Time for the bookish discussion question is the day 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻! Here it is: Have you watched a film that‘s actually better than the book? #BookTalk

Skyrimir I liked the movie version of Big Fish better than the book! That‘s the one and only time I‘ve liked the movie better. 7h
vivastory It's a tv show, not a film, but Killing Eve is definitely better than the somewhat mediocre book it's based on 7h
vivastory I think an adaptation of the following would be better than the source material 7h

bookaholic1 The color purple is only one of many 7h
tjwill Mary Poppins 7h
Eggbeater The book was okay. Loved the movie. 7h
Bookishlie Forrest Gump. Movie a million times better. 7h
Jerdencon Loved the Firm by John Grisham 7h
Bookwormjillk Jaws was much better as a movie IMO 6h
leeloo13 The Prestige. The changes they made improved the story. 6h
LibrarianRyan Almost anything Josh Green. And the Twilight series. Don‘t @ me please. 6h
Bookjunkie57 I find that I tend to love what I was exposed to first the most. I adored the movie and almost didn‘t finish the book. 5h
rwmg The original TV series of Brideshead Revisited 5h
mdm139 The 5th wave 5h
diovival @leeloo13 Yes! Movie was waaaaay better. 💯 3h
marleed Can I give a tie to PS I love you. I loved the book. The movie was very different while capturing the essence of the book but with a soundtrack - and Gerard Butler! 3h

Time for the bookish discussion question of the day 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻! Here it is: How does a book‘s popularity influence your decision about reading it? #BookTalk

Bookwormjillk I sometimes put off reading them because I‘m afraid they won‘t live up to the hype 1d
Chrissyreadit It does not, necessarily influence- unless people with similar taste to mine are raving about it. Then I want it. 1d
Sace I have similar thoughts to @Bookwormjillk I'm also a curmudgeon and tend to avoid things that everyone is raving about. 1d

LauraJ It depends on who is hot for the book. I generally trust my favorite Littens. (edited) 1d
OrangeMooseReads It might get the book on my list if it seems interesting but it doesn‘t make me read it any sooner. 1d
Amiable Not at all. I read what I want, not what others like. 1d
DGRachel Like @OrangeMooseReads hype might put a book on my TBR list, but it‘s not going to get me to read it any faster. I‘m too much of a mood reader for that. 1d
BethM It probably makes me less inclined to read it 😂 1d
Caffeinated_Reader Not usually. I try not to read reviews or any type of book info because I like to go in not knowing much and not knowing what to expect. 1d
IamIamIam I don't trust popular opinion too much and I'm almost always disappointed by the hyped up books. I'll stick to my weird eclectic tastes!!! 1d
sharread None, I prefer inde authors. 👍 1d
Reecaspieces Not usually 1d
bookaholic1 I read the back of the book and judge it myself, not from anyone's opinion 1d
Peddler410 Unless the book is one I am anticipating, I let popular books wait. If it‘s an author I love, I will track down a copy ASAP. If it‘s not on my radar, I let the buzz die down — otherwise, I am usually disappointed. 1d
rwmg Only if it sounds like the sort of thing I might like anyway and is popular amongst people whose taste I trust. I've got too many series and genres to catch up with as it is. I've re-read too many hyped books after the hype has died down and wondered why they caught so much attention. 1d
Reviewsbylola I am much more apt to read a book that I‘ve seen around a lot, but only if it‘s a book I think I‘d like or by an author I know. 1d

Time for the bookish discussion question of the day 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻! Here it is: You are placed in charge of a book club, and you can only pick books one of two ways: do you pick books you‘ve already read, or do you pick books you haven‘t read? #BookTalk

CrowCAH Books I‘ve read, so I can be knowledgeable about the content. Would put less stress on me not to have to quickly read and finish the book before the group discussion. 3d
TheSpineView Books I have not read. 3d
Sarahreadstoomuch I run a book club at my library and I ask members to vote for our books for the year. However, I do make the list they vote from, and while it‘s probably 80% books I haven‘t read, I‘ll stick in a few that I have so that I can catch a break sometimes. Still need to skim it again though - discussions can get pretty in depth! 3d

bookaholic1 Books I haven't read, but if someone suggests that they wanted to read one I have already read, I wouldn't stop that from happening 3d
Prairiegirl_reading I‘ve been in my book club for many years and we always choose our books for the year in September. Everyone brings their suggestions that they preferably haven‘t read, we make a master list and pick from there. We ask that people suggest books they haven‘t read so that people aren‘t hurt by someone who hates a book they love. If we all start off with curiosity then hopefully no one gets upset. 3d
DGRachel If those are my only two choices, then books I haven‘t read because while I know that no book works for all people, it sucks if the entire group hates a book you love. 3d
Samplergal Books I‘ve read and know can be a great discussion book. Some books that are great, may not have a lot to offer a book discussion. It‘s how I run mine and have been successful. Even when the participants don‘t like the book, a lively discussion is had! 3d
rwmg When my book club started the rule was books nobody had read, but as the number of members increased that proved impractical. We take it in turns to choose a book. Each of the original members still holds to the rule of a book he/she hasn't read before but the newer members tend to choose a favourite for their first book till they get the idea. 3d

