You may get a chance to pick up a book or go to a movie. But now the real challenge is to let us know what is better! The Challenge: Book vs Movie Who does it better? Why? If you could go back in time and not experience one (the book or the movie) and only experience the other (book vs movie) what would you pick and why? Don’t forget to share using the #VASRP hashtag! Last and Final Twitter Chat: Will be held on Tuesday September 6th at 8 ET. Hope to see you there! Don’t forget to use the #VASRP hashtag to follow along!
