At first I thought we could all read The Lincoln Lawyer by Michael Connolly because it is coming out as a movie soon and it looks great. Then I thought it would be fun to open this up to any book that has been made into a movie. There are a bunch coming up in 2011 that I haven't read:

Water for Elephants, The Help, The Girl with a Dragon Tattoo, The Lincoln Lawyer, Jane Eyre.

That is just a few of them.
Pick a book that has been made into a movie, either upcoming or older and let us know what you think!

Allison | 11 comments Eat Pray Love is a very good book, I enjoyed it more than the movie..the movie was good mind you but the book has more depth..

Has anyone else read Goodnight Nobody?

Allison | 11 comments I'm done with True Grit if anyone would like to borrow it. Was very monologish but is a classic!
was a very long waiting list for it in the library. And was out of print I guess for a long time.

I'm still trying to finish Goodnight, Nobody! What month was that? I'll try to catch up to whatever is next for the group!

Stella Just recently finished up the "Girl" series with The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest. Really enjoyed all of those books and the Swedish versions of the movies. I've had Water for Elephants on my "to read" list for forever! Maybe I'll get around to it soon now that the movie is out. Gotta read the book before I see them movie! Although, for Shutter Island, I kinda wished I had seen the movie first.