Time for the bookish discussion question of the day 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻! Here it is: If you could be a superhero, which superpower would you have, what would be your token weapon, and what would your uniform look like? #BookTalk

Riveted_Reader_Melissa Teleportation....and a book (of course!)😉🦸‍♀️ 5d
LauraJ I‘d be The Introvert! My super power would be to shut up people holding loud cell phone conversations so the rest of us can read in peace. 5d
tournevis I'd be Faith. 5d
Slajaunie I would have super intelligence and be able to fly. I would have a flyswatter as a weapon (annoying people get swatted). My costume would be a short dress with thigh high boots. Black and purple! (edited) 5d

Time for the bookish discussion question of the day 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻! Here it is: How often do you donate books? #BookTalk

UnidragonFrag I go through my books once or twice a year for ones I don't think I'll read or likely won't read again and donate. Though, I usually end up in goodwill getting more afterwards lol 6d
Lovesbooks87 All the time. I don't keep any of my books after I read them! 6d
eri.reads Every few years at the moment. I've already done a huge donate around 8 years ago and I don't want to let any of the ones I have go lol. 6d

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Does sending them to Litten friends count?!?! 😘😊 6d
Johanna414 Regularly. I have a shelf of books at work that are all donations and used book sale finds. Teachers know they can send students down and choose a book to keep. Many of our students do not have parents willing to buy them books. (edited) 6d
Bookwormjillk I mostly borrow from the library, but about once a month or so I have one to drop at the Little Free Library near my office 6d
TheBookAddict Not very often. I tend to want to keep my books, unless I didn‘t like them 😅. This year I‘ve donated quite a few books to goodwill and little free libraries. 6d
tournevis Often. Doubles and books from closed projects, books that we are not reading nor attached too, etc. 6d
Jaimelire All the time. At our recycling depot there is a book shed where you can leave/take books. When my book shelves and baskets begin to overflow, I donate. (and take a few also!) 😊
LauraJ On average, monthly. 6d
Chrissyreadit Often. 6d
JacqMac Every 6 months or so. 6d
Hoopiefoot Every few months 6d
Sharpeipup All the time. 6d
Amiable Every month at least. I work at a hospital and we have book carts that visit patient rooms, and we also put books in the areas where patients spend hours getting infusion or other cancer treatments. I frequently stop at the local used bookstore and purchase books just to donate them to the hospital. 6d
Stacypatrice Often 🙃 6d
BarbaraTheBibliophage As soon as I fill a shopping bag full! 6d
LapReader As soon as I finish a book I give it away to someone I think would like it or take it to an exchange. 6d
rwmg Very rarely 6d
RenePenn Not often. I like to keep most of my books. I will loan them to friends or family but I usually want them back. 6d
faithx5 Rarely. I only buy books I really want to keep, otherwise I get them from the library. So I usually purge and donate when I‘m getting ready to move but that‘s about it. 6d
RealBooks4ever Whenever Powell's doesn't buy them back from me. 📚 6d
ljuliel I always do. I don‘t keep my books once done. Pass them on for others to read. I usually donate mine to our library for their book sale. (edited) 6d
AmyRebecca Very often. Especially when I see someone has interest in a subject or there is a situation where access to good books is limited... 6d

Time for the bookish discussion question of the day 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻! Here it is: If you could take any one character from one novel and put that character in another novel, which character would you pick, what would be the novel-to-novel transfer, and why? #BookTalk

madamereadsalot1 I would put Edward Cullen into Interview with the Vampire because seeing Lestat with Edward would be hilarious! And most likely gruesome. The sparkling thing and the "vegetarianism" and the virginity keeping, Lestat would be disgusted! ? 1w
Zelma @madamereadsalot1 but maybe Louis would finally feel understood! Maybe we should move Louis to Twilight. 😆 7d
madamereadsalot1 @Zelma bwhahahah!! I feel like Louis would just end up more conflicted and confused. 😂 But this should totally be a crossover! 7d

Time for the bookish discussion question of the day 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻! Here it is: What makes it so wonderful to read when it‘s raining or snowing? ☔️ 🌨 #BookTalk

MamaGina I can‘t read in quiet - the tv is on low or instrumental music is playing - but the BEST accompaniment is the rain in the trees as I read on my back porch. And oh how I love getting snowed in! Books, hot beverages, comfort foods & comfy clothes and throws, nothing better!! 🌧 ❄️ 📖 1w
C.Perone There's no compelling reason to leave the house resulting in guilt free reading indulgences😊😊 A snow day from work is free bonus reading time handed to you on a silver platter ⛄️ 1w
LiteraryinLititz I think it‘s because if it‘s clear out, part of me thinks I should be doing something outside. But when it‘s raining or snowing I don‘t feel bad about curling up and reading! 1w
