Slumdog Millionaire, directed by Danny Boyle, was one of the most viewed movies released in 2008 while The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows was one of the best selling books. On TV people were watching Body in Numbers. If you liked videogames you were probably playing Clue Classic or Ape Quest.
