Booking through Thursday asks this question today:
Even though it’s usually a mistake (grin) … do movies made out of books make you want to read the original?
Yes, of course! Always! And sometimes I even do, go read the original I mean. BUT, that being said, I still think it's better to read the book first.
Speaking of which, have you read the book Flipped? This was a book I loved pre-blog and now it's being made into a movie! You've GOT to watch this trailer and tell me, does this not look like the cutest movie ever? That's because it's the cutest book, and if you haven't read it yet. Really. You've got to get to it quick! Then again, maybe you'll see the movie and then want to read the book.....
