Happy weekend, MetaFilter! This week, I want to know the most memorable moment from a book, TV show, movie, song, or any media thing you've experienced! What was it? Why did it hit you so hard? Why do you keep remembering it? Was it awful? Was it amazing? TELL ME!
Happy weekend, MetaFilter! This week, I want you to tell me the best thing you've read lately! A book, an article, a website -- anything!
What was your required reading in school? Did you have any strong opinions, good or bad experiences? Did you discover a favorite author or were you impressed by some insight in class discussion?

Bonus: as a USian, I'm really curious about what MeFites from other countries read that was considered "standard literature" for teenagers.

Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! This week, blnkfrnk would like to know "what book people would choose to adapt to a movie. If it has already been adapted, what would you do differently? Casting choices, rewrites, choice of book, type and style of movie, all are open to debate." [more inside]
Good Saturday Evening, Metafilter! I'm late today because I got sucked into The Andy Griffith Show with my 7-year-old, who sometimes deigns to watch old black-and-white sitcoms with me. Today's question is courtesy of frimble, what book (and/or movie and/or etc.) has influenced your life the most, for better or worse? [more inside]
