I think it would be a fun idea for our group(s) to have a
Top Ten Romance Comedy Countdown!
I have checked and each of these classic movies is currently on DVD and should be available at your local library (or through your library's network)

This would be a great option for members of the group who aren't able to join in reading a book for the month.

We could have 1 movie designated for each week and then we can discuss the movie the following Sunday or Monday.

Let me know if you're interested!
