Read it 1st project.

Will you pledge to never let the movie ruin the book?  I did. If it helps, you can eat popcorn while reading…but take off those 3-D glasses, you just look funny.
