Novel Adventures on CBS.com


So last Monday when I was watching The Big Bang Theory and How I Met Your Mother there was a commercial for the new CBS.com original web series, Novel Adventures! What really caught my eye was that the person that plays Lizzie used to be on How I Met Your Mother! Also the lady that plays Laura also plays Brooke's mom on One Tree Hill (she's much less evil in Novel Adventures!)

The web show is about an unconventional book club where these four members find themselves having all sorts of adventures (always relating to the book of the week somehow!) I've always wanted to be in a book club so I was instantly attracted to it! So far there are two episodes out, with the third being released on Monday the 10th! I've embedded the first episode here for your viewing pleasure!

Here are the books that will be featured in the episodes:
The Old Man and the Sea (Ernest Hemingway)
Girls Like Us (Sheila Weller)
The Bourne Trilogy (Robert Ludlum)
Monster of Florence (Douglas Preston)
The Sharper Your Knife, the Less You Cry (Kathleen Flinn)
Gone With the Wind (Margaret Mitchell)
Life So Far (Betty Friedan)
The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Society (Mary Ann Shaffer & Annie Barrows)
Knit Two (Kate Jacobs)

I used to watch a lot of original web shows back before I got my full time job. There are tons of great ones out there! I haven't seen much in the last year though :(

Do you have a favorite show that plays exclusively on the internet?

  7. Nope. Well, unless you count the ones by regular people. Like Nostalgia Critic and Just Some Random Guy...

    I'm kind of looking forward to this one!
