November's BintoM Monthly Giveaway (#10)

Have you ever read a book and then wanted to watch the movie made from it? Or, maybe you've seen a movie and then found out there was a book it was based on.  Well, that was the basis of this monthly meme that I started. 

Welcome to Literary R&R's BintoM (Books-into-Movies) Monthly Giveaway! 

Here are the particulars for this giveaway:
  • Towards the end of the month, I will post the next month's giveaway. 
  • I will leave it open for 2 to 3 weeks.  At that time, a winner (or winners, if I'm feeling generous) will be chosen and notified. 
  • I will expect the winner to acknowledge the winning email within 48 hours or another winner will be chosen in their place. 
  • This is now open internationally
  • You do not need to be a GFC follower to win.  Yes, I would like it if you followed me, but I am not making that a stipulation to participate or to win.

November's BintoM Giveaway (ending November 6th) prize pack will consist of:
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory book/movie combo

Here's a little bit about both:

I have a brand new paperback copy of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory written by Roald Dahl that I bought from Books-A-Million.

Summary:  Willy Wonka's famous chocolate factory is opening at last! But only five lucky children will be allowed inside. And the winners are: Augustus Gloop, an enormously fat boy whose hobby is eating; Veruca Salt, a spoiled-rotten brat whose parents are wrapped around her little finger; Violet Beauregarde, a dim-witted gum-chewer with the fastest jaws around; Mike Teavee, a toy pistol-toting gangster-in-training who is obsessed with television; and Charlie Bucket, Our Hero, a boy who is honest and kind, brave and true, and good and ready for the wildest time of his life!

To go along with the book, I have a brand new copy of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, the movie:

Blurb:  What wonders await you in Willy Wonka's factory? Explore fields of soft minty sugar grass in the Chocolate Room ... Sail along the Chocolate River in a pink sugar boat ... Experiment with Everlasting Gobstoppers in the Inventing Room ... Observe talented squirrels in the Nut Room and travel to the Television Room by a glass elevator. You'll find a lot that's funny, a little that's mysterious ... and an adventure as sweet and satisfying as a Wonka Whipple-Scrumptious Fudgemallow Delight bar.

Normally, this is where I'd have the link to the entry form, but... I've decided to add to this prize pack. Not only do I enjoy comparing books to their corresponding movies, but I also enjoy comparing older movies to their newer, remade versions. Thus, I have decided to include a copy of Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory to this prize pack!

Blurb: Join the expedition visiting legendary Candy Man Willy Wonka (Gene Wilder) in a splendiferous movie that wondrously brings to the screen the endlessly appetizing delights of Roald Dahl's classic book. Coated with flavorful tunes and production design that constantly dazzles the eye, this effervescent musical never fails to enchant young and old.
