Five Books and 15 Movies

When I was younger, I thought about growing up to be famous. I imagined that the Bubby series would go on to sell countless copies and that multiple movies would be made. Since the stories are so short, I assumed that the first two episodes would be one movie, episodes three and four would make up the second film, and book five would round out the trilogy (since the most popular movie series always seem to need to be in multiples of three).

However, recently The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey was released. As you may or may not know, the book, The Hobbit, was intended to be divided into two films, but they later decided there was enough material for three films.

Naturally, that got me to thinking. If a short book like The Hobbit can be divided into three films, then why not each of the Bubby books?

So, without further ado, I urge all of you to create a massive viral social media campaign with the hashtag #5books15movies.

Do I think it will work? No, not really... but that's why I'm relying on all of you to spread the word, so I don't have to have my heart broken when my unrealistic dreams are dashed.

So remember, with all the tweeting you do today, push the idea of #5books15movies.
