Topic: A Bond of the Month ?

I was wondering if this had been done, Pick a Bond film or novel
and then discuss all it points over a month.
  I think it would help motivate some into re-reading the novels or
watching the movies again but from a critics viewpoint.
  Then every two months choose the next on the list. That way we
could all read the Books in the order they were written and get
some info on how and why things happened in the story.
   More knowlageable members might help out with some little known
facts like alternative titles and infulences on Fleming's writing etc.

I concur. I'm not well up on the books, having only read one or two many years ago. It'd certainly motivate me.

I think that's an excellent idea, Thunderpussy.

Good idea. I'm just not much of a reader though myself, but I'd happily participate with the films

Are you referring to my like for Dalton, or my PC's disability to not accept caps? ajb007/wink

I really should get round to it. It's just finding the time I guess.

The only one I ever read was LALD. I enjoyed it, but I guess I'm just not much of a reader in general, never have been really...
