I always check out the housewares/furniture section first and foremost, secondly I browse the bookshelves. I also love to spend my Saturday mornings lazily looking through library book sales to find those hidden treasures (early editions and advanced reading copies!!) I am definitely a life-long reader.
I found a copy of the novel 'Sideways' at Goodwill about a month ago. I knew Sideways was a critically acclaimed, Oscar winning movie- but had no idea that it was based on a book! I LOVE the movie, and the book was quite a trip, to say the least!
Some of my all-time favorite books have been turned into movies (and TV shows)- heres what I found in my own personal collection (I'm a life-long movie junkie too!):
(*click each image to view larger)
|The Chronicles of Narnia, Fantastic Mr Fox, The Golden Compass|
|The Jane Austen Book Club, Shopgirl, Sex and the City|
|Great Expectations, Pride and Prejudice (and Zombies!!), Little Women|
|Rosemary's Baby, Chocolat, Atonement|
|The Devil Wears Prada, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Because of Winn-Dixie|
|Dexter, The Reader|
All of these titles come with my highest recommendations! Do you have a preference when it comes to reading the book / watching the movie first? We all know the book ends up being better than the movie 99% of the time!
